Apple TV+ have released the first look at the second-half of ‘Central Park’s sophomore season, with the critically acclaimed animated-musical-comedy series returning with eight episodes, beginning March 4th.

Written by Loren Bouchard, Josh Gad and Nora Smith, the series tells the story of the Tillerman family as they navigate living in, and caring for the worlds most famous park.

Fans anticipating the eight all-new episodes concluding the show’s sophomore season have lots to look forward to; trials and tribulations of adolescence from Molly, a truly embarrassing moment at school for Cole, further investigative work from Paige into the Mayor’s corruption and Owen’s continued management of the park, his staff, and his family. If that wasn’t enough, the future of Central Park itself is still in question as Bitsy continues her sinister plot to replace the sacred Manhattan spot with a shopping arcade and towering condos.

Ahead of the show’s return, Josh Gad and Rory O’Malley reunite for “You are the Music,” a catchy musical number written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, also featuring Tituss Burgess and Emmy Raver-Lampman.

Fun fact: The series features songs written by, among others, Sara Bareilles, Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann, Cyndi Lauper, Rufus Wainwright and They Might Be Giants.

Central Park’s complete first season and first half of its second season are now streaming on Apple TV+.
