Fern Siegel

“Central Park,” an animated musical series, earned a season three order from Apple TV+. Co-creator Loren Bouchard (“Bob’s Burgers”) said: “Seasons two and three of ‘Central Park’ mean 29 more episodes, and something like a 115 new songs.

The show’s second season is set to premiere June 25. Owen Tillerman, the park’s manager, and his family live in the park. But a wealthy hotel heiress wants to turn beautiful Central Park into a series of condos. The Tillermans hope to stop her. The show celebrity voices include Josh Gad, Leslie Odom, Jr., Stanley Tucci, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn and Tituss Burgess.
