The Bear Standout Ayo Edebiri Joins Abbott Elementary

Ayo Edebiri has been acting for a while, but skyrocketed into public consciousness after her dynamic performance as sous chef Sydney Adamu on Hulu’s hit series, “The Bear.” Ever since then, the offers for Edebiri have been rolling out faster than Family Meal. Edebiri got her start as a writer on shows like “What We Do in the Shadows” and “Dickinson,” before heading on-screen as Hattie in “Dickinson” and taking over as the voice of Missy on “Big Mouth.” Most recently, Edebiri was announced as joining the cast of Marvel’s “Thunderbolts.” She’s also slated to co-star alongside Rachel Sennott for Emma Seligman’s upcoming “Bottoms,” the feature follow-up after her breakthrough debut, “Shiva Baby.”

The upcoming episode of “Abbott Elementary” will tackle the trials and tribulations of the Valentine’s Day holiday, forcing them to reckon with their own love lives. According to EW, the episode will also see Janine struggle with the realization that one of her students has a crush on her, and learning a secret about another teacher when she seeks advice. Additionally, principal Ava (Janelle James) is forced to sit in on Jacob’s lesson for Black History Month after receiving a formal complaint. My entire body is already tensing up at how awkward that scene is going to play out.

“Abbott Elementary” airs on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on ABC and is available the following day on Hulu.
