After the lighthearted musicals of the first season of Schmigadoon!, fans of the Apple TV+ series will need to adjust for darker and sexier fare in season two. The first trailer shows the upcoming episodes will be set in a new town, where everyone lives in a musical from the 1960s or 1970s.
Watch the just-released Schmigadoon! season two trailer to see what’s coming to Apple TV+ in April.
Schmigadoon! season 2 sings and dances through Schmicago
The first season of the Emmy-winning comedy tells the story of Josh (played by Keegan-Michael Key) and Melissa (Cecily Strong), a couple who stumble into a magical town where everyone lives by the rules of classic musicals. The series served up a delightful mix of homage and parody of the great musicals of the ’40s and ’50s, including (of course) Brigadoon but also Oklahoma!, The Music Man and many more.
In season two of Schmigadoon!, the couple travels to Schmicago, a reimagined world of 1960s and 1970s musicals.
