Congratulations are in order for the cast and crew of “Abbott Elementary” who took home the award for Best TV Comedy!
The show was up against some heavy hitters:
Hacks (HBO Max)
The Other Two (HBO Max)
Our Flag Means Death (HBO Max)
The win is another added victory and another step closer to a win at the 2022 Emmy’s later this year.
Single-camera workplace comedy Abbott Elementary debuted as a midseason replacement in January (after a December preview) with a 13-episode Season 1 order. It received an early Season 2 renewal in March. Per broadcast business rules, midseason entries receive a 13-episode Season 2 order and, if they return strong in the fall, they get a back order to bring their sophomore run to a full-season 22 episodes.
The show performed so well that the series was given a full season order of 22 episodes.
Season 2 of Abbott Elementary premieres September 21 in the series’ high-profile new Wednesday 9 p.m. slot.
