Abbott Elementary is returning for another school year. ABC has renewed the sitcom, which follows the teachers at a Philadelphia elementary school, for Season 4, according to TV Line and several other news outlets.
Season 3 just premiered via the Disney-owned TV network on Wednesday, but ABC executives seemingly saw all they needed to greenlit more episodes of the show.
ABC had actor William Stanford Davis, known to fans as janitor Mr. Johnson, break the news during the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour. The TCA event features networks previewing and discussing their upcoming programs with credentialed journalists; the Abbott Elementary announcement occurred during ABC’s presentation.
Abbott Elementary Season 3 premiered on Wednesday night with two episodes. The episodes featured big guest stars, a proposal and a surprise career change-up for Janine (played by series creator Quinta Brunson).
