Brush up your Fosse and grab the nearest orphan, because Schmigadoon season 2 is diving into the world of '60s and '70s Broadway: Schmicago. The musical theatre series is back on Apple TV+, with the latest season set to premiere with two episodes April 5. Watch the cast and creator of Schmigadoon give a special preview of the upcoming episodes above.
Schmigadoon's first season was set in the realm of Golden Age musicals, following two modern-day New Yorkers as they stumble upon a Brigadoon-like fantasy world filled with singing carnival barkers, hard-edged teachers with hearts of gold, and so, so many townspeople. In season 2, our New Yorkers attempt to rekindle the past and find their way back to Schmigadoon, only to find them in a new, darker setting: Schmicago.
Featured in the cast are such stage favorites as Ariana DeBose, Kristin Chenoweth, Aaron Tveit, Jaime Camil, Martin Short, Dove Cameron, Alan Cumming, Ann Harada, and Jane Krakowski, all returning from the series' first season. Joining the group for the second outing are Broadway alum Tituss Burgess and Patrick Page. Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key are also both back to lead the new episodes.
The first season of Schmigadoon! earned a loyal following of theatre fans and an Emmy Award.
