Series Airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK, August 18, 2015 - Alert the butlers, it's time to crack open another bottle of cocaine wine as the Bellacourts have reason to celebrate! Comedy Central has renewed the turn-of-the-century historical and satirical scripted series "Another Period" for a second season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Original Programming, Comedy Central. Executive produced by co-stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, director Jeremy Konner and Red Hour's Ben Stiller, Debbie Liebling, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein, the second season of "Another Period" will premiere ten episodes in 2016.

"Another Period is a beautiful reflection of a great American truth: the more things change, the more they stay the same," said Alterman.

"We are thrilled that Comedy Central has such good taste," added Leggero and Lindhome.

Currently airing new episodes on Tuesday nights at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, full episodes from the first season of "Another Period" have been seen by over 9 million total viewers1 with an additional 4.6 million multiplatform clip views.2

Before others claimed their fame, there was one American family that stood for all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid. Meet the Bellacourts - Newport, RI's First Family of the Gilded Age. They have tons of money, live in a big-ass mansion and employ a whole team of Fonzworth Bentleys.

However, the Bellacourts' servants have to do a lot more than hold umbrellas. "Another Period" centers on the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian (Leggero) and Beatrice (Lindhome), who only care about being rich and becoming super famous (which is a lot harder in 1902).

Lauren Ash, Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, Christina Hendricks, Brian Huskey, David Koechner, Jason Ritter, David Wain and Armen Weitzman appear alongside Leggero and Lindhome. Guest stars for the series' first season include Matt Besser, Jack Black, Jon Daly, John Ennis, Kate Flannery, Rich Fulcher, Tim Heidecker, Moshe Kasher, Lauren Lapkus, Thomas Lennon, Kate Micucci, Chris Parnell, Lou Diamond Phillips, Missi Pyle, Will Sasso, Betsy Sodaro, Shoshannah Stern, Ben Stiller, Stephen Tobolowsky and Brian White.

Fans can follow "Another Period" on Facebook for new clips and updates throughout the season and interact with Leggero (@natashaleggero) and Lindhome (@rikilindhome) on Twitter.

"Another Period" is written by, executive produced by and stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, is executive produced and directed by Jeremy Konner ("Drunk History") and executive produced by Red Hour's Ben Stiller, Debbie Liebling, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein. Monika Zielinska and Tara Schuster are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
