Apple Renews 'Carpool Karaoke' for a Third Season

Apple is renewing its "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" show for a third season, Apple announced on YouTube today via James Corden's YouTube channel. The new season is already in production and will feature an episode with the cast of hit Netflix show "Stranger Things."

First launched in 2017, "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is based on the "Carpool Karaoke" segment made popular by late night talk show host James Corden.


Apple's version of the show pairs up celebrities, musicians, athletes, and more, putting them in a car together to sing popular songs.

Last season featured pairings like Jason Sudeikis and the Muppets, Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg, Weird Al paired and Andy Samberg, Nick Offerman and his wife Megan Mullally, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, and more.

While "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" was initially developed as a way to promote Apple Music, Apple has been making the episodes available for free through the TV app. Previously, it was limited to Apple Music subscribers.

The second season of "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" began airing in October 2018, so third season episodes could come this fall.

This is so cringe... as much of Apple's entertainment industry efforts. Is it that hard to focus on great tech? (software, hardware, supporting services - why is TV a supporting service is anyone's guess) This is what happens when investors have so much power and want their hands and say in the billions that Apple has. It's actually really sad and concerning.

FIRE THE ACCOUNTANT

Get back to focusing on the core business, which is falling apart.

Macs are only 6% of computer sold, mobile sales have fallen off a cliff, bluetooth speakers didn't work out, digital assistant is objectively bad, watch sales have plateaued, iTunes discontinued because it sucks, and your laptop keyboards quit working after awhile.

But you are putting money into podcasts, youtube video series, inventing new colours of watch band, and buying rap star headphone companies whose products are overpriced and make bad sound.

Like COME ON. Priorities!

Oh good. It appears I completely missed the first two seasons. And my life kept going on just fine...

Unfortunately, the Apple execs have gotten obsessed with hanging out in Hollywood and are now swayed by their influence.

I don't blame them. The production on this is super cheap and (most) celebs love being the center of attention - especially when it lines up with promotion of a new product.


Low hanging fruit - a shame, I hoped for better from Apple (no pun intended)
