Today, Comedy Central announced new premieres are coming for a lot of its well-liked programs, and many of our favorite Comedy Central shows are coming sooner than audiences might guess. New seasons of South Park, Tosh.O and Key & Peele and many more are hitting homes soon. Some of the shows will pop up in the schedule in just a few weeks and some will be headed in to homes this fall, as part of a more traditional schedule.
Here’s what Comedy Central has lined up in the coming months:
Tosh.O - Premieres Tuesday, August 26 at 10 p.m. ET.
Adam Devine’s House Party - Season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 9 at 10:30 p.m. ET. Will move to its regular Thursday timeslot on September 11 at 12:30 a.m. ET.
Brickleberry - Season 3 premieres Tuesday, September 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
South Park - Season 18 premieres Wednesday, September 24 at 10 p.m. ET. Just like last season, Comedy Central has ordered 10 episodes.
Key & Peele - Season 4 premieres on Wednesday, September 24 at 10:30 p.m. ET. Guest stars this season include Paget Brewster, Ty Burrell, Anna Camp, Julia Duffy, Clint Howard, Ernie Hudson, Rashida Jones, Rominy Malko, Lance Moore, Seth Morris, Kumail Nanjiani, Chelsea Peretti, Lance Reddick, Retta, Jason Ritter, Richard Schiff and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution - Season 3 premieres on Friday, October 3 at 12 a.m. ET.
Comedy Central is one of the few networks that caters to adults who like to stay up late and probably aren’t on the 9-5 p.m. work grind. The network has great offerings starting at 10 p.m. at night and extending sometimes well past midnight. In a lot of ways, Comedy Central is a lot like Adult Swim, but unlike Swim, I’m glad the cable network doesn’t limit itself to animated programming, instead offering laughs via some animation, some live action, some sketch comedy, some talk programming and some stand-up. There’s a lot of variety in humor, and Comedy Central doesn’t shy away from any branch.
We’ll have to wait until September for a lot of the network’s biggest programs to hit the schedule. South Park and Key & Peele are both coming off pretty big seasons at the network, with the former putting together a memorable Game of Thrones-esque episode and the latter gaining more traction in the ratings spurred by good word-of-mouth. (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s hilarious appearance on FX’s hit series Fargo also may have helped). It’s always tough for the smaller networks to premiere shows during the same time period as the big networks, but that’s likely why Comedy Central is only betting on its Wednesday lineup at the end of September.
Comedy Central hasn’t really started advertising the network’s upcoming seasons, but keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for a look at the brand new episodes. In the meantime, here’s a look at 8 new shows the network has coming up.
