A.P. Bio Cancellation Reversed By NBC, Season 3 Officially Happening

'A.P. Bio' to Return for Season 3 on NBCUniversal's Streaming Service

'A.P. Bio' to Return for Season 3 on NBCUniversal's Streaming Service

In another case of a streaming service saving a canceled broadcast series, NBCUniversal's upcoming, as-yet-untitled, streaming service will be bringing the recently canceled NBC comedy A.P. Bio back for a third season, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Fan interest certainly had to help in some way, with A.P. Bio's audience being one of the more vocal fanbases after the cancellation bloodbath this spring. The show starred It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Glenn Howerton as a disgraced Harvard philosophy professor-turned-high school A.P. biology teacher, and tracked the lengths he went to in order to avoid teaching biology, opting to use his smart students to get revenge on a rival professor instead.

"I'm so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the fans", said showrunner O'Brien.

Interestingly enough, this was not the first indication that A.P. Bio would be coming back to television in some way.

O'Brien exec produces the series along with Lorne Michaels, Seth Meyers, Mike Shoemaker and Andrew Singer.

Though the comedy had a small-but-passionate following of fans who pushed for the show's rescue after its cancellation, the series never broke through with big ratings.

Nearly two full months after the series was originally canceled by NBC, THR is reporting that "A.P. Bio" has been revived for another season.

O'Brien originally spearheaded a #SaveAPBio campaign on Twitter shortly after the show was canceled in May, as star Patton Oswalt encouraged fans to binge the series on Hulu in hopes of a revival.

Right now, we still don't know how many episodes season 3 has been renewed for or whether it will launch when the NBCUniversal streaming service does or if it will launch at a later date.
