Doctor’s Season Orders: Adult Swim Renews ‘Childrens Hospital’ and ‘NTSF:SD:SUV::’

Childrens Hospital Season 5 NTSF SD SUV
Adult Swim

Who would have thought that when Adult Swim‘s short-form medical comedy ‘Childrens Hospital’ debuted as a web series in 2008, that four years later the show would have an Emmy under its belt, an endless parade of celebrity guest stars, and a renewal for a fifth season?  Adult Swim has made possible exactly that, also granting an additional season to the ‘Childrens’-inspired terrorism parody ‘NTSF:SD:SUV::,’ but when will the new episodes debut?

The healing power of laughter will officially go on, as Deadline reveals that Adult Swim has renewed medical comedy ‘Childrens Hospital’ for a fifth season, and ‘NTSF:SD:SUV::’ for a third year of its absurdist procedural comedy.  The move comes as something of a no-brainer for Adult Swim, considereing that ‘Childrens Hospital’ recently garnered the 2012 Emmy for Outstanding Special Class: Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs.

Its short 10-minute run-time and December shooting schedule also easily attracts a wealth of buzz-worthy guest stars, including ‘Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and ‘Parks and Recreation‘ star Nick Offerman.  The show was created by series star Rob Corddry, operating as a six-episode web series in its 2008 debut.  ‘NTSF:SD:SUV::’ (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle) was itself initially a mock advertisement aired during ‘Childrens Hospital,’ until comedian Paul Scheer created the series for real.

New episodes of both will continue in 2013, so in the meantime tell us what you think of the current season of both ‘Childrens Hospital’ and ’NTSF:SD:SUV::’ in the comments!
