In May of last year, Apple launched the first season of what would become a critically-acclaimed animated musical comedy series called Central Park. And in November of 2020, the video streaming service officially renewed the show for a second season. And now there’s one more in the works.
Today, Apple TV+ officially announced that it has gone ahead and given Central Park an early series renewal for a third outing. This comes a few months before the second season of the animated musical comedy series is set to debut on June 25, 2021. After that, new episodes will premiere on the streaming service every Friday.
However, for folks who can’t wait until that date, Apple TV+ also released a peek at what’s in store for the second season. The short clip is called “Weekhawken Rap”, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. But, I won’t try to explain any of it. Just check it out for yourself:
The second season of Central Park will continue to show off a star-studded cast. That will include Josh Gad (Frozen), Leslie Odom Jr. (Murder on the Orient Express), Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting), Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision), Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada), and many, many more.
Here’s an official description of the upcoming second season:
In season two of ‘Central Park,’ the Tillerman family continues to navigate living in and caring for the world’s most famous park. Molly experiences the trials and tribulations of adolescence, Cole is challenged by a truly embarrassing moment at school, Paige continues to chase down the mayor’s corruption story, and Owen juggles managing the park, his staff and his family all with a smile on his face. Meanwhile, Bitsy inches ever closer to her sinister goal of claiming Central Park as her own; with Helen by her side, eternally wondering whether she’s made it into Bitsy’s will. Every step of the way, we are guided along by our friendly, fumbling, fiddler narrator, Birdie.
Josh Gad, Loren Bouchard, and Nora Smith co-executive produce and co-write the project. The entirety of the first season of Central Park is available now on Apple TV+, with the second season set to debut on June 25. No release date for the third season, of course.
