Central Park Renewed for Season 3 Ahead of Season 2 Launch; America Ferrera Returns for Superstore Finale

Central Park

Apple TV+ announced that its critically acclaimed, hit animated musical comedy series Central Park has been renewed for a third season. From creator, writer and executive producer Loren Bouchard, Josh Gad and Nora Smith, the first three episodes of the second season of the Emmy and NAACP Image Award-nominated series will debut globally Friday, June 25 on Apple TV+, and new episodes will premiere weekly every Friday. Additionally, a first look at the second season of the Apple Original series, which boasts a star-studded voice cast that includes Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Kathryn Hahn, Tituss Burgess and Stanley Tucci, was revealed. 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.

In the first look at the second season, ‘Helen’ (voiced by Daveed Diggs) proclaims her love for her hometown in a special song called, "Weehawken Rap." The complete first season of Central Park is now streaming on Apple TV+. After premiering last May, The series is written and executive produced by Loren Bouchard, alongside Josh Gad and Nora Smith. Halsted Sullivan, Sanjay Shah and Janelle Momary-Neely also executive produce. The series is produced for Apple by 20th Television.
