Created by Quinta Brunson, ‘Abbott Elementary‘ is a mockumentary series that follows a group of dedicated and passionate teachers working in one of the worst Philadelphia schools to help their students succeed in life. Even though the odds are not in their favor, these determined teachers love what they do and do their best to give the students the education they deserve.

Originally released in December 2021 on ABC, the inaugural season of the sitcom opened to much appreciation and love from fans and critics. This allowed the series to garner a significant amount of viewership as it gained fans from different parts of the world. So, if you are one of the fans who are eager to learn about a potential second round of the mockumentary series, we have got all the details!

Abbott Elementary Season 2 Release Date

‘Abbott Elementary’ season 1 released on December 7, 2021, on ABC, with the season finale airing on April 12, 2022. The debut season consists of thirteen episodes that run for around 22 minutes each.

As for the sophomore installment of the series, here is what we can tell you. Fans must be thrilled to know that ABC officially announced the renewal of the sitcom for a second season in March 2022. When it comes to the production of season 2, the cast and crew members are likely to get back to work soon and commence filming in a few months’ time. Suppose the production gets underway by the end of Summer 2022, we can expect ‘Abbott Elementary’ season 2 to release sometime in Q4 2022 or Q1 2023. 

Abbott Elementary Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?

Season 1 features Quinta Brunson (Janine Teagues), Tyler James Williams (Gregory Eddie), Janelle James (Ava Coleman), Lisa Ann Walter (Melissa Schemmenti), Chris Perfetti (Jacob Hill), and Sheryl Lee Ralph (Barbara Howard). All these actors and actresses play the role of some central characters, which is the reason why all of them are most likely to reprise their respective roles in the second round. 

The other cast members who might return are William Stanford Davis (Mr. Johnson), Reginald C. Hayes (Superintendent Collins), Zack Fox (Tariq), Camden Brooks (Barbara’s student), Iyana Halley (Taylor Howard), and Camden Coley (Vick). Apart from that, we should not rule out the possibility of getting to see some fresh faces as new characters may get introduced to keep the narrative interesting and moving forward.

Abbott Elementary Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?

In the first season of ‘Abbott Elementary,’ themes such as dedication, inequality, determination, and passion are highlighted throughout the narrative. It gives a detailed and humorous account of how the educational sector in Philadelphia and other regions of the United States is. As the school faces several issues such as little or no funding, not enough staff members, insufficient free time, and overpopulated students, we see different teachers trying their best to do what’s necessary for their students.

However, the characters deal with their own personal issues as well. In the season finale, during Abbott’s annual zoo field trip, Tariq reveals that he is offered a new job in New York. This announcement puts the relationship between Tariq and Janine in question as the latter has to make a big choice. After much consideration, Janine chooses Abbott and herself, and decides to break up with him. Moreover, Barbara’s daughter Taylor gets more and more friendly with Gregory, especially in the season finale.

So, the second installment of the sitcom is likely to start from where the first season ended. We might get to see Janine and Gregory finally getting together, following the former’s breakup with Tariq. In addition to that, we are likely to see the school go through another set of ups and downs as the teachers find ways to help the students out.

Who Is Hannah in Night Sky? Why Does Cornelius Call Her an Apostate?

Published

Portrayed by Sonya Walger, Hannah is one of the most important supporting characters in Amazon Prime Video’s ‘Night Sky,’ Even though she is introduced in episode 7, titled ‘Lake Diving,’ she becomes a crucial part of the plot by the time the first season concludes. After escaping from the most secretive and dangerous cult in the world, Jude comes to Farnsworth, Illinois, in search of his father, Gabriel. He later discovers that a truck driver dropped Gabriel off at a location in Enfield, Michigan. Jude travels there with Irene and Denise and discovers that it’s a bed and breakfast establishment. Its owner is Hannah. Here is everything you need to know about her. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Who Is Hannah?

Hannah introduces herself as the owner of the bed and breakfast establishment. She informs Jude and the others that Gabriel came there 15 years earlier. He worked as a handyman, and they had a relationship, but ultimately, he moved on. She seems to be still bitter about it. However, it soon becomes apparent that she is not exactly what she claims to be. Hidden somewhere in the hotel, a man named Paul is keeping surveillance on all the guests.

Hannah later has a long conversation with Jude about Gabriel and lets him stay in the same room his father once occupied. There, Jude finds the codes to his father’s possible location in a copy of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo.’ The following morning, when Jude and the others depart, Paul follows them.

