‘Abbott Elementary’ Cast Teases ‘Great New Characters’ in ‘Transformative’ Season 3 (Exclusive)

It’s a stylish night for the cast of Abbott Elementary! The stars of ABC’s hit comedy series hit the red carpet of the 81st Golden Globe Awards in style, ready to celebrate whatever the night will bring as they gear up for the premiere of their show’s third season.

​​​​​​Despite fewer nominations than they welcomed for their freshman season, the show’s cast returns to compete for two awards, including one of the night’s biggest prizes: Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

Creator, writer, executive producer and star Quinta Brunson — who won her first-ever Golden Globe last year — is up for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV series again, going up against Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Ayo Edebiri (The Bear), Elle Fanning (The Great), Selena Gomez (Only Murders in the Building), and Natasha Lyonne (Poker Face).

But the star didn’t seem too anxious on the red carpet! Brunson graced Sunday’s awards show in a silver, custom Balmain dress, complete with a slick ‘do with a pin-straight middle part, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Jimmy Choo strappy heels.

Chris Perfetti donned a white, pinstripe suit with a bold, black flower pinned to his lapel. The actor quipped to ET’s Kevin Frazier that the look was “casual,” similar to what he wore while on the picket line during the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

“I did dress like this on the picket line — this is actually sort of dressing casual for me,” he joked.

Looking stunning alongside him in a silver Alin le’ Kal dress and long black gloves with Levian Jewelry and Neil Lane Couture accessorize, Lisa Ann Walter joked that her look took a team of at least “10 people.”

“Chris has been answering my phone for me! Little known fact about wearing gloves; it looks elegant and great [but] you can’t be on your phone,” she added.

While the pair couldn’t give away too many details on Abbott Elementary‘s upcoming third season, they gave ET enough to ensure that fans will be wanting more by the season’s Feb. 7 premiere date.

“I will tell you this, the premiere episode of season 3 is so chock full of new, exciting stuff that you are not expecting that,” Walter shared. “I can’t even, we’re not allowed to say it obviously. But all I can say is stay tuned. It’s a lot.”

“People change,” Perfetti added, being reassuring that “we’re not gonna change that much.”

The duo also shared that season 3 will introduce “so many great characters” thanks to guest stars’ appearances.
