Comedy Central has renewed freshman series “The Other Two” for a second season, the network announced at the top of the Heléne Yorke and Drew Tarver-led comedy’s panel during the Television Critics Association press tour Monday.
The show, which premiered Jan. 24 on Comedy Central, follows Cary, an aspiring actor (Tarver), and his sister Brooke (Yorke), a former professional dancer, as they try to find their place in the world while wrestling with their feelings about their 13-year-old brother Chase’s (Case Walker) sudden rise to internet fame.
The series also stars Molly Shannon and Ken Marino.
“I don’t know that it critiques celebrity culture and the industry,” Yorke told TheWrap of the show, which hails from Lorne Michaels and former “Saturday Night Live” head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, ahead of its premiere. “I think it lovingly points to the pitfalls. And that is necessary and so right and the balance is so great. Nothing feels like it’s being a d-k about anything, you know what I mean?”
Before revealing “The Other Two’s” Season 2 renewal, Comedy Central president Kent Alterman revealed the channel was also bringing back “Crank Yankers” and has ordered a new post-“Daily Show” late-night series, hosted by David Spade.
“The Other Two” airs Thursdays at 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central.
