If you’re a frequent reader here at Comedy Examiner HQ, you know that we were big, raving, frothing-at-the-mouth fans of Comedy Central’s newest live-action/scripted comedy series, Workaholics. The series– which stars Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson– received a solid critical response (not to mention really strong ratings) when it debuted on Comedy Central earlier this year. In fact, the network ordered a second season long before the first had wrapped. We knew more Workaholics was on the way, but until today…we didn’t know when. Keep on reading for the details of Workaholics‘ return, my gentle Examiner readers…
We’re big fans of Comedy Central here at Comedy Examiner HQ, but we also recognize that– primarily in the past– the network hasn’t had the best luck with their original programming. For every South Park, Daily Show, or Tosh.0, there are three The Jeff Dunham Shows, a show that was the very opposite of “comedy”. Every once in awhile, though– and with increasing frequency– the network has delivered something surprisingly great.
Their latest surprisingly awesome show? Workaholics, the series created by former Mail Order Comedy stars Blake Anderson, Anders Holm, and Adam Devine.
Comedy Central sent us the first few episodes before the season started, and by the end of that little triple-header, we were hooked. We were even more enthused when the rest of the season turned out to be even better. And then– throughout the season– we interviewed each of the series’ leads (check out this page for a collection of all our Workaholics coverage), and we found them to be just as kick-ass as we hoped they’d be.
Yes, it’s fair to say that we became– and remain– raging Workaholics fans (pro-tip: if you’ve never seen the show, check out the “office camp-out” episode or the Insane Clown Posse episode).
One of the interesting things we learned during that batch of cast interviews was that Comedy Central had ordered a second season of the show about midway through season one (a decision made easy by Workaholics‘ strong ratings). When we last spoke with the Workaholics crew, they were gearing up to write season two. As of today, it’s been announced that Workaholics will return on September 20th.
Yes, while the rest of us were drinking beer in the pool and nursing hangovers, the Workaholics crew was spending their summer creating more awesome workplace-based comedy for all of us. I strongly suggest that all of you write a “Thank You” note.
Stay tuned for more on the upcoming second season of Workaholics at it becomes available, folks.
