Now that Season 1 of the series is over, those fans are looking for more feel-good shows to watch while waiting for Abbott Elementary Season 2’s premiere.
Infusing the show with heart and humor seems to have worked, and now there are plenty of fans out there who are looking for more shows like it. Whether you want another workplace comedy or a TV show with optimistic characters just like Brunson’s Janine, this list will keep a smile on your face during the long wait for more episodes of Abbott Elementary.
Season 1 of Abbott Elementary is streaming on Hulu.
