We aren’t talking here about the A.P. Bio test. “We are not geeks”. We are discussing the upcoming season 3 of A+ comedy show A.P. Bio. So trailers are out and the audience is loving it. But there is a slight change. No not any starcast thing. It’s the streaming house.
Earlier it was streamed on Hulu but now it’s being showcased on Peacock Originals. What a surprise. And this is not because NBC or Hulu was unhappy with the results but just that, hey wait! Why don’t you learn the reason from Howerton himself? “This has always been misrepresented a little bit,” Howerton says.
“The show did OK on NBC but not great. And certainly not good enough for them to pick it up. But it was always my understanding that the show kind of crushed it on Hulu. Then Hulu wasn’t doing work with NBC Universal anymore. So we had this large streaming audience but nowhere to put the show. Then when Peacock decided to do Peacock Originals, they picked us up really quickly.”

A.P. Bio Season 1 Review
Most of it’s silly and well beyond believability, even for a sitcom, but what matters most is that A.P. Bio is funny. The show may play things a touch-safe, however, it has tons of potential to be a breakout hit because the show finds its footing. Overall, “A.P. Bio” deserves an A for effort.
A.P. Bio Season 2 Review
A.P. Bio remains one among the flat-out funniest shows on television. If you liked the primary round, you’ll enjoy Season 2. This is a much different show tonally than its first go-around. Perhaps losing its edge is that the right move and therefore the deep cast of characters is quite up for the added spotlight.
Word of mouth from the main cast
In an interview with ‘Den of Geek‘ this is what some main cast members had to say about their character.
For instance – “My favorite part of Durbin is how he reacts with everyone around him,” Oswalt says. “The three teachers played by Jean, Mary, and Lyric treat him like a little brother that they know they can kind of tease and also get away with it. So they know just where to push him. It’s a high school that I am running as a principal but I am basically a student that is trying to fit in with other cliques. The way they write it is great.”
Paula Pell – “(She was) definitely part of a carnival of some sort,” Pell says. “Helen was definitely in a tent. Every few years they changed what the attraction was like – ‘she’s got three boobs!’ Therefore I do feel that Helen has a lot of white-knuckling positivity with some rage underneath it.”
