Comedy Central has renewed “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” for a Season 2, two months ahead of the series premiere, the network announced at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday.
“Legends of Chamberlain Heights,” produced by Bento Box Entertainment, is an animated series that centers on three high school freshman basketball benchwarmers: Jamal, Grover and Milk. The series will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 14.
Bento Box co-founders Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara serve as executive producers on the series, along with co-creator Brad Ableson and showrunner Devon Shepard, with co-creators Quinn Hawking and Josiah Johnson producing.
“This show pushes the envelope far enough to warrant a second season before season one even airs,” Alterman said in a statement.
“We are so lucky to be working with Comedy Central and their strong executive team,” Kuwahara added. “They’ve been nothing but supportive and getting a second season is like hitting a game-winning three-pointer!”
