In addition to creating the series, Brunson also stars in it as Janine Teagues, a passionate, optimistic second grade teacher who strives to help her students.
The series was quickly met with critical acclaim, with the Abbott Elementary Rotten Tomatoes score being near-perfect, and has already been renewed for season 2.
Abbott Elementary highlights what's wrong with today's public schools, but also gives much needed appreciation to the countless teachers who display extraordinary devotion.
Abbott Elementary is more than just a comedy - it is a refreshing tribute to teachers across the globe who work tirelessly to better students' lives.
It's shocking that some viewers would suggest that this show dramatically shift its tone and see these students
and their beloved teachers caught in an unimaginable tragedy, no matter their intentions in doing so.
it's fortunate that Abbott Elementary creator Brunson is so willing to confront her misguided viewers and explain her point of view.
