In 2021, ABC took everyone by storm when it premiered a show titled ‘Abbott Elementary’ as a mid-season entry in the 2021-22 television season. The show follows a documentary crew that is recording the lives of teachers working in underfunded schools. One of the places they decide to visit is Willard R Abbott Elementary School in Philadelphia.
As soon as they reach there, they realize that it is a predominantly Black Philadelphia public school where conditions are really harsh and most of the teachers who work there do not even last more than two years. The show primarily focuses on the issue of how school management can make the lives of teachers miserable by not giving them the services they deserve. The situation might be harsh, but the show continued to make viewers laugh with amazing jokes and great comedic timing from the actors.
Season 1 ended with Abbott Elementary taking their annual, year-end school trip to Philadelphia Zoo and Greg (Tyler James Williams) has made it clear that he will continue to be a part of the school next year. Meanwhile, Janine (Quinta Brunson) decided to take a break from Tariq, and not move to New York with him. Viewers are really excited to see what the future holds for Abbott Elementary and that’s why they can’t wait for Season 2 to arrive. So, when is the next season of ‘Abbott Elementary’ premiering and where can people watch the show? Let’s take a look.
