Comedy Central's debaucherous spoof returns June 15
It’s the Bellacourts, bitch.
The worst first family of Comedy Central’s Another Period — the high society-skewering spoof described last year, quite perfectly, as Downton Abbey meets the Kardashians — is back for another round of 20th century turnt-up trouble, and EW has the first look.
The ten-episode second season of Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome’s brainchild will debut on June 15 on Comedy Central; even better news, the show has already been renewed for a third go-round. Watch the season two trailer here:
Leggero and Lindhome star as the ever-immoral Lillian and Beatrice Bellacourt, the obnoxious, fame-hungry heiresses to a wealthy 1902 household populated by illegitimate siblings (Jason Ritter), manic family heads (David Koechner and Paget Brewster), secret gay husbands (David Wain and Brian Huskey), and a host of equally unhinged servants (Michael Ian Black, Christina Hendricks, Beth Dover, and more).
This season, real-life historical figures including Albert Einstein, Teddy and Eleanor Roosevelt, and Harriet Tubman will pay a visit to Newport, Rhode Island to knock elbows with the Bellacourts along their way to the top of social strata. A slew of real-life, non-historically famous celebrities who will join the party, including Joss Whedon, Adam Pally, Andrew Rannells, Jim O’Heir, Michaela Watkins, June Diane Raphael, Perez Hilton, Missi Pyle, Aasif Mandvi, Jemaine Clement, Andrew Daly, Cedric the Entertainer, Lauren Lapkus, and more.
A mini-marathon of season one of Another Period will debut on the Comedy Central App and cc.com on June 8.