The season finale reveals that Hannah used to be part of the cult just like Jude and Gabriel. And now, she heads an organization that fights the cult. They don’t interfere when Cornelius threatens the Yorks and Jude. However, after he is subdued and placed in the van that Stella and Toni took from Nick, Hannah and her people intercept them on the road. Stella tells Hannah that she is no longer a guardian of the cult before she and Toni are taken away. When Hannah speaks to Cornelius, it becomes apparent that they know each other. Cornelius is fanatically devoted to the cult. Even after being captured by the enemy, he is outwardly defiant. However, his eyes give away that he is terrified.

Why Does Cornelius Call Hannah an Apostate?

From the interaction between Hannah and Cornelius and the fact that Gabriel sought her out, we can glean that Hannah left the cult before Gabriel. In the following years, she presumably set up a resistance against the most powerful shadowy organization in the world. She likely knew that Gabriel had left the codes to his location in his room and ensured that Jude would find it. She and Gabriel did probably have a relationship, and she just might be bitter that it ended. But she likely omitted its context. It’s possible that Gabriel was part of her organization before his departure and played a pivotal role in the fight against the cult. However, he has since moved on. For Hannah, the fight continues.

As mentioned above, Cornelius is fanatically devoted to the cult. The phrase “apostate” refers to a person who has renounced their religion. In Hannah’s case, she has left the cult. This is why Hannah — along with Jude, Gabriel, and now Stella — is an apostate to Cornelius and all other active cult members.

Where is Keith Laborde Now?

Published

twins karen and sharon

Vincent Simmons was just 25 when he was sentenced to 100 years in prison after being accused of violently raping Karen and Sharon Sanders — a set of 14-year-old twins — a crime he maintains he never committed. However, as explored in ’48 Hours: Please Don’t Tell,’ Karen and Sharon Sanders insist he’s guilty despite recently agreeing to drop the charges against him and the supposed odd involvement of Keith Laborde. So now, if you wish to find out more about the latter, especially the details of his relationship with the sisters as well as his possible current whereabouts, here’s all that we know.

Who is Keith Laborde?

At the time of the alleged incident on the evening of May 9, 1977, an 18-year-old reported Marine Corps officer Keith Laborde was with Karen and Sharon Sanders, who are his first cousins. He was driving them back home from his place when he picked up a hitchhiker from 7-11, as per their accounts, only for it to end up with him forced into the trunk of his vehicle at knifepoint. Like the girls, once they went to the authorities with this ordeal two weeks later, Keith insisted their assailant was a Black man, whom they all individually later identified as Vincent Simmons from a lineup.

With that said, though, one of their other cousins has since claimed that the trio lied at every step of the way, which is something Keith personally told her at a bar long after Vincent’s conviction. “He told me that he had consensual sex with one of the girls and locked the other in the trunk,” Dana Brouillette stated in a sworn affidavit. She later explained, “He had gone down Little California Road, and he locked Sharon in the trunk, and he said the sex between him and Karen was consensual. He said, but the other one was a little hellcat… [She] put the scratches on his neck.”

Dana actually believes Keith, Karen, and Sharon concocted the story of a Black man attacking them to justify the noticeable scratches, along with the state of their overall appearance that night. But Karen clarified the entire situation in an interview with CBS by stating that although she did engage in consensual sex with Keith, it was way before the summer of 1977. She was reportedly just a child back then, whereas he was a teenager, and they “experimented. But that has nothing to do with what Vincent did. That’s two separate incidents. That’s two separate things,” she said.

Where is Keith Laborde Now?

Despite the (seemingly unsupported) accusations against him, Keith Laborde has outrightly denied ever having sex with Karen, according to ’48 Hours.’ He told the production that they only “played around like children,” nothing less and nothing more, but yes, every part of it was consensual. Coming to his current standing, in his 60s, it appears as if the Louisiana native prefers to keep well away from the limelight these days because he purportedly has a family of his own.

Keith wholeheartedly maintains that Vincent is guilty, which is why when CNN approached him for an interview in 2020, he reportedly let his anger out in the form of profanities, threats, and racial slurs directed toward him. Keith concluded with, “This sh*t happened. It’s real. It happened. And I’m not dealing with this no more I’m not looking over my shoulder anymore… I had enough of this sh*t.”
