The Apple TV+ series Schmigadoon has been renewed for a second season and nearly all of the cast members are confirmed to return!

For those who don’t know, the first season followed a couple (Keegan-Michael Key and Cecily Strong) on a backpacking trip designed to reinvigorate their relationship when they discover a magical town in which everyone is living in a studio musical from the 1940s. They then discover that they can’t leave until they find “true love.”

The second season will follow the couple in Schmicago, the world of 60’s and 70’s musicals.

The first season was inspired by musicals like The Music Man, Carousel, and Oklahoma, while the second season sounds like it might be inspired by shows like Chicago and Cabaret.

There are 11 cast members confirmed to return and one previous series regular appears to be leaving. Two new stars are also joining for season two!

The Tonys state: “If the Tony Awards Nominating Committee has determined that if there is only one nominee in a category listed, such category shall be submitted to the Tony Voters which may, by the affirmative vote of sixty (60%) percent of the total ballots cast, grant an Award in that category.”

During his acceptance speech, Aaron teared up while giving some touching words.

“We are so privileged to get to do this, to be on Broadway, to have a life in the theater,” Aaron said. “Let’s continue to strive to tell the stories that represent the many and not the few, by the many and not the few, for the many and not the few. Because what we do changes people’s lives. It changes people’s minds. It change’s people’s hearts. We can change the world with this. Let’s not forget that. This means more to me than I can ever say.”

Aaron was joined at the show by his longtime girlfriend Ericka Hunter, who also is in the Moulin Rouge cast.

FYI: Aaron is wearing The Row.
