Peacock Renews 'Bupkis' for Season 2

Peacock has today renewed its original comedy series Bupkis for a second season. An episode count and which cast will return were not immediately announced.

The comedy stars Pete Davidson, Edie Falco and Joe Pesci.

Davidson co-created the comedy with Judah Miller and Dave Sirus. They executive produce with Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Erin David. Universal Television and Broadway Video produce.

"Pete Davidson is a once-in-a-generation talent, and what he created with the first season of Bupkis absolutely blew us away," said Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "Pete has the rare ability to make you laugh out loud with his unfiltered brand of comedy, and then tear up with his raw and honest vulnerability. We could not be more proud to continue on this journey with Pete, Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video, and our partners at Universal Television for a second season as we continue to bolster Peacock's comedy slate."
