Hannibal Buress’s solo attempt at Comedy Central with ‘Why With Hannibal’ wasn’t able to move forward, but his involvement on Broad City is a hit. Today Comedy Central revealed that they have ordered 2 more seasons of the series in which Hannibal co-stars on as a pediatric dentist.
Comedy Central is betting big on the broads. The network announced Wednesday that it was renewing Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s Broad City for both a fourth and fifth season. Making the bet that much bigger, it’s also greenlighting Time Traveling Bong, a three-episode limited series from Glazer and her Broad City co-exec producers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. The latter is set to debut April 20th, following the third-season finale of Broad, and will rollout over three consecutive nights. The news comes a month and a half before the third season of the cult series is set to begin.
Season 3 of Broad City to return to Comedy Central at 10 p.m. on Feb. 17.
