  • by

After the lighthearted musicals of Schmigadoon! season 1, fans will need to adjust for darker and sexier fare in season 2. The trailer for the upcoming episodes will be set in a new town where everyone lives in a musical from the 1960s or 1970s.

Watch the just-released trailer to see what’s coming to Apple TV+ in April.

Schmigadoon! season 2 sings and dances through Schmicago

The first season of the Emmy-winning comedy tells the story of Josh (Keegan-Michael Key) and Melissa (Cecily Strong) who stumble into a magical town where everyone lives by the rules of classic musicals. It is a delightful mix of homage and parody of the great musicals of the ’30s and ’40s, including (of course) Brigadoon but also Oklahoma!, The Music Man and many more.

In season two of Schmigadoon!, the couple travels to Schmicago, a reimagined world of 1960s and 1970s musicals.

Watch the just-released trailer for a taste of the fun:
