“This aspirational comeback story is filled with heart and friendship, perfectly blended with catchy-songs and humor, and delivered by an exceptionally versatile cast.”

“We look forward to following this group’s journey as they continue to hit just the right notes.”

The series was one of few scripted originals on Peacock to land a renewal, following the cancellations of Brave New World, The Lost Symbol, and Punky Brewster.

Several Peacock series are still awaiting word on their futures, including The Girl in the Woods, Bel-Air, MacGruber, Saved by the Bell, and Bust Down.
