Apple TV+ has released the official trailer for their forthcoming musical comedy series titled Schmigadoon!, starring Keegan-Michael Key and Cecily Strong. The series is scheduled to make its debut on July 16, with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode every Fridays.
The Schmigadoon! trailer, which you can check out below, begins with a couple arguing while on a hiking trip due to a miscommunication.
