It's been an otherwise quiet day in the realm of TV news, but Comedy Central certainly seems to have made the most of it. Not only will breakout comedy duo 'Key & Peele' return for a fourth season, but so too will the animated 'Brickleberry' draw itself a third outing and the web series-adapted 'Drunk History' take a second course.
For as much as we've enjoyed the original web incarnation of 'Drunk History,' we're eager to get a look at Comedy Central's longer take on the series before its July 9 debut. Thankfully, our impatient drunk sensibilities won't need to wait that long, as Comedy Central has released the first full episode online to view two weeks ahead of schedule!
The moment we heard Comedy Central would take Will Ferrell's Funny Or Die web series 'Drunk History' to TV, we knew we'd be in for a cavalcade of celebrity guest stars, but perhaps not this many. The network has officially set a July 9 premiere for the web-adapted reenactment series, amid a mammoth list of guest stars that includes everyone from 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig to Winona Ryder and 'The Internship''s Owen Wilson, and that's just to start.
Every 'Workaholics' fan knows that they've gotta be fresh, and Comedy Central isn't going to argue any time soon. In addition to the fourth season of the twenty-something slacker comedy set to premiere on January 16, Comedy Central also announced at the Television Critics Association press tour its plans to return 'Workaholics' for a fifth season as well. Additionally, FunnyOrDie sketch 'Drunk History,' has officially been ordered to series but for how many episode? New details inside!
Throw away your history books, and start breaking out the glasses, we're all about to get a real education! A wildly popular (and very educational) web series may just make the leap to full prime-time when Comedy Central picks up a new comedy pilot this fall.
