Just a few days after returning to ABC for its third season, Abbott Elementary will officially be back in session for another school year! The hit ABC comedy series has been renewed for another chapter following the long-awaited Season 3 premiere.

Instead of simply releasing a statement announcing the show’s renewal, ABC found a fun way to share the happy news with the fans. William Stanford Davis aka Mr. Johnson tuned in during Disney’s Television Critics Association Press Tour to confirm that Abbott Elementary will be back for Season 4.

He’s expected to return for another year with the rest of the show’s main cast, including Quinta Brunson, Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, and Sheryl Lee Ralph. Season 3 premiere also featured several new supporting players, including Josh Segarra, Benjamin Norris, and Kimia Behpoornia.

Abbott Elementary star and creator Quinta Brunson recently addressed the show’s future in an interview with Business Insider and said that its success is her biggest reward.

“That’s what I would say the dream is when you’re making something. For it to find an audience that’s strong enough for you to keep making more of your show, and they actually want to see it. I’ll never forget how amazing that is for us as a cast and crew and writers,” said Brunson.
