Schmigadoon!: We Speak to Series Co-Creator Cinco Paul!

Dept. of Chats and Confabs


The first season of Apple TV Plus’ Schmigadoon! was all singing, all dancing delight. The series introduced us to Josh and Melissa, a couple with a troubled relationship, who inadvertently stumble onto the magical (and maybe slightly ridiculous) town of Schmigadoon and find true love. Now, Josh and Melissa are back and trying to rekindle that love, except instead of finding the town of Schmigadoon, they’ve somehow stumbled in to the darker, sexier, Schmicago. In this first in our series of Goggler exclusives the cast and crew of Schmigadoon!, we got the chance to speak to co-creator and executive producer Cinco Paul, about this grittier second season of the series.

Having already found true love in the town of Schmigadoon, Season 2 of Apple TV Plus’ critically acclaimed series finds Josh and Melissa in Schmicago, the reimagined world of ’60s and ’70s musicals. 

Schmigadoon! was created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, and stars Cecily Strong, Keegan-Michael Key, Ariana DeBose, Martin Short, Dove Cameron, Jaime Camil, Kristin Chenoweth, Alan Cumming, Ann Harada, Jane Krakowski, Aaron Tveit, Tituss Burgess, and Patrick Page.

The first two episodes of the second season of Schmigadoon! premiere on Apple TV Plus on Wednesday, April 5.
