Whether you know her from her web series The Girl Who's Never Been on a Nice Date ("He got money!") or from her role as Janine Teagues on ABC's hit mockumentary-style sitcom Abbott Elementary, you surely know Quinta Brunson. The Emmy winner is also the creator of said show, which follows the aforementioned optimistic protagonist as she does her best to provide her students with a proper education in the Philadelphia public school system.
Janine always makes do with what she has (no matter how little that is). The hilarious and wholesome modern sitcom has earned three Emmys and an A+ Rotten Tomatoes score of 99 percent. Gold stars all around!

Now, in December, school's out for a late fall break, as Episode 10, titled "Holiday Hookah," will be the last episode of the season before a short hiatus. So, when does the series return?
