Broad City Is Renewed for Season 2, Says EP Amy Poehler

The biggest news to come out of late-night television last night wasn't Seth Meyers' debut as the host of Late Night with Seth Meyers, it was what Amy Poehler said as a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers. As Meyers' first guest, Poehler sat in the chair and announced that Broad City, the new Comedy Central comedy that premiered last month, has been renewed for a second season. And she should know, because she's the executive producer. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Season 2 will run for 10 episodes.

Broad City stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as a pair of 20-something female friends working dead-end jobs and trying to make it in the citiest of all cities, New York. The show started off as a web series before Comedy Central brought it to a bigger screen. Hannibal Burress, Chris Gethard, and John Gemberling also star. 

Broad City is paired with Workaholics on Wednesday nights, forming one of television's most formidable comedy blocks for the stoned and silly set. Though we're just two months into 2014, I'd say it's got an early hold on the title of my favorite new comedy of the year. The biggest problem I have with the show is deciding which star is my favorite, but I think we might have a Mr. Show-ian Bob vs. David debate here. I don't think there's a right answer. What do YOU say?

    Absolutely hilarious show.

    This is good news. I find Ilana's terrible habits, especially at work, to be the funniest part of the show but both ladies are great in this.

    And I have always told everyone I don't like broad comedy....

    I watched this show last week and died laughing. It is so good because as a fellow New Yorker I can see a lot of that stuff happening. Stupid Eco friendly parties on a rooftop are the worst! And while neither girl is hot by my standards I do have such a crush on Abbi. Feels like the type of girl who could be your best friend in more ways than one lol.

    I totally agree. I'm crushing hard on both of these women because they're so damn funny.
