HBO’s Crashing, the comedy from Pete Holmes and Judd Apatow that’s currently in the midst of its first eight-episode season, has just gotten the green light for a second, likely set to air sometime in 2018.
Created by and starring stand-up Holmes, Crashing is the mostly autobiographical story of his own career – telling the story of how, fresh out of college, an optimistic young Holmes faced some major life changes when he caught his wife cheating and threw himself into the NYC stand-up scene to cope.
The show follows Holmes as he tries to make it in a hostile new city, crashing on fellow comics’ couches as he fights for stage time. The format allows for plenty of fun cameos; the first season features pals T.J. Miller, Jim Norton, Sarah Silverman, Dave Attell, Hannibal Burress, and, for some reason, Rachael Ray.
And while Holmes’ has earned his share of critical acclaim for his acting debut, its Artie Lange who’s been making huge waves since Crashing premiered, for his scene-stealing guest spot in the show’s first episode.
We can’t wait to see who Holmes and producer Apatow line up for season two.
Crashing airs Sunday nights on HBO.
