When we last left the faculty of Abbott in the season 2 finale, Ava (Janelle James) had decided to attend night school while Janine (Quinta Brunson) and Gregory (Tyler James Williams) had decided to remain friends, despite their newly discovered feelings for one another. No spoilers, but season 3 is picking up where we left off, with an awkward relationship between Jannine and Gregory and Ava bringing her new, Harvard-inspired style to the school. 

The usual faces are back this season, with Lisa Ann Walter and William Stanford Davis also back as Mellissa and Mr. Johnson. Meanwhile, Kimia Behpoornia and Benjamin Norris have joined the cast as school district representatives.
