    1 1 "Schmigadoon!" Barry Sonnenfeld Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio July 16, 2021 (2021-07-16)
    Melissa Gimble and Josh Skinner, doctors in New York City, meet when kicking a hospital vending machine gives them all the candy in the machine. Four years later, their relationship has become strained, so they go on a backpacking retreat to shore it up. They become lost in the woods and cross a stone bridge through the mist to find a seemingly idyllic town, reminiscent of River City, called Schmigadoon, where everyone acts like they are in a musical from the 1940s and 1950s. Melissa plays along, since she is a fan of musicals, but Josh does not like it. Melissa also takes a liking to Danny Bailey, a carnival barker, like Billy Bigelow. The next morning, Melissa and Josh discover that they cannot leave the town. A leprechaun tells them that they cannot leave Schmigadoon until they find "true love".
    2 2 "Lovers' Spat" Barry Sonnenfeld Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio and Julie Klausner July 16, 2021 (2021-07-16)
    Immediately after discovering they cannot leave Schmigadoon, Melissa and Josh get into an argument, not helped at all by the singing townspeople, which ends in them breaking up. Melissa goes on a walk where she finds Schmigadoon's Mayor Aloysius Menlove, who cheers her up with a song heavily implying that he is in the closet. Meanwhile, Josh becomes interested in flirtatious young waitress Betsy, who offers her picnic basket at the auction later. During the auction, Melissa becomes intoxicated on spiked punch, and Josh wins Betsy. Melissa auctions herself off and is won by Danny. Later that evening, Josh becomes uncomfortable because Betsy appears to be a minor. The evening is cut short by Betsy's father and his shotgun.
    3 3 "Cross That Bridge" Barry Sonnenfeld Julie Klausner and Bowen Yang July 23, 2021 (2021-07-23)
    The next morning, Melissa wakes up to find Danny making her breakfast. But she sees him as a one-night stand and leaves while he is still soliloquizing about his future offspring. Meanwhile, Josh is quickly engaged to Betsy. Mildred Layton has Josh and Melissa banned from the inn because of her prejudices against them. Josh attempts to cross the bridge with Betsy to see if she is his true love, but he fails, so he tries again with other women, to no avail. Melissa seeks help from the Mayor's wife, who implies that she is frustrated by her husband's sexual orientation. Farmer McDonough chases Josh, who seeks sanctuary in Reverend Layton's church. Inside, he notices Emma Tate, Schmigadoon's schoolmarm, who did not cross the bridge with him. Melissa asks Doc Lopez for a job as a nurse and is instantly smitten with him.
    4 4 "Suddenly" Barry Sonnenfeld Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio and Kate Gersten July 30, 2021 (2021-07-30)
    In a flashback, Josh and Melissa flee an Off-off-Broadway play that their friend is starring in; they express their love for each other. In Schmigadoon, Josh becomes Emma's new handyman in exchange for lodging; she is stern but encourages him to believe in himself. She also saves him from Betsy's father. Melissa starts work as a nurse, but Lopez is tyrannical and conservative. He refuses to assist Nancy, a pregnant young woman, and her boyfriend, so Melissa gives them a sex-education lesson; she and Josh help to deliver the baby. Mayor Menlove shares a romantic moment with Reverend Layton at the bake sale and later comes out to the townsfolk. Reflecting on this and his growing respect for Melissa, Lopez softens his absolutist outlook and declares his love for her, while Emma admits her love for Josh after he kindly aids her lisping little brother's confidence.
