‘People of Earth’ and ‘Search Party’ Renewed for Season Two on TBS

The Pair Join the Previously Renewed “Angie Tribeca,” “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” “The Detour” and "Wrecked"

TBS has announced 10-episode second season renewals for comedies “People of Earth” and “Search Party.” Debuting on Oct. 31, “People of Earth” focuses on a support group for alien abductees. And “Search Party,” which opened on Nov. 21, follows four self-absorbed twenty-somethings who become entangled in an ominous mystery when a former college acquaintance suddenly disappears.

The two half-hours join the network’s previous 2016 renewals of “Angie Tribeca,” “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” “The Detour” and “Wrecked,” in addition to comedy mainstays Conan and American Dad!

  1. I’d love to know why Samantha Bee is getting te red carpet at TBS.

    She is completely unfunny (her “humor” is limited to insulting people she doesn’t like…) and yet has a talk show and unfunny low-rated monstrosity “The Detour”.

    Speaking of low-rated duds, People of Earth and Search Party fit quite neatly.

    What do they all have in common?

    Fake-edginess.

    That “style” of not-recognizably-human characters, acting over-the-top quirks that are supposed to be oh-so-edgy and yet come across as flat as North Dakota (I decided to go with a safe one!)

    TBS is lucky to have BBT and Seinfeld re-runs to keep afloat.
