Tv Season Info

A long-running `Diff'rent Strokes' spin-off set at a girls boarding school, with the Drummond's former housekeeper, Mrs. Garrett, now a housemother. The venues for her charges' escapades moved off-campus in later years when Mrs. Garrett opened a series of eateries in town, but her core group of young women remained largely unchanged.

Critic Reviews for The Facts of Life: Season 2

All Critics (2)

The second season fares much better; in it, the show pares the principal cast down to just the four school girls along with Mrs. Garrett. The humor is far more developed in this season.
