ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” Is The First ABC Comedy Renewed For The 2022-2023 Season

According to Deadline,

ABC has given an early Season 2 renewal to Quinta Brunson’s breakout comedy series.

In a move echoing the special edition of Lady Whistledown’s Society Paper which announced the Season 2 pickup of Bridgerton, Principal Ava Coleman (played on the show by Janelle James), unveiled the renewal news in a note to “Faculty and Students (aka My Fans”).

Abbott Elementary’s renewal comes as little surprise as the workplace comedy has quickly established itself as a ratings and social media standout for ABC. The half-hour, created, written and starring Brunson, is ABC’s No. 1 new comedy in 2 years in Adults 18-49, and the season’s No. 1 comedy in Adults 18-49, in a tie with CBS’ Ghosts, which also has received an early Season 2 renewal. Abbott Elementary‘s December premiere/preview became the first ABC comedy debut to quadruple ratings after 35 days of multi-platform viewing. Then the Jan. 4 time-slot premiere of the single-camera comedy amassed 9.0 million total viewers and 2.93 rating in adults 18-49 in MP35, ABC’s strongest comedy telecast of new or returning series among 18-49 in nearly two years, since the April 8 2020 series finale of Modern Family.
