Just when you thought school was out for real, think again! A.P. Bio has been brought back from the dead for renewal for season three, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
But that’s not all, the third season will be showing on the upcoming NBCUniversal streaming service.
The series showrunner and creator Mike O’Brien said in a statement, “I’m so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the fans. The cast and I are thrilled that we get to make more, and I’m excited to work with the NBCU Streaming platform.”
A.P. Bio stars Glenn Howerton as the embittered college professor Jack Griffin, who was forced to teach high school biology after losing out on his dream job. Patton Oswalt co-stars as the school principal Ralph Durbin, with Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn and Jean Villepique playing Jack’s fellow teachers.
Season two had an average of 1.9 million total viewers and just under 0.5 in the demo rating; which was a 30 percent drop from its freshman run. It only ranked second to last in the demo beating out Abby’s, which also got canceled.
The revived comedy has become the first original scripted comedy set to air on the NBCUniversal’s streaming service, which is slated to launch next year with a library of hits like The Office and more, much, much more.
I’m pretty excited about the news. Just before the show was waiting on its fate; I really thought that NBC should not only renew but adding it to their streaming service. And the best part of the renewal is we get to see more Paula Pell.
