The second season of Central Park begins on June 25th on Apple TV+, a 20th Television Animation production. In advance of the second season premiere, the creative team and members of the voice cast hosted a first look conversation at the ATX Television Festival. Joining creator Loren Bouchard and producers Kelvin Yu and Steven Davis were Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., and Tituss Burgess.

The majority of the panel included conversations about the great response from the first season and how passionate they are about this project. On June 25th, fans can stream the first three episodes of season two, with new episodes premiering one per week for seven weeks afterwards. The second half of season two will be released later in 2021 and the creators are already at work on a third season.
