Fans of the Broad City TV show don’t have to worry about the series being cancelled too soon. Comedy Central renewed it through season five, back in January of 2016. Will their faith be rewarded, or will the ratings drop and make them regret the renewal? Stay tuned.
A scripted comedy, Broad City follows two best friends — Ilana (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) — as they navigate their twenties in New York City. In the fourth season, Comedy Central says, “Abbi and Ilana will experience NYC in a whole new way: the dead of winter.” They’ll also get new jobs, mark their “Friendiversary,” experiment with mushrooms, explore being witches, and take a trip to Florida. Hannibal Buress, John Gemberling, Stephen Schneider, Arturo Castro, Paul W. Downs, Chris Gethard, Eliot Glazer, Susie Essman, Bob Balaban, and Nicole Drespel recur on the series.
