Film & TV News Apple's Schmigadoon! to Return for 2nd Season, Re-Christened Schmicago

Following a debut season parodying Golden Age musicals, the new episodes will turn to the musicals of the '60s and '70s.

Schmigadoon and Chicago

Apple's Schmigadoon! will return for a second season, this time lampooning the musicals of the '60s and '70s in a season newly christened Schmicago. Timing for the new season's premiere has not yet been announced.

Set to return from the first season are stars Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key, alongside Oscar winner and 2022 Tony Awards host Ariana DeBose, Dove Cameron, Jaime Camil, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Ann Harada, Jane Krakowski, Martin Short, and Aaron Tveit. Newly joining for the second season are Tituss Burgess and Patrick Page.

Schmigadoon starred Strong and Key as a traveling couple who cross a bridge and find themselves trapped in a magical town that appears out of nowhere. Sound familiar? Created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, the series parodied the Golden Age of musicals, including Brigadoon, Carousel, The Music Man, and more.

Produced by Broadway Video and Universal Television, Schmidagoon! is led by showrunner Paul, who also provides the series' original songs. Robert Luketic directs and co-executive produces with Micah Frank, with Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer as executive producers. Strong and Caroline Maroney serve as producers. The entire first season can be streamed on Apple TV+.
