Peacock Renews 'Rutherford Falls' for Season 2

Peacock has today renewed its original comedy series Rutherford Falls for a second season. The comedy will return with new episodes in 2022.

The comedy stars Ed Helms, Jana Schmieding, Michael Greyeyes, Jesse Leigh and Dustin Milligan.

Helms co-created the comedy with Michael Schur and Sierra Teller Ornelas. They executive produce with Mike Falbo, David Miner and Morgan Sackett. Universal Television, Fremulon, 3 Arts Entertainment and Pacific Electric Picture Company produce.

"We are so proud to be a part of Rutherford Falls, a smart comedy and a breakthrough moment for Native representation in comedy both in front of and behind the camera," said Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "Rutherford Falls embodies the modern, original, and inclusive storytelling viewers want and we are excited to develop season two alongside Sierra, Mike, Ed and the incredible cast."

"We are beyond ecstatic for Season 2!" added Ornelas. "I'm probably slightly biased, but Rutherford Falls is made by the best writers, cast, and crew, on earth. Not to mention Ed Helms and Mike Schur, two of the nicest guys in the business. We are very grateful to the folks at Universal Television and Peacock for continuing to champion Indigenous comedies."
