Apple has renewed Apple TV+ animated series "Central Park" for a third season ahead of the June premiere of the show's second season.
In addition to announcing the renewal of the series, Apple also gave a first look at the upcoming second season of the show. In the first look, Helen, voiced by Daveed Diggs, raps about her love for her hometown in a song called "Weehawken Rap."
"In season two of "Central Park," the Tillerman family continues to navigate living in and caring for the world's most famous park. Molly experiences the trials and tribulations of adolescence, Cole is challenged by a truly embarrassing moment at school, Paige continues to chase down the mayor's corruption story, and Owen juggles managing the park, his staff and his family all with a smile on his face. Meanwhile, Bitsy inches ever closer to her sinister goal of claiming Central Park as her own; with Helen by her side, eternally wondering whether she's made it into Bitsy's will. Every step of the way, we are guided along by our friendly, fumbling, fiddler narrator, Birdie."
The first three episodes of season two of "Central Park" are set to debut on the Apple streaming platform on Friday, June 25. New episodes will premiere weekly every Friday after that.
According to show creator Loren Bouchard, the second and third seasons of "Central Park" will bring 29 more episodes of the series "and something like 115 new songs."
Seasons 2 and 3 of Central Park mean 29 more episodes, and something like 115 new songs. 115! The people who make this show dazzle me with their talent and ambition and will. Apple and 20th have shown their will too. I'm honored to be a part of something with this much chutzpah.— loren bouchard (@lorenbouchard) March 10, 2021
