The first five episodes of the show have already dropped on Apple TV+, and with season 1 reaching its end, fans are eager to know what’s in store for season 2.
‘SCHMIGADOON!’ WAS A HIT LONG BEFORE
After a vending machine fails and offers them all of the sweets inside, their romance starts. However, their love becomes stale with time, and they embark on a retreat to rekindle their passion. This is where they find the beautiful village of Schmigadoon. As picturesque as the village looks, everyone in this surreal village acts as though they’re in a 1940s studio musical. Melissa and Josh eventually discover that they are trapped in Schmigadoon and are unable to leave the mystery town of 167 residents unless they find true love — which they believed they had already found.
While the series was released only recently, showrunners Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul, who also wrote the animated movie ‘Despicable Me’, came up with the idea 25 years ago. In an interview with NPR’s Scott Simon, Cinco expressed that the idea came to him while he was watching the movie ‘American Werewolf in London’.
“The two guys are backpacking through the countryside. And as I was watching it, I thought, oh, the opening to this is just like the opening of Brigadoon. And I thought, wait, what if two modern guys stumbled on a musical instead of a werewolf?”said the creator.
However, Paul didn’t know what to do with it, so he filed it away for years until, as he best described in his own words, “I was kind of done with animation, ready to try live-action TV”. So, what are the ‘Schmigadoon!’ Season 2 details? Has ‘Schmigadoon!’ been cancelled or renewed?

With an approval rating of 87% and an average rating of 7.37/10 on Rotten Tomatoes, fans are assuming that there will be a second instalment.
Meanwhile, fans are constantly tweeting and tagging the showrunners hoping that they would get a response really soon. “Schmigadoon better have a season 2 or I WILL riot. Just saying”, shared a fan on Twitter.
Another tweet read, “Can schmigadoon fit their entire ending within 20-30 mins? we definitely need an hour-long finale- or at least a season 2! HEHE”.
