IFC has renewed podcast-turned-surreal talk show Comedy Bang! Bang! for a third season, host Scott Aukerman announced over the weekend. The news was first made public at New York Comic Con, and was confirmed on today’s episode of the podcast with guests Bob Odenkirk and The Birthday Boys. Like the second season, the show’s third year will feature 20 episodes, split into two 10-episode chunks.
It’s not an enormous surprise, since the TV production arm of Aukerman’s Earwolf empire is set to produce The Embassy for IFC, which will star James Adomian. The cable network has a first-look deal with Earwolf Productions, and Earwolf will continue to develop series for the network. The second half of Comedy Bang! Bang!’s second season kicks off this Friday, October 18th.
