Peacock announced that the fourth season of “A.P. Bio,” starring Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt, will premiere on Sept. 2. The streamer also released a trailer for the new season, which you can watch below.
In the trailer, Jack (Howerton) is telling his students they need to get this “train back on track,” as new rules have interfered with his way of teaching. Students are wearing uniforms and Jack fears they will start to act and think like a cult member.
“Uniforms promote conformity, you’re gonna turn these kids into mindless zombies, like a cult,” he says to Oswalt’s Principal Griffin.
The trailer also shows a tornado forcing the students and faculty to stay locked down with one another and the entrance of John Griffin (Bruce Campbell), Jack’s father who he hasn’t seen in years but who comes down to the school looking for his son, only to meet his students first.
Along with Howerton and Oswalt, the cast includes Mary Sohn, Lyric Lewis, Jean Villepique and Paula Pell.
“A.P. Bio” was created by Mike O’Brien, who writes and executive produces. Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, Broadway Video and Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions.
