Netflix will be bringing back a breakout series, announcing today that it has ordered an eight-episode second season of “American Vandal.” The new season of the true-crime satire will arrive in 2018.
The show’s co-creators and executive producers Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda will return, along with showrunner and executive producer Dan Lagana.
Netflix describes the series as “a half-hour true-crime satire that explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left 27 faculty cars vandalized with phallic images. Over the course of the eight-episode season, an aspiring sophomore documentarian investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of troubled senior (and known dick-drawer) Dylan Maxwell. Not unlike its now iconic true-crime predecessors, the addictive ‘American Vandal’ will leave one question on everyone’s minds until the very end: Who drew the dicks?”
The series is produced for Netflix by CBS Television Studios, Funny Or Die and 3Arts.
Season 1 starred Tyler Alvarez (Peter Maldanaldo), Griffin Gluck (Sam Ecklund), Jimmy Tatro (Dylan Maxwell), Camille Hyde (Gabi Granger), Eduardo Franco (Spencer Diaz), Jessica Juarez (Brianna Gagne), Lou Wilson (Lucas Wiley), Camille Ramsey (Mackenzie Wagner), Calum Worthy (Alex Trimboli) and G Hannelius (Christa Carlyle).
Additional executive producers include Joe Farrell for Funny or Die and Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg for 3Arts.
