TBS today announced 10-episode season 2 renewals of its two most recent critically acclaimed comedies, People of Earth and Search Party.
They join recently announced renewals of Angie Tribeca, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, The Detour and Wrecked, in addition to comedy mainstays Conan and American Dad!
“Twelve months ago we set out to reimagine the TBS brand and its place in the TV landscape. To end 2016 with all six shows returning is humbling,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “The amazing teams behind People of Earth and Search Party have created complex, funny characters and crafted truly distinctive stories. Renewing both shows is the perfect end to a transformative year for TBS.”
People of Earth centers on skeptical journalist Ozzie Graham (Wyatt Cenac) who investigates a support group to write about the members’ supposed alien encounters.
The more he digs into their oddball claims, however, the more he realizes a semblance of truth to their stories and, possibly, even signs that point to his own alien abduction.
Search Party is a dark comedy about four self-absorbed 20-somethings who become entangled in an ominous mystery when a former college acquaintance named Chantal suddenly disappears.
The cast of Search Party features an ensemble of young comic actors, including John Early, John Reynolds, Meredith Hagner and Brandon Micheal Hall.
