Less than 24 hours after Abbott Elementary won the 2023 Golden Globe for Best Television Series (Comedy or Musical), ABC made the best possible announcement: Abbott Elementary is returning for season three.
In case you're unfamiliar with the plot, the sitcom follows the staff of an underfunded Philadelphia elementary school as they deal with problems in and outside of the classroom. Per Deadline, Channing Dungey, the chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Television Group, admitted the series renewal was "richly deserved." He said in a statement, “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.”
While the show was expected to return in September as part of ABC’s fall lineup, the third season was delayed due to the simultaneous WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. But now that both strikes have been resolved, we finally have a premiere date for season three: February 7, 2024. So, what can fans expect from this new season and who will be returning to Abbott? Keep reading for all the details on Abbott Elementary season three.
