Hulu has picked up a second season of the comedy series Difficult People starring Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner. The series, executive produced by Klausner, Amy Poehler, Dave Becky, Tony Hernandez, and Scott King (who also serves as showrunner), will have a 10 episode season two. Making the announcement, Hulu’s SVP Head of Content Craig Erwich said they’ve been fans of the series from the beginning.
“I cannot wait to see what a whole new season will bring and am pleased to bring more of their hilarious brand of comedy to fans,” said Erwich. Hulu will be working in collaboration with Universal Cable Productions on season two.
“From our first meeting with Julie, Billy and Amy, to the spec pilot we shot with them, to Hulu’s spectacular and ongoing commitment, this has been a dream of a show. And I’m not just saying that because I’m afraid of them,” said Jeff Wachtel, President, Universal Cable Productions and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.
“I’m the luckiest girl in the world to be able to make more episodes of Difficult People,” said Klausner. “This must be what it feels like to win the lottery, have a fast metabolism or win an Oscar for My Cousin Vinny.”
Difficult People hails from Julie Klausner (Billy on the Street) who stars alongside Emmy®-nominated Billy on the Street host Billy Eichner. As best friends living in New York City, their typical, irreverent behavior lands them in some very awkward situations.
