The comedy centers on a group of trouble-making high school teachers. The cast includes Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl, Ben Roy, and Maria Thayer. Guest stars have included Susie Essman, Kyle Kinane, Hana Mae Lee, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Patton Oswalt, Cheri Oteri, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Rory Scovel, and Baron Vaughn.
Season two of the series just ended in December and earned fairly low ratings, averaging a .10 in the 18-49 demo and a total of only 204,000 viewers. Comparatively, season one averaged a .17 rating in the 18-49 demo and a total of 332,000 viewers. Despite low ratings, truTV chief Chris Linn says the network loves the show:
From day one, we have loved this show and are proud of the world of rich characters that Adam, Andrew and Ben have built through two successful seasons. There are more hilarious stories to tell at Smoot High, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next.”
The network has ordered 13 new episodes for season three, which is slated to begin sometime later this year.
