The Abbott Elementary team can’t be stopped!
The third season of Abbott Elementary has officially been greenlit!
Variety reports that Quinta Brunson’s acclaimed television show received an early renewal. In a statement, Warner Bros. Television Group chairman and CEO Channing Dungey said, “This renewal is a richly deserved feather in the cap of Quinta Brunson, Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Randall Einhorn, as well as the rest of the cast and crew of ‘Abbott Elementary.”
The show follows Brunson’s portrayal of an elementary school teacher named Janine Teague, who goes above and beyond for her students, along with Sheryl Lee Ralph, Tyler James Williams, Lisa Ann Walter, and Janelle James as her co-stars.
Brunson’s performance on Abbott Elementary earned her first Golden Globe Award on January 10th for Best Actress in a Comedy Series or Musical. The Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical-Comedy or Dramatic Television Series went to Williams.
“Each week, this talented group of artists celebrates true unsung heroes — public school teachers. And for some extra icing on the renewal cake, our favorite group of teachers was honored this morning with two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations and last night with three Golden Globe Awards. Abbott Elementary is the gift that keeps on giving, and I look forward to many more magnificent episodes of this brilliant, authentic and just plain funny series,” Dungey stated.
On Twitter, Brunson expressed her joy about the renewal and the Golden Globe victory.
Yessss! Congratulations to the stellar Abbott Elementary cast, and team for the amazing accomplishments at the 80th Golden Globes, AND the renewal of the third season!
