Live-action, scripted Comedy Central TV series don’t rack up big ratings, but they still like to keep a few on hand. The Detroiters TV show premiered last year and did all right by the cable network’s standards, so now it’s back for a second season. Can it build up its audience and earn higher ratings this time out? Will Detroiters be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A Comedy Central buddy comedy series, Detroiters revolves around Sam Duvet (Sam Richardson) and Tim Cramblin (Tim Robinson).
