NBC‘s little-sitcom-that-could A.P. Bio is only one month away before its second-season premiere, after leaving viewers wondering what the future would hold for anti-teacher extraordinaire Jack Griffin (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton). With his plan to ruin Miles (Tom Bennett) having completely fallen apart after a season finale Karmic boomerang from earlier in the season (we still love you, Allisyn Ashley Arm‘s Heather!), what’s left for Jack to do to escape the clutches of Toledo, Ohio…Whitlock High…and Principal Durbin (Happy!‘s Patton Oswalt).
The only thing that he can do, of course: take a deep-dive into Toledo, Ohio, culture, write a book on the experience, and not let the door hit him on the way out of town–and still, not a single lesson of Advanced Placement Biology will be taught…but that doesn’t mean there still won’t be some lessons to be learned.
Here’s a look behind-the-scenes at what fans can expect when NBC’s A.P. Bio returns on Thursday, March 7 at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT.
When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement Biology teacher. As he comes crashing into Whitlock High School, Jack makes it absolutely clear he will not be teaching any biology.
Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids for his own benefit. Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.
