Abbott Elementary Season 3 Officially Has A Premiere Date

Miss Teagues, Principal Coleman, and more of the hilarious cast will be back for more!

Originally Published: 

Don’t worry, kids. We’ll soon be heading back to the fictional Philly school that’s hilariously depicted on the mockumentary comedy Abbott Elementary. Hitting the perfect balance of belly laughs and big feels, Abbott Elementary has quickly become a fan favorite and thankfully it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Now with two incredible seasons in the can, Abbott Elementary Season 3 is premiering soon and here’s everything we know so far.

When will Abbott Elementary Season 3 premiere?

Mark your calendars! ABC announced that Abbott Elementary Season 3 will premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024. New episodes will be available to stream on Hulu the next day.

Until then, you can always rewatch that Bluey crossover episode or head back in time to hear that first school bell ring in repeats of Abbot Elementary’s freshman season. Or watch the Season 3 teaser trailer on repeat to get excited for new episodes to drop. In the teaser, which ABC released on Dec. 12, Janine snaps at a parent, there’s a fire alarm, and Barbara dances in the teachers’ lounge. Needless to say, lots of laughs are in store.

How to watch Abbott Elementary Season 1.

If you’re a little behind on your shows and want to check out this amazing breakout comedy from the very beginning, all 13 episodes of Season 1 are available to stream on both Hulu and Max. You’ll meet brilliant creator and star, Quinta Brunson for the first time in her role as Janine Teagues, the do-gooder teacher who tries too hard. You’ll worship veteran and goddess educator, Barbara Howard (played by the inspiring Sheryl Lee Ralph), and fall over from laughter-induced pain any time Principal Ava Coleman (played by comedian Janelle James) says, well, anything. You’ll also join the rest of America in shipping our girl Janine and the cute newbie substitute teacher as they bond over an array of teaching hijinks and very questionable school lunches.

How to watch Abbott Elementary Season 2.

Abbott Elementary Season 2 is also available to stream on Hulu and Max.

If you want to be in some pretty impressive TV-watching company, Abbott Elementary has even stolen the hearts of some of the best celeb mamas in the business (Dr. Jill Biden happens to be a big fan too). When Brunson shared her “elated” announcement of Season 2’s premiere on Instagram, actress Kerry Washington was quick to jump in the comments. “Elated to watch!!!” she wrote. New mom Mandy Moore was also excited and will likely need something fun to pass the time while her newborn snoozes. “Can’t wait,” commented the This Is Us star.

The second season definitely lived up to the hype and managed to fend off that dreaded sophomore slump too. In fact, the sitcom actually quadrupled its ratings after premiering Season 2 on multiple platforms. Season 3 can’t come soon enough.
