After a little over a year, Apple TV+ has solidified itself as a streaming service with a wealth of quality original films and TV series. Thanks to the success of shows like Servant and Ted Lasso paired with films like Wolfwalkers and Palmer, Apple is incessantly bolstering its catalog. However, one of the most revered programs coming from Apple TV+ is the animated musical series Central Park. With a stacked ensemble voice cast and a litany of guest songwriters and voice actors, the series earned a bevy of awards nominations after season one. Now, according to Deadline, Central Park will get a third season. Season two will premiere on the streaming service on June 25th.
Central Parks hails from Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard, Nora Smith, and Josh Gad. The series revolves around a family living in Central Park in New York City who must save it from a greedy land developer. Moreover, the show stars Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Tituss Burgess, and Stanley Tucci. However, Bell’s character, a mixed-race teenager named Molly, will be voiced by Emmy Raver-Lampman for the next two seasons with Bell staying on in a mystery role.
The animated comedy features a slew of original music interweaved in each episode’s plot thread. These songs such as “Own It” and “Imperfectly Perfect” benefit from being penned by the likes of Sara Bareilles, Cyndi Lauper, Alan Menken, and Darren Criss. In addition to the series regulars, Central Park features guest appearances Stephanie Beatriz, Fred Armisen, Christopher Jackson, and Andrew Rannells as well.
In reaction to the season three renewal news, Bouchard took to Twitter to express his excitement to continue the series.
“Seasons 2 and 3 of Central Park mean twenty-nine more episodes and something like a hundred and fifteen new songs. A hundred and fifteen!” wrote Bouchard. “The people who make this show dazzle me with their talent and ambition and sheer will. And Apple and 20th have shown their will too! I’m honored to be a part of something with this much chutzpah.”
