Abbott Elementary Season 3: Abbott Elementary is getting another go at ABC. The comedy series has been renewed for a third season. The announcement was made during ABC’s panel at the Television Critics Association just one day after the first season of This Is Us won three Golden Globes on Tuesday night at the ceremony. Quinta Brunson and Tyler James Williams were recognized for their actions in the show.
The Emmy Award–winning series is currently airing the second season, which began on January 4 after a winter hiatus. Season 2 has averaged a 3.58 rating in the advertiser-targeted 18-49 demographic after 35 days of multi-platform viewing, which is a 31% increase from Season 1, according to ABC. It’s also up 13% in viewership, delivering an average of 9.1M viewers per episode in MP35.
“This renewal is a richly deserved feather in the cap of Quinta Brunson, Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Randall Einhorn, and the rest of the cast and crew of Abbott Elementary. This talented group of artists each week 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,” said Channing Dungey, Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Television Group.

Why Is Abbott Elementary Season 3 Co-produced By Warner Bros?
The series follows a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — who are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.
Brunson also executive produces the series. Additional executive producers are Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, and Randall Einhorn.
In a new Wednesday episode, the Abbott Elementary faculty learn teamwork lessons during a day of touchdowns and missed plays. Two of Janine’s students aren’t getting along in class, leading her to seek advice from her colleagues on how to help repair their friendship. Meanwhile, Melissa and Ava plot to bring down Mr. Johnson in fantasy football.
