With the doors to Whitlock High about to be thrown open for classes once again starting Thursday, September 3, Peacock is sharing a set of preview images for Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Patton Oswalt's (Happy!) third season of A.P. Bio. Now, don't me wrong: it's great seeing Oswalt's Principal Durbin, Paula Pell's Helen, Jean Villepique's Michelle, Mary Sohn's Mary, and Lyric Lewis' Stef back. But the lack of Jack (Howerton) coupled with the first two episodes being titled "Tiny Problems" and "Disgraced" and you'll understand why we're slightly more interested than usual in how the whole season kicks off.

When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher. As he comes crashing into Whitlock High School, Jack makes it absolutely clear that he will not be teaching any biology. Realizing he has a room full of honor roll students at his disposal, Jack decides instead to use the kids' brainpower for his own benefit. But are his students instead helping him to realize his dream job might actually be the one he has right now? Eager to prove that he is still king of the castle, Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt, Veep) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.
