AP Bio season 3: Glenn Howerton series revived for new streaming service

'A.P. Bio' to Return for Season 3 on NBCUniversal's Streaming Service

'A.P. Bio' to Return for Season 3 on NBCUniversal's Streaming Service

Originally premiering in 2018, A.P. Bio followed newly-fired philosophy professor, Jack (Howerton), who loses out on a dream job and is forced to return to his hometown.

Interestingly enough, this was not the first indication that A.P. Bio would be coming back to television in some way.

The series will serve as NBC's first scripted comedy for its now unnamed streaming service, according to THR. This new season means stars Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Patton Oswalt (Happy!), and Paula Pell (Wine Country) will be returning for the series, too.

Mary Sohn, Lyric Lewis, Jean Villepique, Jacob McCarthy, and Tom Bennett also star in the comedy, while Seth Meyers and Lorne Michaels executive produce with Shoemaker. The show lasted for two seasons and aired what was meant to be its final episodes last month, but thankfully, NBC has changed its mind about cancellation.

NBCU's streaming service is expected to launch in 2020, and not many specifics are known yet about what other programming it will carry beyond today's announcement of the A.P. Bio renewal and the previously announced limited series Angelyne, starring Emmy Rossum.

However, the show's secret weapon is the ensemble cast that brings the students to life.

NBC Universal will strike new deals with the cast since all their options expired in June when the last episode aired.

While "A.P. Bio" was a middling performer in the ratings, it is wholly owned and produced within the company (a key factor for renewing TV shows these days).

Showrunner Mike O'Brien said in a statement, "I'm so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the fans". It would be a shame if few people subscribed and the show ended again because of it.
