Following its three wins at Tuesday night’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony, ABC president Craig Erwich announced that Abbott Elementary has been renewed for a third season.

During the coveted ceremony, Abbott Elementary took home the awards for best comedy series, best actress in a comedy series (Quinta Brunson), and best supporting actor (Tyler James Williams).

The series, which was created and stars Brunson, is currently in its second season and is ranked as ABC’s No. 1 series.

In addition to Brunson, the show is executive produced by Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker of Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, and Randall Einhorn.

The cast includes:

Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, William Stanford Davis as Mr. Johnson and Emmy Award winner Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.

New episodes of 'Abbott Elementary' air every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.

In Wednesday night’s episode, “Fight,” during a day of touchdowns and missed plays, the Abbott Elementary faculty find themselves learning lessons in
teamwork. Two of Janine’s students aren’t getting along in class, leading her to seek advice from her colleagues on how to help repair their friendship. Meanwhile, Melissa and Ava plot to bring down Mr. Johnson in fantasy football.
