The announcement that Apple TV Plus would be premiering the ensemble musical comedy Schmigadoon! with its star-studded cast made Broadway fans everywhere feel validated.
The first episode of Schmigadoon!, starring Keegan Michael-Key and Cecily Strong, aired on television in July of 2021. There was radio silence from the network after the Season 1 finale, leading viewers to worry that they had seen the last of the original series’ varied ensemble of characters.
However, in April 2023, over a year after the series premiere, Apple TV Plus announced that Schmigadoon! had been revived for a second season. Is there going to be a Season 3?
Jaime Camil, who plays Sergeant Rivera in Season 2 of Schmigadoon!, has revealed what he knows about the show’s future. This is what he had to say.
Is There Going to Be a Third Season of “Schmigadoon!”?
There has been no confirmation that Schmigadoon! will return to television in 2024 for a third season. Jaime is keeping his fingers crossed. “As actors, we love something more than anything which is to be employed,” he said to Distractify.
Co-creator Cinco Paul “wants to explore the possibility of a Season 3,” the actor says, although it’s not clear where the network stands on renewing the show. “I really don’t know if that’s going to happen,” Jaime said. However, the actor claimed that Season 3 and beyond would be confirmed if it were up to him.
It’s obvious that I don’t have a say in matters of this nature. The actor exclaimed, “But hopefully we’ll have a Season 3 because [Schmigadoon!] is a show that certainly has a lot to give.”
In the first season, Josh (Keegan) and Melissa (Cecily) reignited their romance after discovering the legendary realm of Schmigadoon. Back in the real world, however, the couple’s relationship was strained once more.
Schmigadoon Season 3 Release Date
A second season renewal was confirmed in June 2022, nearly a year after the first season’s transmission finished in August 2021. That suggests Apple TV+ may wait a long before announcing Season 3 of the show. Season 3 won’t premiere until early 2025 if current production timelines are maintained.
Which Actors Are in the Third Season of Schmigadoon?
Both Keegan-Michael Key and Cecily Strong, who played Josh Skinner and Melissa Gimble, respectively, will be back for a third season. Dove Cameron, Jaime Camil, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Ariana DeBose, Ann Harada, Jane Krakowski, and Aaron Tveit are just a few of the series regulars that appeared in varying capacities over the first two seasons.
In the next third season, these actors will likely take on new roles. New cast members could be introduced, too, depending on the story. Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio created the musical Schmigadoon!, and Paul wrote all of the music and lyrics. In 2017, a Primetime Emmy Award was given for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for the show.
The Plot of Schmigadoon Season 3!
Speculation concerning the third season’s plot is difficult because the show has not been officially renewed. In any case, if a third installment is made, you can bet that it will be a spoof of yet another musical.
New York doctors Melissa and Josh find a mythical town called “Schmigadoon” in the first season of this satirical spin on the 1947 musical Brigadoon. In Season 2, the pair moved into Schmmicago, a parody of the Chicago musical from 1975.
Season three will likely feature a musical from the 1980s or 1990s after previously featuring performers from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Who knows what musical will be chosen for satire this time around?
