A.P. Bio Moves To NBC Peacock For Its Season 3, Watch The First Teaser Here
Another semester? Yep, A.P. Bio is coming back for a season 3. After facing the ax at NBC last May, the network’s new streaming service picked up the high school comedy for another run. Albeit this time, the Mark O’Brien show is going to have a back-to-back web premiere instead of weekly TV episodes. A.P. Bio’s new home, NBC Peacock launched today bringing along a bunch of new teasers for the original content it will soon stream. These included the teasers for the remakes of ‘Saved By The Bell’ and ‘Punky Brewsters’, and also the trailers of new dramas, ‘Intelligence’, ‘Angelyne’, and ‘The Capture’. But while all the new shows were being teased, NBC Peacock also did A.P. Bio fans a favor by glimpsing the first-look into the Glenn Howerton led series’ Season 3.
Cancellation And Revival
NBC had pulled the plug off A.P. Bio after its sophomore run in May 2019. The show had averaged around 0.5 demo rating, which prompted NBC to cancel it despite being a fan-darling. But school wasn’t out after all. After an outpour of anger from ardent viewers, NBC reconsidered the fate of A.P. Bio, picking it up for a season 3 on its new streaming service, NBC Peacock. NBC set A.P. Bio as the first scripted original for its new digital platform, after announcing that it was adding hits like The Office and Parks and Recreations to its streaming library.
A.P. Bio stars It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia vet Glenn Howerton as Dr. Jack Carson Griffin, a dishonored Harvard Philosophy professor who enlists bright high-school students at his new teaching job to avenge his rivals.

The third season will feature the return of all of the show’s original cast members, along with a few new additions. The show was tentatively set for a 2020 release, but with the COVID-19 outbreak, there are chances NBC Peacock may push it back into 2021. Peacock chairman Matt Strauss is optimistic about launching a few originals this July, but he hasn’t spoken yet on the matter of A.P. Bio season 3.
