In good news for mankind, the People of Earth TV show has been renewed for a second season on TBS. The comedy series follows a reporter and the members of “StarCrossed” — a support group for alien abductees. Wyatt Cenac stars as New York journalist, Ozzie Graham. Although at first, he is skeptical of the group’s claims, he begins to suspect he too has been abducted.
David Jenkins created People of Earth and is a co-executive producer on the series. Ana Gasteyer, Oscar Nuñez, Michael Cassidy, Alice Wetterlund, Luka Jones, Brian Huskey, Nancy Lenehan, Tracee Chimo, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Björn Gustafsson, and Ken Hall also star.
TBS also renewed the Search Party TV series, today. Here’s more on the People of Earth renewal, excerpted from a TBS press release.

Viewers and Critics Connect with Latest Comedies Defining the New TBS
Turner’s TBS ends an impressive and transformative year with renewals of all six of its 2016 scripted comedies. The network today announced 10-episode season 2 renewals of its two most recent critically acclaimed comedies, People of Earth and Search Party, which join the network’s previous 2016 renewals of Angie Tribeca, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, The Detour and Wrecked, in addition to comedy mainstays Conan and American Dad!
Since premiering Halloween night, People of Earth has ranked one of the year’s Top 10 new cable comedies among adults 18-49 and is currently reaching 4.3 million viewers per episode across all platforms. The series has continued to grow throughout the season, with episode seven hitting a season high up 28 percent vs. the season average. People of Earth, airing Mondays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) from Emmy® winners Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels, along with creator David Jenkins stars an ensemble cast led by Wyatt Cenac as a reporter investigating a support group for alien abductees.
“Twelve months ago we set out to reimagine the TBS brand and its place in the TV landscape. To end 2016 with all six shows returning is humbling,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “The amazing teams behind People of Earth and Search Party have created complex, funny characters and crafted truly distinctive stories. Renewing both shows is the perfect end to a transformative year for TBS.”
Season two of People of Earth will premiere in 2017.
What do you think? Have you watched season one of the People of Earth TV series? Do you plan to tune in for season two on TBS?
yes, my husband & I will watch Season 2 of “People of Earth” – the writing is fun and the premise is quirky.
We (husband and I) love the show and cannot wait for its return! The show is different and strangely we find ourselves loving Jeff (The Gray).
Yes I will be watching season 2 of People Of Earth. I love it !!
TBS is certainly on the right track. People of Earth, Searched, and Wrecked are shows I recently found and binge watched. I am thrilled that they will be starting 2nd seasons. I will tune in weekly.
I love this show and DVR’d season 1 I watch it over and over and am excited for season 2 great job guys.
I liked it- but I’m still dying to know why all the aliens species banded together. Sidenote- when are they gonna have Don the butt of a Legolas joke?
I don’t know what’s more amazing, that TBS finally has a new show that I actually like based on a subject that’s been asking for it for a long time, takes aliens and gives them a much more believable human wtf attitude complete with a propensity for error, turns it into a comedy with just a tiny bit of no seriously man gotta get to the bottom of this, or that Conan O’Brien has anything to do with it. Glad to see they’re going to do a 2nd season and am trying to find out when TBS will air all… Read more »
I LOVE this show. I just recently saw the whole season of “People of Earth”. The show was playing when I turned the T.V. on. I loved it right away. My daughter who is 20, also loved it .We watched all of season 1 together. Thank God that
there is a season 2. I rarely
like any T.V. shows or movie .
Most are all the same , the plot
and everything in between.
This is a Must See T.V. Show.
The show is brilliant and if the HIBUs (humanoid indigenous biological units) do not work out we always can use Earth as a theme park with casinos for our tourists. Never turn down an opportunity to make a real buck.
Glad to see a network that doesnt cancel a great comedy series after its first year. This is one of my new fav shows to watch.
Wyatt was perfect casting, as were the others. Excitedly waiting for Season2.
Thank you TBS for airing this program
I thought it was terrific. A lot of fun and funny.
No doubt, the best comedy currently airing. Refreshing, clever, talented, funny, endearing, interesting. I watched each episode of season 1 several times and am excited to see season 2. Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.
People of Earth is the BEST comedy show on network TV this season!!! Can’t wait for season two.!
I love it! I’m retired, over 65 but think that the humor makes me feel younger again. Wyatt’s my favorite followed by Ana . Please, please renew.
love, love this show!!!!! ya’ll make my night….thank you!
