Both good and bad news for fans of Jordan Klepper. Deadline reports Comedy Central has cancelled the TV show after one season but has ordered a new series with the former Daily Show correspondent.
A late-night comedy series, The Opposition starred Klepper as an alt-right media provocateur, satirizing the hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape.”
Althought Comedy Central has cancelled The Opposition, they’ve ordered a new weekly series with Klepper that “will feature the comedian out in the field, traveling the country and speaking to people.”
The final episode of The Opposition with Jordan Klepper will air on June 28th at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. Klepper’s new series is slated to debut on Comedy Central in 2019.
I couldn’t be more proud of the staff that we have at The Opposition, and the new show is going to have people from The Opposition and the talent that we have there is going to help build this show as well.”
What do you think? Do you watch The Opposition? Will you watch Klepper’s new series?
