HBO Max Renews 'That Damn Michael Che' for Season 2

HBO Max has today renewed its original sketch comedy series That Damn Michael Che for a second season. The comedy will likely return with new episodes in 2022.

The first season starred Michael Che, Cecily Strong, Heidi Gardner, Colin Quinn, Ellen Cleghorne and Colin Jost, with guest stars Omari Hardwick, Geoffrey Owens, Godfrey, Method Man and Billy Porter.

Che created the series. He executive produce with Lorne Michaels, Erin Doyle and director Oz Rodriguez. Universal Television, Broadway Video and Irony Point produce.

"Michael's comedic style is truly unique and his ability to convey provocative subject matter through a comedic lens is the reason why Season 1 of That Damn Michael Che was such a success," said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max. "We look forward to working with him again on a second season."
