Abbott Elementary Season 2 Has a Premiere Date at Last!
'Abbott Elementary' was renewed for Season 2 with a 22-episode order. Here's the scoop on the premiere date and more.
There’s a reason why ABC’s Abbott Elementary has received glowing reviews and praise. Aside from the mockumentary sitcom’s hilarious storyline, Abbott Elementary is a nearly all-BIPOC cast filled with Hollywood heavyweights. So, it’s no surprise that social media users are obsessed with the show.
Abbott Elementary’s first season wrapped up in April 2022, and fans want to know: Will there be an Abbott Elementary Season 2? And if so, when will it premiere? Here’s what we know.
‘Abbott Elementary’ was renewed for Season 2.
This is not a drill! In March 2022, it was revealed that Abbott Elementary was renewed for a second season.
According to Deadline, ABC decided to give the comedy series an early renewal! The news was announced with a hilarious “Faculty and Students (aka My Fans)” note fresh off Principal Coleman's (Janelle James) desk.
The note featured jokes about Principal Coleman believing that she’s the star and a true natural in front of the camera. But, the good news is that the Season 2 renewal has been officially signed, sealed, and delivered to us all!
Even though many fans were concerned about the sitcom receiving another season, no worries were warranted. After all, renewals are often announced when a show performs well and the showrunners are committed to creating more intriguing storylines. Plus, Abbott Elementary has been a hit since its December 2021 debut. Deadline's March 2022 report noted that the comedy was “ABC’s No. 1 new comedy in two years in adults 18-49, and the season’s No. 1 comedy in adults 18-49, in a tie with CBS’s Ghosts.”
When does Season 2 of 'Abbott Elementary' premiere?
In August 2022, the show announced the Season 2 premiere date with a gorgeous new promo trailer. The trailer shows staff members Janine Teagues (Quinta Brunson), Gregory Eddie (Tyler James Williams), Ava Coleman (Janelle James), Melissa Schemmenti (Lisa Ann Walter), Barbara Howard (Sheryl Lee Ralph) and Jacob Hill (Chris Perfetti) confidently walking the streets to get to the doors of Willard R. Abbott Elementary School.
The official Season 2 promo arrived with a new premiere date: Sept. 21, 2022, on ABC.
