Second Semester of "Teachers" Season Two Starts
Tuesday, November 7th at 10pm ET/PT
New York, NY – August 10, 2017 – School is back in session this fall! Don't be late for class on Tuesday, November 7th at 10pm ET/PT, when TV Land's critical darling "Teachers" returns for the second half of season two. The first 10 episodes of the Grade-A comedy's second season, which The Hollywood Reporter hailed as "stronger and funnier than ever," aired earlier this year and hit multiple series high ratings.
"After an amazing ratings performance last season, we are so excited to share the rest of the season with the fans," said Frank Tanki, General Manager of TV Land and CMT. "With season three already picked up, 'Teachers' is one of the core components of our brand, generating love from fans and critics alike."
"Teachers" revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all. The series is created by and stars the improv group The Katydids – Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O'Brien and Kathryn Renée Thomas. The second part of season two will see Ms. Bennigan (O'Brien) keep naively pursuing Hot Dad (guest star Ryan Caltagirone), Ms. Watson (Lambert) in an unexpected relationship, Mrs. Adler (Thomas) and Ms. Feldman (Freedman) dealing with a "serial pooper" around the school, Ms. Snap (Colloton) finding the school's forgotten library, Ms. Cannon (Barlow) discovering an artistic prodigy, and even an entire episode taking place in the 1940s. "Teachers" has already been renewed for a 20-episode third season to premiere in 2018.
Along with The Katydids, showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel ("Key and Peele") executive produce the series. Matt Miller, Cap Gun Collective and Alison Brie are also executive producers.
