The League: Seth Rogen and Jason Mantzoukas to return for the final season
'If people think the last two Rafi/Dirty Randy episodes have shocked them, this is a whole new level. It's practically inhuman,' EP Jackie Schaffer tells EW
Jason Mantzoukas and Seth Rogen are reteaming for an episode of the latest — and last — season of The League. The show will once again showcase the two semi-detached cast members’ onscreen alter-egos and fan favorites, Rafi and Dirty Randy. For those unfamiliar with FXX’s sex-and-drugs-and-fantasy-football sitcom, Rafi is the insane, incest-minded brother-in-law of Nick Kroll’s character Ruxin while Dirty Randy is a similarly unhinged pornographer — and librarian!
In the 2013 season, Mantzoukas and Rogen wrote and starred in an episode, “Rafi and Dirty Randy,” and did so again last year for an origin story called “When Rafi Met Randy,” which was set in a mental hospital. The previous two Rafi and Dirty Randy tales barely featured the show’s core sextet of actors — Kroll, Mark Duplass, Katie Aselton, Stephen Rannazzisi, Paul Scheer, and Jon Lajoie — but executive producer Jackie Schaffer tells EW that this time around the show will also include the entire lead cast.
Even more importantly? According to Schaffer, who is also directing the episode, this latest Rafi and Dirty Randy adventure will be the craziest one to date. “If people think the last two Rafi/Dirty Randy episodes have shocked them, this is a whole new level,” says Schaffer, who created The League with her fellow EP and husband, Jeff. “It’s practically inhuman.”
The League premieres Sept. 9 at 10 p.m. ET on FXX.
