Comedy Central has renewed “Good Talk With Anthony Jeselnik” for an eight-episode second season.
“I love making this show and look forward to continuing Comedy Central’s unprecedented winning streak through 2020,” said Jeselnik.
Each episode of the series, which premiered in September, features an interview with one of Anthony’s friends, who happen to be some of the biggest names in comedy.
In its first season, some of Jeselnik’s guests included Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, Kumail Nanjiani, Tig Notaro, Kristen Schaal and David Spade. The episodes are also available to listen to in podcast form on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
The show is part of Jeselnik’s multiplatform development deal with Comedy Central, which also includes “The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project” podcast, part of Comedy Central’s Global Podcast Network, now in its second season. In the past, Jeselnik and Comedy Central have also collaborated on two seasons of “The Jeselnik Offensive” and his 2013 stand-up special, “Caligula.”
“Anthony has a knack for wit and irony in the flow of conversation, which makes him a hilarious and great interviewer,” said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, co-heads of original content. “It’ll be a treat to see him continue to push boundaries with an all-new lineup of comedian friends.”
Jeselnik, Christie Smith and Meaghan Rady executive produce for “Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik,” and Rady also serves as showrunner. Anne Harris, Tara Schuster and Jackie Sosa are executives in charge of the series for Comedy Central.
“Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik” returns for Season 2 in 2020.
