The Golden Globe Awards that the Abbott Elementary series and cast took home on Tuesday were Best TV Comedy, Best Performance by An Actress in a TV Series (Quinta Brunson), and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role (Tyler James Williams).

As you may already know, the popular ABC series is set in a public school in Philadelphia and centers around a group of teachers who all have a strong desire to help their pupils, despite having varying degrees of experience and optimism.

Quinta Brunson stars as second-grade teacher Janine Teagues, alongside Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti, Janelle James as principal Ava Coleman, William Stanford Davis as Mr. Johnson and Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill.

In regards to the renewal, Warner Bros. Television Group chairman and CEO Channing Dungey said,

“This renewal is a richly deserved feather in the cap of Quinta Brunson, Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Randall Einhorn, as well as the rest of the cast and crew of ‘Abbott Elementary.'”

He added,

“Each week, this talented group of artists celebrates true unsung heroes — public school teachers. And for some extra icing on the renewal cake, our favorite group of teachers was honored this morning with two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations and last night with three Golden Globe Awards. ‘Abbott Elementary’ is the gift that keeps on giving, and I look forward to many more magnificent episodes of this brilliant, authentic and just plain funny series.”
