Schmigadoon Season 2 warbles its series launch with a musical trailer. But instead of happy sounds, the new season strikes darker notes. Here’s what we know about the new episodes of the Apple TV+ series so far.
- In April 2023, the dance leg will be shaken again, in the 2nd season of “Schmigadoon!”.
- This time, however, the series hits a completely different notch than in the sugary sweet first season.
- The first trailer for the new episodes shows how Melissa and Josh are drawn into the dark era of musicals.
Apple TV+’s parodic musical series “Schmigadoon” is getting a second season. After Melissa Gimble (Cecily Strong) and Josh Skinner (Keegan-Michael Key) got caught up in the wondrous musical world of Schmigadoon (adapted from the classic movie musical “Brigadoon”) in the first season, a different challenge awaits them in the new episodes. They end up in Schmicago!
Schmigadoon Season 2: Start Date
On April 7, 2023, the second season of “Schmigadoon!” will be released on Apple TV+. Once again, you can expect six new episodes, which will be released weekly on the streaming service.
Schmigadoon Season 2: Trailer
Exactly one month before the start of season 2 of “Schmigadoon!”, Apple TV+ released a first trailer for the new musical adventure. But instead of cheerful warbling, the new season strikes significantly darker tones. In the short clip, we get a first impression of the partly very melancholy songs.
Schmigadoon Season 2: Storyline
Season 1 of “Schmigadoon” was a tribute to the musicals of the 1940s. In season 2, the comedy series now deals with the musicals of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Of course, since Melissa and Josh end up in Schmicago, the 1975 musical “Chicago” will be a major source of inspiration for the new episodes. Other musicals that will be part of season 2 are the musicals “Sweeney Todd” and “Cabaret”.
Schmigadoon Season 2: Cast and Production
In addition to Cecily Strong as Melissa, Keegan-Michael Key as Josh and Dove Cameron, expect many new and old actors and actresses. Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Patrick Page (“The Gilded Age”) join the cast.
Rejoining the cast will be Ariana DeBose, Martin Short, Jaime Camil, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Ann Harada, Jane Krakowski and Aaron Tveit. Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio are behind the series.
