Our Favorite Teachers Head Back to School in the New ‘Abbott Elementary’ Season 2 Teaser

They’re baaaaack (well, sort of).

As the new school year steadily approaches, the teachers at Abbott Elementary are getting ready to welcome their incoming class of students. 

The first promo video for the second season has been released, and it shows our favorite teachers—Janine Teagues (Quinta Brunson), Gregory Eddie (Tyler James Williams), Ava Coleman (Janelle James), Melissa Schemmenti (Lisa Ann Walter), Barbara Howard (Sheryl Lee Ralph) and Jacob Hill (Chris Perfetti)—returning to Willard R. Abbott Elementary School.

But, there seems to be one little problem: they can’t get into the building. “These new keys I made must be too thick,” Principal Coleman says as she tries to open the front doors. “I blame the locks, honestly.”

To make light of the situation, Janine suggests they have a “heartfelt discussion” about what they’re looking forward to this year. Instead, her colleagues would rather do something else—like wait for someone to open the doors. 

The video ends with the teachers noticing there’s someone inside: the school’s janitor, Mr. Johnson. However, he can’t hear them because he’s listening to music and wearing headphones.

Before the promo video dropped, the official poster for season two debuted on the show’s official page across social media. In the photo, our favorite Abbott faculty members are sitting beside each other on a yellow school bus. “Picking up where they dropped off,” the text above them reads.

Get ready, students: Abbott Elementary season two premieres on September 21 on ABC.
