ABC‘s 2021-2022 line-up is looking strong this upcoming television year with offerings like The Wonder Years reboot and Queens debuting in the fall. But for those waiting for Quinta Brunson’s next project, Abbott Elementary, the midseason is when you need to set your calendar.

The comedy series will take viewers to Philadelphia to a public elementary school where the staff works hard but lack of funding has created problems. If you’ve ever worked in the public sector then you know the trials, tribulations, and shenanigans that come with the gig.

Abbott Elementary brings a comedic flair to the kinds of scenarios that occur in schools across the country from being short-staffed to inappropriate co-workers and parents. It looks to be a show that will both make you laugh and point at the screen with its relatable moments within the halls of education.
