Schmigadoon! is an American musical comedy television series developed by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, with all songs written by Paul, who also serves as showrunner. The show has been renewed for a second season. The show launched on Apple TV+ on July 16, 2021.
Schmigadoon! Season 1 was a parody and homage to Golden Age musicals from the 1940s and 1950s. It is directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, with choreography by Christopher Gattelli. Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key lead the ensemble cast.
In season 2, Josh and Melissa will discover themselves in Chicago, a realm based on the 1960s and 1970s musicals.
Schmigadoon Season 2: Plot
The series' premise is likely to be taken up now, Schmigadoon! Season 1 concluded with Episode 6, How We Change, which was released on August 13, 2021.
The episode was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. According to the official synopsis, “With the election looming, Mildred aggressively cranks up her campaign; Josh and Melissa confront their genuine love for one other.”
We've highlighted some major elements from the Season 1 finale episode, in which Josh seeks down Carson, and the two discuss how successful relationships require effort. Emma appears and offers that she and Carson cross the bridge to start a new life with Josh.
Lopez rescues Melissa and confesses that he favors her above the Countess, but she wants to keep her connection with Josh.
Schmigadoon Season 2: Cast
Chicago will focus on the intricacies of '60s and '70s musicals, as opposed to the '30s and '40s inspirations that defined season 1. The series idea comes from screenwriters Cinco Paul and Ken Dario, who has previously worked with animation in franchises like Despicable Me. Lorne Michaels of Saturday Night Live serves as executive producer.
Interestingly, even though Melissa and Josh will find themselves in a new town mirroring the world of the musical Chicago, the same supporting cast from season 1 is set to return, including West Side Story's Ariana DeBose, Dove Cameron, Jaime Camil, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Ann Harada, Jane Krakowski, Martin Short, and Aaron Tveit.
Regrettably, neither Fred Armisen nor Liam Quiring-Nkindi was named as returning cast members.
