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).


Fred Armisen

Comedian Fred Armisen will recur as a guest star on several episodes of The Last Man on Earth as Karl, another survivor of the apocalypse - with an interesting past. Armisen will make his first guest appearance in January 2018. Fred Armisen is an actor, producer and writer in both comedy and music, who co-starred alongside The Last Man on Earth star Will Forte during his eight-year tenure at Saturday Night Live. Armisen is the co-creator, co-writer and co-star of the Emmy Award-nominated sketch comedy series Portlandia, alongside Carrie Brownstein. He also received individual acting and writing Emmy Award nominations for this series. Armisen recently lent his voice to The LEGO Ninjago Movie and the animated streaming sitcom Big Mouth. He also stars in the fictitious series Documentary Now! and recently starred in the film The Little Hours. He has appeared in countless other feature films and television series throughout his career. Catch an All-New Episode of The Last Man on Earth, returning on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on Fox.
