Quinta Brunson recently stopped by “Good Morning America” (GMA) and talked about winning Emmys and Season 2 of “Abbott Elementary.”
Quinta won Emmys for Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series and Outstanding Casting For a Comedy Series, and her co-star Sheryl Lee Ralph won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
As the creator and star of ABC’s hit series “Abbott Elementary,” Quinta made history at the Emmys this year by being the first and youngest Black woman nominated in three comedy categories in the same year.
On “GMA,” Quinta said that she and Sheryl Lee Ralph didn’t expect to win at the Emmys, they were just happy to be there after filming the first season of “Abbott Elementary.”
She said the night turned into a beautiful moment for her and the cast.
As for Season 2 of “Abbott,” Quinta is excited that the show will have more than 13 episodes this season.
She described the extended episodes as “a lovely playground,” and she said they get to have “more fun, more meaningless fun, sitcomy fun” in Season 2.
She also mentioned they will be going more into the homes of the characters in season 2.
