The Queens of Broad City are broadening their horizons. Comedy Central confirms the fan-favorite comedy duo of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will end the series with a fifth and final season in 2019, but already have new TV projects on the horizon.
Now that comedian T.J. Miller has been formally accused of sexual assault, additional women are stepping up to share their experiences. Both an adult film star, and transgender film critic reveal damning encounters with the Silicon Valley star, while Comedy Central cancels Miller’s alien puppet series, The Gorburger Show.
Like John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, The Daily Show is settling in for the long haul. Comedy Central confirms Trevor Noah has extended his contract through at least 2022, with the the addition of annual year-end specials.
By now, you know the drill. South Park doesn’t really rev up until the week or so before each premiere, but that doesn’t mean Season 21 arrives empty-handed. Check out an artful new teaser for the September premiere, as the town and its NSFW inhabitants cover “This Is How We Do It.”
Is Jordan Klepper the next Stephen Colbert? That’s certainly a question the new Daily Show companion series The Opposition With Jordan Klepper seeks to answer, along with a host of other conspiracies. See for yourself in a first teaser, along with correspondent news.
If ever you lament that South Park occupies a brief window of Comedy Central each year, you’re in for a surprise. Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and the rest will take over the network this year with an eight-day marathon of almost every episode, leading right into the Season 21 premiere.
I’ve got good news and bad on the front of Broad City Season 4. To rip the bandage off, the already-delayed August premiere has now moved to September. Still, you can watch the first Season 4 scene right now, as Abbi and Ilana meet for the first time in 2011!
The women of Broad City pushed hard enough for Hillary Clinton that the Presidential candidate herself put in an appearance, so it follows that Season 4 would take a hardline stance on Trump. So much so, in fact, that Abbi and Ilana have opted to censor his name entirely.
Broad City may be returning for Season 4 later in the year than usual, but Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer certainly used the time well. A jam-packed first trailer for the August premiere sees the girls headed to Florida and going animated, with guest stars from RuPaul to Jane Curtin.
Many comedians see their star rising beyond the comedy showcase that bears their name, just as Amy Schumer fans questioned the fifth season commitment for Inside Amy Schumer after Season 4 earlier this year. Now, following recent controversy with one of the series’ writers, Schumer tacitly suggests Inside Amy Schumer Season 5 may not happen after all.
