Netflix Renews American Vandal for Season 2; Fred Armisen Heads to The Last Man on Earth

American Vandal

Netflix announced the renewal of the breakout true-crime satire, American Vandal. The investigation continues with eight all-new episodes in 2018, exclusively on Netflix. American Vandal co-creators/executive producers Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda, as well as showrunner/executive producer Dan Lagana, are slated to return. From co-creators Tony Yacenda (Pillow Talking) and Dan Perrault (Honest Trailers), and showrunner Dan Lagana (Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous) comes American Vandal - 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? American Vandal is produced for Netflix by CBS Television Studios, Funny Or Die and 3Arts.

American Vandal 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).
