Ryan Hansen’s YouTube Comedy Renewed for Season 2

Actor enlisted ”Veronica Mars“ alums for fan campaign to get ”Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television*“ renewed earlier this year

YouTube has renewed “Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television*” for a second season, the company announced on Friday.

The half-hour comedy, which stars the “Veronica Mars” alum and “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Samira Wiley, will return for a second outing in 2019.

The news was announced as part of YouTube’s upcoming slate of originals, which also includes a bungee jumping special with Will Smith, a documentary about disgraced music producer Lou Pearlman, a scripted comedy from Adam Pally and Sam Richardson, an untitled series about artificial intelligence from Robert Downey Jr., and returning originals like “Cobra Kai,” “Step Up: High Water” and “Kevin Hart: What the Fit.”

“Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television*,” a meta comedy skewering Hollywood and police procedurals, stars Hansen as a version of himself who joins an LAPD task force partnering actors with homicide detectives so they can use their “actor skills” to help solve murders.

The first season premiered on YouTube last October. Back in May, Hansen enlisted his fellow “Veronica Mars” alums Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring to initiate a fan campaign to convince YouTube to give it a second season.
