Apple TV Cancels “Schmigadoon” After 2 Praised Seasons, Show’s Creator Reveals Season 3 is Written


“Schmigadoon” has sung its last song, at least on Apple TV.

Show creator Cinco Paul announced on Instagram that Apple has cancelled the show after two seasons. “Schmigadoon” starred Cecily Strong and Keenan Michael Key as a couple lost in a fantasy world of Broadway musicals. A ton of Broadway and New York actors had recurring roles including Kristen Chenoweth and Titus Burgess.

The show won one Emmy award in its first season, had several nominations over its two runs. It was clever and smart, so of course, it’s gone.
