A.P. Bio Renewed For Season 2 At NBC

NBC is staying in school. According to Variety, the network has handed down a season two renewal to their Glenn Howerton-starring high school comedy A.P. Bio, from Saturday Night Live alum Mike O'Brien.

A.P. Bio features Howerton as Jack Griffin, who, after losing out on his dream job as a Harvard philosophy scholar, is forced to slum it at a local high school, teaching Advanced Placement Biology. Griffin decides pretty quickly that he isn't going to be teaching these students geography, and instead uses the room full of honors students at his disposal to discuss life's philosophical questions.

Patton Oswalt, Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, Jean Villepique, Tom Bennett, Paula Pell, Charlie McCrackin, Jacob McCarthy, Aparna Brielle, Nick Peine, Allisyn Ashley Arm, Eddie Leavy, Jacob Houston, Sari Arambulo, Tucker Albrizzi, and Spence Moore II also star in A.P. Bio, which is executive produced by Seth Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, Andrew Singer, and Lorne Michaels. 

NBC is just beginning the process of handing down renewals to their series, with This Is Us, Midnight, Texas, and Good Girls returning on the drama side and The Good Place, Superstore, and Will and Grace returning on the comedy side. The network recently handed down series orders to the medical drama New Amsterdam, the spy thriller The Enemy Within, the apartment complex drama The Village, the multicamera bar sitcom Abby's, and the Amy Poehler-executive produced comedy I Feel Bad.

Still waiting to hear back on renewals are The Blacklist, Blindspot, the Chicago series (Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD), Law and Order: SVU, Timeless, The Brave, and Rise. On the comedy side, NBC has yet to hand down decisions to Champions, Trial and Error, Marlon, and Great News. The network has already pulled the plug on The Night Shift, Jennifer Lopez's Shades of Blue, and their Taken series. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
