Class in Session This Summer on TV Land with Season 3 of Teachers; The CW Renews 10 Series for 2018-19

Teachers

Fillmore Elementary educators are back in session with their hilarious antics when Season three of Teachers premieres Tuesday, June 5 at 10:30pm ET/PT on TV Land, following the season five premiere of Younger. After a much needed long recess, the leaders of the playground are back and ready to conquer a new school year. Last season, Variety hailed the cast, stating, "in terms of acing the midterm, the Katydids have indeed done it," while Bustle said "the female-driven sitcom is hilarious, insightful, and totally cute." The first-look teaser shows the Fillmore Elementary heroines fighting the spread of the vicious and highly contagious lice epidemic. The Teachers are put to the test when the dreaded curse of creepy crawlers enters the classroom, and the question remains - who will make it out alive?

Teachers revolves around a group of elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds of America's youth, but don't have their own lives together at all. The series is created by and stars the improv group The Katydids - Caitlin Barlow (Ms. Cannon), Katy Colloton (Ms. Snap), Cate Freedman (Ms. Feldman), Kate Lambert (Ms. Watson), Katie O'Brien (Ms. Bennigan) and Kathryn Renée Thomas (Mrs. Adler). Along with The Katydids, showrunner Ian Roberts executive produce the series. Matt Miller, Alex Fendrich and Matt Abramson are also executive producers.
