1. What Is Schmigadoon Season 2 About?

In season one, Mel and Josh stumbled upon the magical town of Schmigadoon, a place that’s perpetually stuck in a Golden Age musical. But in season two, Josh and Mel will embark on their next adventure in the town of Schmicago, the “reimagined world of ’60s and ’70s musicals,” per the official logline. So, viewers will likely see parodies of iconic musicals from that time period, like West Side Story, Mary Poppins and, of course, Chicago

Further plot details haven’t been revealed yet, but Apple TV+ did confirm that there will be new original musical numbers from co-creator and executive producer Cinco Paul.
