A comedy series that has its cable premiere tonight has just been picked up for a second season. IFC took the occasion of the series premiere of “Brockmire” to announce that the show from Funny or Die and executive producer and star Hank Azaria has been given an order for a second season, to roll out in 2018.
The channel ordered an eight-episode second season.
“We love everything about ‘Brockmire’ — from the writing, to the cast, to all the sports puns we get to use,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “The show has already gotten an amazing reception from fans and critics alike, and we are thrilled to be ‘keeping it Brockmire’ with our partners at Funny or Die and Hank Azaria for another season on IFC.”
Season one premieres tonight, April 5, at 10 p.m. on IFC.
