Abbott Elementary is not the only TV series to have recently received a renewal.

Horror series Goosebumps was one, and its second season will be an anthology, introducing an entirely new cast and plots to its spooky world, based on the classic books by R.L. Stine.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, from the book series by Rick Riordan, was another; the second season will adapt the second book, The Sea of Monsters, which sees the titular son of Poseidon attempt to rescue the satyr Grover from a cyclops.

Riordan recently revealed that he'd started writing episodes for season two before its official renewal.

Abbott Elementary airs on ABC in the US, and is available on Disney+ in the UK.
