Crashing Season 2 is on its Way


More Pete Holmes and Judd Apatow are on the way

Although it’s going to take a little more time to work its way up the comedy ladder of HBO, Crashing has proven itself to be a strong contender thus far. Pete Holmes’ new series about a comic trying to find his way has been a great watch so far. That’s good, because HBO has confirmed that Crashing season 2 is coming.

HBO has renewed the Pete Holmes and Judd Apatow series for a second season. HBO’s Executive Vice President of Programming, Amy Gravitt, announced the news in an official press release:

"“Pete and Judd have proven to be the ultimate ambassadors for the standup comedy world,” noted Gravitt. “I’m delighted by the response to the show and am thrilled to welcome them back for a second season.”"

Judd Apatow has had a string of success lately. Girls, which he produces (and can occasionally be seen in the Inside the Episode clips) is in its final season, Netflix’s Love  has been renewed for a third season, and now Crashing is coming back around for season 2. It’s worth noting that Crashing’s first season hasn’t ended yet – in fact, it won’t be over until early April. It’s become unusual now for HBO to renew a series before its season is over. Veep, HBO’s mega-hit comedy, still has to wait until the end of a season to get the renewal go-ahead.

There is also the now infamous situation of HBO renewing Vinyl early for a second season and then dropping it entirely. To be fair, Crashing is considerably cheaper to produce than Vinyl, which came from both Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger. HBO has had great success with new series lately, and has so far chosen to renew all of them (Insecure, Crashing, Divorce, Westworld.) Don’t look to far ahead, though, as Crashing still has over half of its season left.
