Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson originally had a much different idea for how the show would look.

Abbott Elementary is the breakout ABC sitcom about a group of teachers at an underfunded inner-city Philadelphia elementary school.

The show has been met with praise from audiences and critics alike, so it is no surprise that Abbott Elementary season 2 is currently in development after the show was renewed in March 2022.

Along with creating the show, Brunson also stars as Janine Teagues, an optimistic second-grade teacher doing her best to make a difference in the school and her students' lives.

The mockumentary comedy also stars Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie—a substitute who wants to be a principal, Janelle James as Ava Coleman

the inept but vibrant principal, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti—a snarky second-grade teacher, and Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill

After its late 2021 premiere, Abbott Elementary has earned much acclaim, forming a passionate fanbase, largely due to the chemistry of the hilarious cast.

With many teachers across the country leaving the profession, Abbott Elementary clearly understands the importance of showing appreciation for these educators who pour into their students.
