OK One More: Kevin Pollak, But That’s Absolutely It
After putting murderous ventriloquists, bakers and painters behind bars in its first amazing season, TBS’s Angie Tribeca is ready to untangle all new webs of deceit in the gripping second season. Rashida Jones, Hayes MacArthur, Jere Burns, Deon Cole, Andrée Vermeulen and Jagger the German Shepherd will be back when the powerful police drama returns Monday, June 6, exclusively on TBS, a division of Turner.
TBS’s first-ever police procedural, Angie Tribeca is the brainchild of Nancy and Steve Carell, who are executive-producing the series along with showrunner Ira Ungerleider. The buzz-generating hit has drawn widespread critical acclaim, with the LA Times calling it “an entertaining joyride,” Vanity Fair dubbing it “absurd and very, very funny,” and Entertainment Weekly saying “it never gets old.”
In its first season, Angie Tribeca ranked as basic cable’s #1 Monday night sitcom and reached more than 4.2 million viewers per episode across TBS’s linear, VOD, digital and mobile platforms. The series launched in January with a groundbreaking 25-hour “Binge-A-Thon,” generating more than 65 million impressions on social media. In addition, 36% of the Binge-A-Thon viewers were new to TBS.
Angie Tribeca follows a squad of committed LAPD detectives who investigate the most serious cases. At the center is Angie Tribeca, a lone-wolf detective played by Rashida Jones. Hayes MacArthur is her partner, Jay Geils. Jere Burns plays the squad’s apoplectic lieutenant. Helping solve each complex case are detective Danny Tanner, played by Deon Cole; Dr. Monica Scholls, the brilliant, bespectacled medical examiner played by Andrée Vermeulen; and detective David Hoffman, Tanner’s K9 German Shepard partner played by Jagger.
In the second season, Angie and the detectives of the LAPD will investigate the murder of a sushi chef, the death of the “bad boy” in a boy band who gets decapitated by a t-shirt cannon and a band of drug-dealing lifeguards. In addition, they will tackle a difficult case with the help of a romance novelist.
As in its first season, Angie Tribeca’s second season will feature a parade of recognizable guest stars, including; James Franco, Heather Graham, Mary McCormack, Noah Wyle, Maya Rudolph, Eriq La Salle, Danny Pudi, Busy Philipps, Kevin Pollak, Rhys Darby, Ed Begley Jr., Joe Jonas, Joey McIntyre and a few more special surprise guests. (Spoiler Alert: Most of them will turn out to be the perpetrators of the crimes being investigated.) In addition, Alfred Molina will continue filling the community service requirements of his probation by once again playing the recurring role of Dr. Edelweiss.”
What do you think? Did you watch season one of Angie Tribeca? Will you watch season two?
Refreshing, silly, great cast. Great fun. We need some fun now.
My husband and I just love Angie Tribeca! The show is as campy as campy can get. We haven’t seen this much campy as Soap! It’s great! And, we will be watching her as long as she’s renewed! We both just love this show! It makes even me laugh! And, that goes a long way, as my laugh and smile were taken from me in 1995, due to a botched surgery. Please, do not cancel this one tv show that gives us hope for comedy to come back to tv!!!
Love the show. It gives me something to laugh about. Too much serious shows on tv
I love to laugh, so can hardly wait for the season opener!
