ABC Renews ‘Abbott Elementary’ for Fourth Season

Abbott Elementary

On the heels of its supersized season three premiere, ABC has renewed hit comedy series “Abbott Elementary” for a fourth season.

The Details

The renewal was announced by the series‘ own William Stanford Davis at the 2024 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour.

Last season, “Abbott Elementary” delivered a 3.56 rating in Adults 18-49 after 35 days of viewing across platforms, marking the strongest season average for an ABC comedy since the 2019-2020 season and ranking as ABC’s No. 1 multiplatform series.

The series has also been a critical darling, picking up many awards, including Emmys and SAG Awards, so it’s not surprising the network would want to keep the show around for another season.

It’s worth noting that this is the first series ABC has renewed for the upcoming 2024-25 broadcast season.

About the Show

“Abbott Elementary” centers on a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — who find themselves thrown together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life.

Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.

Quinta Brunson, Emmy Award-winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, created the series and stars as Janine Teagues.

Brunson, alongside Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, Randall Einhorn, and Brian Rubenstein serve as executive producers.

In addition to Brunson, the cast includes Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, William Stanford Davis as Mr. Johnson, and Emmy Award-winner Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
