The original ballers are back and here to stay. Comedy Central’s turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series, Another Period, has been renewed for a third season. The ten-episode second season, co-created by and starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, directed by Jeremy Konner and executive produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour, debuts on Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Prior to season two’s premiere, fans can indulge themselves as the Bellacourts’ would by binging on the entire first season of Another Period, available on the Comedy Central App and right here starting June 8th.
“I was raised to understand it’s not polite to talk about periods, so I’ll leave it at that,” said Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central.
“We’d like to thank Comedy Central for this continued opportunity to dress like queens and act like assholes,” said Leggero and Lindhome.
Another Period tells the incredible story of the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice (played by Leggero and Lindhome), who are defined by their family’s wealth and care only about becoming super famous – which is a lot harder in 1902 – and follows the insanely decadent and outrageous life of the Bellacourt coterie. Before others claimed their fame, they were the one American family who epitomized all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid – with more servants than relatives and days filled with money, sex, drugs…and more money.
During the second season, the Bellacourts and the poor souls under their servitude return for a whole new season full of excess and debauchery with Lillian and Beatrice seeking advice on how to rebrand, attempting to divorce their gay husbands, pursuing new male suitors, fighting infectious diseases and, of course, still trying to become famous. Servants from downstairs head upstairs, sex is attempted to be had for pleasure, political scandals play out, and illustrious characters from our nation’s past – such as Albert Einstein, Teddy and Eleanor Roosevelt and Harriet Tubman – pay visit to Newport’s first family.
