It seems the Peacock Network really wants to impress the College Board. NBC has renewed its AP Bio TV show for a second season. The mid-season replacement comedy has really struggled in the ratings. Perhaps it can get some tutoring during summer vacation.
An NBC workplace comedy, AP Bio stars Glenn Howerton, Patton Oswalt, Lyric Lewis, Mary Sohn, Jean Villepique, Tom Bennett, Paula Pell, Charlie McCrackin, Jacob McCarthy, Aparna Brielle, Nick Peine, Allisyn Ashley Arm, Eddie Leavy, Jacob Houston, Sari Arambulo, Tucker Albrizzi, and Spence Moore II. After being denied tenure at Harvard, award-winning philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Howerton) ends up back home in Toledo, Ohio. Now, he teaches Advanced Placement Biology at Whitlock High. Well, that’s what he’s been hired to do. Mostly though, he’s teaching his students how to do his dirty work, for him — which includes driving his professional rival insane.
AP Bio Renewed for Season Two on NBC
Although the network has not issued a press release, it confirmed the renewal on the official NBC Entertainment Twitter page. Check it out.

Well-written. Excellent acting. Great cast. Great idea. The AP Bio teacher turned into a softie too fast. He needs to maintain his character until the 4th or 5th season after he’s burned everybody around him.
I find this show to be one of the most entertaining shows on TV. The actors are so talented and the writing is the best. As someone who taught high school for 42 years (all at the same school) I can tell you that the students in A.P. Bio are not only funny but also spot on in their classroom banter. This is my favorite show and I hope it stays around along time. PS I am an adjunct professor of sociology and history (45 + years). I know what is going on in a classroom and so do the… Read more »
