With the resurgence of 1930s and 1940s-inspired musicals, such as The Return of Mary Poppins and the controversial crowd favorite musical La La Land, this is absolutely the right time to parody musicals.
Schmigadoon is a hysterical series that is jam-packed with real-life musical theater and comedic talent brought to life. The previous season received a good response from both audiences and critics. However, the question still stays: Will there be a season 2 of Schmigadoon? Here’s everything you need to know!
What’s the show Schmigadoon about?
Schmigadoon is a hysterical parody music series that stars Keegan Michael Key of Key and Peele and Cecily Strong of Saturday Night Live, who play a pair of New York City doctors, Josh and Melissa, on a trip to repair their fracturing marriage.
They wind up in the mystical, musical town of Schmigadoon, which is, of course, hilariously a direct parody of the Scottish town Brigadoon in the MGM musical of the same name, starring Cyd Charrise and Gene Kelly.
When Melissa and Josh find out they are only allowed to leave the town if they discover true love, the couple must look both within their marriage and beyond. To any surroundings and eligible singles, for their ultimate partners so that they can move on from this rhythmic nightmare once and for all.
Will there be a season 2 of Schmigadoon?
The uproarious musical parody series Schmigadoon has been renewed for a second season. Apple TV has renewed the show for season 2. Hence, we will get to see an overhaul of source material as well as the addition of a few new faces!
Apple TV Plus has renewed the Schmigadoon! series for a second season, only this time, it will be a parody of the hit musical Chicago. It is unclear if the show will change its name to Schmicago, but we will do so here just to enjoy the absolute brilliance that is this parody series.
When’s the release date for Schmigadoon season 2?
While a release date has not yet been announced, we anticipate filming for the next season will begin later this year. Viewers look forward to more of this delightful musical parody and the surprise continuation of Josh and Melissa’s journey. Season 2 might release next year.
What to expect from the Schmigadoon season 2 plot?
The finale of Schmigadoon! season 1 did not see Melissa and Josh run across the bridge. Though they found true love, their journey is not yet over.
We didn’t see them finally leave the town of Schmigadoon and return to their New York City medical lifestyles. This is the territory that season 2 will explore, but through the ’60s and ’70s lens of Chicago.
Josh’s newfound embrace of expression and communication through bursts of song may take center stage in season 2. In real life, the actors got pretty choked up rehearsing and shooting this scene, which warms our hearts and makes us even more excited to see what the performers can do with this material.
Since most of the original cast is returning, perhaps the town of Schmigadoon itself will transform into Schmicago, with the residents taking new forms as different characters whose purpose is to teach visitors important lessons about life and love.
