Comedy Central has given Another Period an order for a 10 episode second season as just announced by Comedy Central’s President of Original Programming Kent Alterman. The series was created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, executive producers, writers, and stars of the half hour comedy. Ben Stiller, Jeremy Konner, Debbie Liebling, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein also executive produce the series.
Season two will air in 2016. Season one is airing on Tuesday nights at 10:30pm ET/PT.
“Another Period is a beautiful reflection of a great American truth: the more things change, the more they stay the same,” stated Alterman.
“We are thrilled that Comedy Central has such good taste,” added Leggero and Lindhome.
Before others claimed their fame, there was one American family that stood for all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid. Meet the Bellacourts – Newport, RI’s First Family of the Gilded Age. They have tons of money, live in a big-ass mansion and employ a whole team of Fonzworth Bentleys.
However, the Bellacourts’ servants have to do a lot more than hold umbrellas. Another Period centers on the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian (Leggero) and Beatrice (Lindhome), who only care about being rich and becoming super famous (which is a lot harder in 1902).
Lauren Ash, Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, Christina Hendricks, Brian Huskey, David Koechner, Jason Ritter, David Wain and Armen Weitzman appear alongside Leggero and Lindhome. Guest stars for the series’ first season include Matt Besser, Jack Black, Jon Daly, John Ennis, Kate Flannery, Rich Fulcher, Tim Heidecker, Moshe Kasher, Lauren Lapkus, Thomas Lennon, Kate Micucci, Chris Parnell, Lou Diamond Phillips, Missi Pyle, Will Sasso, Betsy Sodaro, Shoshannah Stern, Ben Stiller, Stephen Tobolowsky and Brian White.
