The second season of Vice Principals premieres on HBO next month, and today the network released the trailer. HBO originally ordered all 18 episodes of the series back in 2014, and both Danny McBride and Jody Hill confirmed last year that they have no plans to extend the show beyond the upcoming season:
“The whole series is only 18 episodes and that’s it. We just wanted to make a really long movie. It’s one school year and a complete story,” McBride said at the show’s premiere. “This was an old screenplay that Jody [Hill] and I wrote back in 2006. But we needed it to be longer so we added and reworked it and broke it up into 18 segments.” “HBO trusted us to make those episodes without anyone watching them, so they really, really trust us,” McBride said. When asked if they would be interested in making more episodes if the first two seasons go well, executive producer and director Hill had a very simple answer. “No,” he said. “We already shot the 18 episodes and that’s it.”
The new season premieres on HBO Sunday, September 17th at 10:30pm.
