From Comedy Central:
NEW YORK, March 7, 2017 – It’s back to school for Comedy Central’s most mischievous duo, Gene (Jillian Bell) and Billie (Charlotte Newhouse), as they return for season two of Idiotsitter premiering Thursday, April 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. For fans that want to relive the shenanigans of the season, the entire first season will be available to stream via cc.com and the Comedy Central App from March 20 through April 5 (no authentication required).
In the second season of Idiotsitter the adventurous, odd couple Billie and Gene head off to college where Billie is determined to fulfill her lifelong dream of being a college professor and Gene learns what it means to be a co-ed.
Idiotsitter follows the lives of Billie, a cash-strapped, straight and narrow Ivy League grad, who reluctantly answers a babysitting ad to make ends meet, and Gene, an heiress in need of a court-appointed guardian while under house arrest in her daddy’s mansion.
