Reboots, remakes and meta-comedy are all the rage these days, but even by today’s standards Apple TV+ show Schmigadoon! is based on an obscure choice: 1954 musical Brigadoon.
Schmigadoon! is a modern-day take on the plot of Brigadoon, and sees a couple on the brink of breaking up become trapped in the titular magical town where all the inhabitants act as if they are in a Golden Age musical.
Full of boundless energy, bright visuals and over-the-top song and dance numbers, Schmigadoon! acts as both a parody and homage to classic musicals of the ’40s and ’50s, with several of the town’s inhabitants based on iconic characters from hits such as The Music Man and Oklahoma!
However, while the show may be full of retro content, it seems so too is the release strategy – here’s the full schedule and when to expect new episodes of Schmigadoon!.

The first two episodes of the meta-musical were made available worldwide on Friday 16th July.
