ABC’s Abbott Elementary will be heading to class again this fall for a second season.

News of the announcement came Monday in the form of a classroom note shared on social media by Principal Ava Coleman (played by Janelle James.)

The note started out in Principal Coleman’s signature fawning tone: “Faculty and Students, (aka My Fans), The camera crew I hired to showcase all that I’ve made happen at our beautiful school thinks I’m a star.”

“I mean, are we surprised? No we’re not. 🙂 With that said, it is with great pleasure that I share I’ll be returning for the 2022-2023 school year! That’s right — Abbott Elementary Season Two is coming to a screen near you.”

The series is created and written by comedian Quinta Brunson.

Brunson also stars in the freshman comedy alongside Everybody Hates Chris alum Tyler James Williams, Lisa Ann Walter, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Chris Perfetti.

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television and focuses on a group of dedicated public school teachers at a Philadelphia elementary while dealing with a self-absorbed principal while being filmed by a camera crew in a mockumentary style.

Abbott Elementary quickly became a ratings and fan darling. The series is ABC’s most popular new comedy in two years among adults ages 18-49. It tied with CBS’ Ghosts in the same age category for top-rated comedy of the season.

Abbott Elementary airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT and is set to return on March 22 from hiatus.
