This fall on Broad City, winter is coming.

Comedy Central will air the season 4 premiere of Broad City on Sept. 13 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, the network announced on Tuesday. The new batch of episodes features Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) and Ilana (Ilana Glazer) making their way through winter in NYC. RuPaul, Shania Twain, Steve Buscemi, Sandra Bernhard, Mike Birbiglia, Jane Curtin, Susie Essman, Peri Gilpin, Alysia Reiner, Amy Ryan, Constance Shulman, and Wanda Sykes are among the famous faces popping up in season 4, which was originally set for an Aug. 23 bow.

The network has also set the series premiere date for The Opposition With Jordan Klepper, a new late-night talk show hosted by the former Daily Show correspondent. The Opposition, which aims to “satirize the hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape on both the right and left,” will debut Sept. 25 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following The Daily Show.

In other news, freshman series The Jim Jefferies Show and The President Show received extensions on their first seasons. The network ordered 10 more episodes of the Australian comedian’s late-night series and seven episodes of the Donald Trump-skewering show featuring Anthony Atamanuik. The President Show currently airs Thursday at 11:30 p.m., but will move to midnight on Sept. 28, as The Opposition will take that 11:30 slot.

Trevor Noah will take The Daily Show to Chicago for a week of episodes titled “The Daily Show Undesked Chicago 2017: Let’s Do This Before It Gets Too Damn Cold.” He’ll host at the Athenaeum Theatre from Oct. 16 through Oct. 19.

Meanwhile, sketch comedy group Goatface — which includes The Daily Show‘s Hasan Minhaj, as well as Asif Ali, Fahim Anwar, and Aristotle Athira — will headline a one-hour special for the network.

Ilana Wexler (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi Abrams (Abbi Jacobson) take on NYC with nothing but youth and marijuana on their side in this Amy Poehler-produced comedy.
