The ABC hit sitcom “Abbott Elementary” returned for its second season on Wednesday night. “Abbott Elementary” centers on the lives of teachers at a Philadelphia school.

Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown’s name is mentioned in the episode. “Hey Janine! This year is going to be different…” Mr. Johnson, played by William Stanford Davis, tells Brunson’s character, who believes the janitor is referring to the school year. But Mr. Johnson, wearing an Eagles hat, had other things on his mind: “Because we got A.J. Brown! We back, baby!”

A.J. Brown was happy with the reference and would like to be an extra on the show.
