Apple TV+ has announced that Central Park, the critically acclaimed, hit animated musical comedy series, will return for its third season on Friday, September 9. From creator, writer and executive producer Loren Bouchard, Josh Gad and Nora Smith, the 13-episode third season will premiere globally on Apple TV+ with three episodes, followed by one episode weekly every Friday thereafter through November 18.
In the third season of Central Park, as Bitsy (voiced by Stanley Tucci) continues her relentless pursuit to buy the park, Owen (Leslie Odom Jr.) embarks on a new promotional campaign to make more people fall in love with it, and Paige (Kathryn Hahn) finds herself busier than ever when she lands her first book deal.
After stepping down from the role of Molly in 2020, Kristen Bell again stars in S3 in the new role of Abby, Paige’s little sister, rejoining the rest of the core cast — Josh Gad (Birdie), Tituss Burgess (Cole), Daveed Diggs (Helen) and Emmy Raver-Lampman (Molly).
Guest stars lending their voice talents to this season include The Afterparty stars Sam Richardson, Ike Barinholtz, Ben Schwartz and Zoë Chao; Loot star Ron Funches; Hello, Jack star Jack McBrayer; as well as Amber Ruffin, Yvette Nicole Brown, Craig Robinson, Tim Meadows, David Alan Grier and more. The new season will also add over 40 new original songs to the celebrated catalog.
The first two seasons of Central Park are now streaming on Apple TV+. Since its global debut, the series has been recognized with Emmy Award nominations for stars Odom Jr., Burgess and Tucci, and an NAACP Image Award nomination in the Outstanding Animated Series category.
Central Park is written and executive produced by Bouchard, alongside Gad and Smith. Steven Davis and Kelvin Yu serve as showrunners and also executive produce. The series is produced for Apple by 20th Television Animation, a part of Disney Television Studios.
