Comedy Central has invited the idiot back.

The network announced on Monday that it has ordered a 10-episode second season of Idiotsitter, which stars Jillian Bell as a spoiled, out-of-control heiress under house arrest, and Charlotte Newhouse as the unfortunate Ivy League graduate who unwittingly signed up to babysit her.

Season 1 ended in March with Gene (Bell) getting her GED. Season 2, which will premiere in 2017, features Gene and Billie (Newhouse) in college.

“We’re so excited to get to do this again,” Bell and Newhouse, who also serve as the show’s creators/executive producers, said in a statement. “It’s literally the most fun we’ve ever had in our lives. Hopefully the new college atmosphere will broaden our minds and teach us how to butt chug.”

The show, which includes Stephen Root and Jennifer Elise Cox in its cast, began as a web series in 2014 before it debuted on Comedy Central as a half-hour comedy earlier this year.