    5 5 "Tribulation" Barry Sonnenfeld Allison Silverman August 6, 2021 (2021-08-06)
    In a flashback, Josh is passed over for a fellowship. Melissa comforts him, but he mocks her for a misspoken cliché, apologizing that night. In Schmigadoon, Mildred incites a moral panic against the "strangers" and announces her candidacy for mayor. Meanwhile, Lopez's glamorous fiancée, Countess Gabrielle von Blerkom, returns unexpectedly from the city. Melissa expects the Countess to graciously step aside, as in The Sound of Music, but instead she takes Melissa for a drive and abandons her at gunpoint in the countryside. Melissa discovers that the symbolic heart she thought Josh lost had been in her backpack all along; she dismisses a dream ballet in its opening moments. Emma confides in Josh that she is Carson's mother and that her parents disowned her for becoming pregnant out of wedlock. Carson overhears and runs off. Josh searches for him in the woods, where Danny ambushes Josh and knocks him to the ground, where Josh finds the symbolic heart that Melissa threw across the lake.
    6 6 "How We Change" Barry Sonnenfeld Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio August 13, 2021 (2021-08-13)
    Josh finds Carson and they discuss how good relationships take work. Emma arrives and proposes that she and Carson cross the bridge to start a life with Josh. Lopez retrieves Melissa, declaring that he has chosen her over the Countess, but she wants to save her relationship with Josh. Meanwhile, Josh realizes that he wants the same thing. In town, Mildred is about to win the election. Melissa arrives, followed by Josh, interrupting the vote. She apologizes for their breakup, and he offers his love in song. The two dance together and kiss. Mildred denounces the New Yorkers, but Emma says that they have taught the townspeople to accept their true selves. Emma announces that she is Carson's mom, and other townspeople reveal long-held secrets; for example, Mildred is Nancy's mother, and Rev. Layton has feelings for Mayor Menlove. Mildred throws a tantrum and the Mayor is reelected in a landslide. Melissa tells Mildred that it is not too late to change, and the town celebrates its progress with more modern musical stylings. Hand in hand, Josh and Melissa step onto the bridge, but it is not revealed whether they are able to leave Schmigadoon.

    7 1 "Welcome to Schmicago" Alice Mathias Cinco Paul April 5, 2023 (2023-04-05)
    Josh and Melissa found true love and were able to leave Schmigadoon. They return to their medical practices, get married and buy a house, but their lives become lackluster, and their attempts to have a child fail. They return to the woods looking for Schmigadoon to regain their happiness but have no luck. On a foggy bridge, their car gets a flat tire and they end up in Schmicago, another magical place that echoes the musicals of the 1960s and 1970s, with which Melissa is less familiar. They are welcomed by a sardonic Narrator and some of the people they recognize from Schmigadoon, who have assumed different personas and do not remember Josh and Melissa or Schmigadoon. After finding a place to stay at a seedy hotel, they go to a cabaret. Josh accidentally enters a dressing room to find one of the dancers, Elsie Vale, dead. He and Melissa attempt to drive away, but the Leprechaun has disabled their car and explains that they cannot leave until their relationship reaches a happy ending. Josh is arrested for the murder of Elsie Vale.
    8 2 "Doorway to Where" Alice Mathias Jonathan Tolins April 5, 2023 (2023-04-05)
    Josh meets his cell mate, Topher, a hippie who wants to find his purpose in life. Melissa hires Bobby Flanagan as Josh's lawyer, who suggests that Melissa go undercover as a dancer at the cabaret to find the real killer. After an audition process reminiscent of that in A Chorus Line, Melissa, despite being not as skinny or as skillful a dancer as the other girls is selected for the part by club owner Octavius Kratt, and she becomes roommates with the friendly star dancer, Jenny Banks. Josh's press conference with Bobby ends in disaster, as everyone still thinks he killed Elsie Vale and will get the chair. Topher's hippie friends bust him and Josh out of jail, and they party on the Happiness Bus. Meanwhile, Melissa and the dancers celebrate her opening night at the cabaret. She then finds a clue about Quick Street in Elsie's date book, which she hopes will lead to information about Elsie's murder.
