Comedy Central announced when the final season of “Broad City” will premiere on Thursday. That date is Jan. 24, 2019.
The network also released a trailer for the upcoming final season, which you can see above.
“Broad City” will be followed by the premiere of new series, “The Other Two,” which is from former “Saturday Night Live” head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, with Lorne Michaels as an executive producer.
Glazer and Jacobson previously teased “Broad City’s” final season, telling TheWrap it will not shy from emotion as it continues to deliver smart and absurdist comedy. “I feel like we always try to write the funniest [story], but heading toward the ending is going to be pretty heavy, and everyone is going to know it when the season starts,” Glazer said. “There’s a lot of growth in the upcoming season.”
When “Broad City” wraps, Comedy Central will still be in business with Glazer and Jacobson. The network has a first-look deal with the two, both together and independently. The deal extends to Comedy Central’s parent company Viacom’s television networks. There are three projects currently in development under this deal: “Mall Town USA,” “Platinum Status,” and “Young Professionals.”
See Comedy Central’s description of the three new projects below:
Mall Town USA: Mall Town USA is an animated comedy that follows the afterschool misadventures of a 13-year-old girl navigating the complexities of life in the classic microcosm of American culture that is The Mall. Mall Town USA is written and created by Gabe Liedman (Broad City, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and executive produced by Jacobson and Glazer.
Platinum Status: Set in the hipster-heavy east side of Los Angeles, Platinum Status tells the story of professional backup singer Noah (Eliot Glazer), a gay guy who’s always felt left out of the “community.” And after he’s dumped by his boyfriend of ten years, Noah rebounds in the least likely way: by hooking up with a girl. With help from his friends Kevin and Mimi and guidance from his kinda-sorta-girlfriend Alexa, Noah tries to evolve both in the bedroom and the recording studio. Eliot Glazer will write and executive produce and Ilana Glazer will also executive produce along with Principato Young’s Peter Principato and Brian Steinberg and Electric Avenue’s Will Arnett and Marc Forman.
Young Professionals: At age twenty-four, David Litt became one of the youngest White House speechwriters in history. Described as the “comic muse for the president,” Litt served as the lead writer for many of President Obama’s most memorable comedic moments, and his recent memoir, Thanks, Obama, is a New York Times bestseller. Inspired by Litt’s coming-of-age in our nation’s capital, Young Professionals follows five housemates growing up – personally, politically, and professionally – in the hopelessly absurd world of Washington, D.C. Young Professionals is written by and executive produced by Litt, with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer also serving as executive producers.
