How Abbott Elementary Season 2 will be even bigger (and probably better) than the Emmy-Nominated first season

Viewers eagerly await the Emmy nominations for ABC’s comedy before this year’s awards ceremony. Abbott Elementary’s return in the fall. Series creator and star Quinta Brunson has been busy crafting the sitcom’s sophomore season, which is currently in production, though there hadn’t been very much current information for fans to get excited over. We now have plenty to look forward to with the announcement by the network that Abbott ElementarySeason 2 will be bigger and better than the Emmy-nominated first season.

DeadlineThe most recent and greatest Season 2 development was reported during Abbott ElementarySan Diego Comic-Con’s virtual panel. It was somewhat unexpectedly announced that the show’s sophomore season has already been granted a full 22-episode season order. Executive producer Patrick Schumacker spilled the news by confirming there will be nine more episodes for the upcoming season as compared to Season 1’s 13-episode run through the midseason schedule. 

Quinta Brunson was initially reluctant to confirm the shocking news. However, she eventually revealed that the full-season order had been placed.

Okay, here you go. This season, we have more episodes than in the previous.

It seemed like a weight was lifted off of Brunson’s shoulders. Abbott ElementaryWe’ve been asking viewers for more episodes since the end of the abbreviated season. Initialy, the sitcom was renewed to air 13 episodes more. This meant that we knew more was in the works. ABC executives decided to increase the order for the show’s full season because it has been so popular and loved by fans. The news was announced at the SDCC. 

Brunson spoke about the new Season 2 and what the fans can expect from the next season. Brunson was eager to share more episodes with students, faculty, and staff at the inner-city school.

We spent a lot of the first season showing what this show is capable of… Now we get to have some fun. We’ve done all the building, and now we get to have some of these fun bottle episodes.

Because of the limited setting and circumstances, bottle episodes are always entertaining for viewers. It’s also a great way to see how characters develop. Nobody would argue that everyone should get their moment. Maybe there will be a Gregory and Janine-focused episode, or one that dips into what Jacob and Zach’s home life is like. Janelle James, Ava Coleman’s actress, gave hope to fans that her character would still be self-centered. Brunson teased at a potential jaw-dropping guest appearance in Season 2. So, there’s definitely more to look forward to for the next season.

There’s so much motivation to make the sophomore season better than the acclaimed freshman one. Primetime Emmys gave the teacher-centric comedy much-deserved recognition on nomination day. James, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Tyler James Williams all scored supporting Emmy nominations, but it was Brunson’s nominations that were even more historic. The Abbott ElementaryStar became the first Black woman to be named Outstanding Lead Actress in Comedy Series and Comedy Series Creator/Producer, as well as Writer in a Comedy within a single year. So, the show isn’t only connecting with viewers, but with the television industry as well. It’s a miracle, considering the comedian almost gave-up on Hollywood and television.

A copyright infringement lawsuit was filed by a writer against ABC and Brunson for allegedly stealing their idea. It’s impossible to predict how this will turn out but it does not appear that anyone is being prevented from filming new episodes. 

Things look bright already for comedy series. The Emmy nominations are not the only positive thing about this comedy series. Abbott ElementarySeason 2 will air Wednesday, September 21 at 9:00 p.m. For more information on the premiere dates for returning shows, visit our 2022 TV Schedule.
