With an already stellar fall lineup announced for [adult swim], between Tim and Eric, Mike Tyson, Squidbillies and more… can there be more announced? The answer: there can. We reported back in January that production was under way for Season Two of the Childrens Hospital spin-off, Newsreaders. Swim PR announced today that the new season will hit our TV screens on Thursday, October 23rd at midnight (more than likely to keep the Thursday night block fresh from the season finales of Black Jesus and Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories).
The press release also confirmed the name of new host Regan Biscayne (played by Firefly’s Alan Tudyk) replacing the conspicuously absent Louis LaFonda (played by Mather Zickel). In addition to Alan Tudyk, returning for season two will be Alison Becker, Beth Dover, Dannah Phirman, and (of course) Ray Wise reprising his role as the Andy Rooney-esque Skip Reming.
The new season will also include guest spots from Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Malin Akerman (Childrens Hospital), Billy Ray Cyrus (Hannah Montana), Jenna Fischer (The Office), Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital), Tom Lennon (Reno 911), Randall Park (Veep), Danny Pudi (Community), Rob Riggle (NTSF:SD:SUV::), Martin Starr (NTSF:SD:SUV::), James Urbaniak (Venture Bros.) and starting the season off, 80’s TV Icon, David Hasselhoff.
Check out the full press release over at Turner. Until the 23rd, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more about Newsreaders. Stay tuned.