    9 3 "Bells and Whistles" Alice Mathias Julie Klausner April 12, 2023 (2023-04-12)
    Topher and his hippie tribe take Josh to their commune for a hippie communion. After Bobby tells Melissa of her husband's jail break, Melissa follows the clue to Quick Street and meets Miss Codwell, the owner of the orphanage (she offers to sell the "brats"), and Dooley Blight, a butcher who was recently released from prison. She learns that Dooley is Jenny's father and was convicted of the murder of his wife, who was really murdered by Octavius Kratt; Dooley wants revenge. Melissa finds and retrieves Josh in time for his trial. Bobby swings into court to deliver a fast-paced, razzle-dazzling defense, and Josh is acquitted. He and Melissa hope this is their happy ending so that they can leave Schmicago, but Kratt, who admits privately to murdering Elsie, now plots to marry Melissa and eliminate Josh.
    10 4 "Something Real" Alice Mathias Raina Morris April 19, 2023 (2023-04-19)
    Josh and Melissa attempt to cross the bridge but are unable to leave Schmicago. Prompted by the Narrator's hints, they speculate that this is because they need to help make others in Schmicago happy. They start by attempting to reunite Jenny with her father, Dooley, but she believes that he killed her mother and refuses to speak to him. They bring her to meet the hippie tribe, hoping that their ethos of forgiveness will rub off on her, and Josh makes up a "parable" about a girl who forgives her father, but Jenny becomes romantically interested in Topher. Seeing how happy this romance makes Jenny and Topher, Josh and Melissa take Dooley and Miss Codwell on a double date at the Kratt Klubb. This begins awkwardly, but the two finally hit it off, and Dooley goes up to Miss Codwell's orphanage for a nightcap. When they open up to each other, they realize that they can solve their problems by making the orphans into meat products.
    11 5 "Famous as Hell" Robert Luketic Josh Lieb April 26, 2023 (2023-04-26)
    With Jenny and Topher spending time together, Melissa takes over as the headliner at the cabaret, and Josh becomes the new leader of the tribe. The two begin reveling in their fame, but Jenny and Topher feel betrayed and evict the couple from Jenny's apartment. Josh and Melissa move in with Dooley and Miss Codwell, who have been feeding the orphans to fatten them up, and uncover the plot of making the orphans into sausages. Realizing that Dooley is transferring his anger at Kratt onto the orphans, they instead offer to get Dooley alone with Kratt in Melissa's dressing room. Sgt. Rivera and Madame Frau reflect that life does not always turn out as planned. Melissa flirts with Kratt and attempts to lure him to her dressing room, but he instead forces her into his car and drives away. Rivera holds Josh at gunpoint at the club as Kratt proposes to Melissa, threatening to kill Josh if she does not agree.
    12 6 "Over and Done" Robert Luketic Cinco Paul May 3, 2023 (2023-05-03)
    Melissa is about to be married to Kratt (the Narrator officiates; Bobbie handles the legal paperwork), and Josh is tied up in Kratt's power plant. Kratt instructs Rivera to kill Josh, but Josh stalls by regaling Rivera with "parables" based on his favorite movies. Dooley determines to rescue Josh, as do Topher and Jenny, with help from the tribe. They arrive, and Jenny is reunited with her father after Rivera admits that he framed Dooley for the murder of his wife. They all attempt to stop the wedding. Dooley throws his cleaver at Kratt, but it misses, pinning Kratt's tuxedo tail to the floor. Miss Codwell releases a chandelier that falls, killing Kratt. Madame Frau takes over the cabaret, where Rivera becomes a drag performer, and the now-business-minded tribe, aided by Bobbie, help to run Kratt's empire. Jenny and Topher run the orphanage, and Miss Codwell works with Dooley at the shop. Josh and Melissa are free to go, but the Narrator and the Schmicagoans tempt them to stay. The doctors explain that they want "Something Real". Leprechaun and his brother reveal that there are no "happy endings", but every day can be a "happy beginning". Back in New York, Josh cheerfully teaches medical students, and Melissa is finally pregnant.
