Bring out the celebratory cocaine wine, because Comedy Central has renewed Riki Lindhome and Natasha Leggero’s double-parody series Another Period for a second season. Another Period follows the Bellacourt sisters—played by Lindhome and Leggero—and their quest to become the Kardashians of the early 1900s.
Effectively parodying Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Downton Abbey at the same time, Another Period fills the halls of Bellacourt Manor with an impressive slate of actors, including Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, David Koechner, Jason Ritter, David Wain, Armen Weitzman, and even Christina Hendricks as a servant named Chair. Her real name is Celine, but really, it’s Chair. If the comedy ends up being anything like KUWTK, there are many, many, many more seasons to come.
“Another Period is a beautiful reflection of a great American truth: the more things change, the more they stay the same,” said Kent Alterman, president of original programming at Comedy Central. “We are thrilled that Comedy Central has such good taste,” Leggero and Lindhome added in the announcement. Season two will premiere in 2016, and the penultimate episode of season one airs tonight at 10:30 p.m.
