• Broad City surprises superfans during fifth and final season

    broad city final season posterThe final season of Broad City will have at least one shocking twist. A promotional video from Comedy Central depicts Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer posing as male crew members—facial hair and all—and surprising Broad City superfans. Producers told the fans they were just being interviewed about their love of the show.

    The clip shows a strong bond between the fans of the show and the stars. Glazer and Jacobson chill in the background of the video reacting to fan answers to questions about why they love the show, or how they would end it.

    “Honestly, I just hope Abbi and Ilana get married,” said one fan, as the stars looked to each other and smiled.

    Eventually, the real crew stops the shoot because of a supposed lighting issue, and Jacobson and Glazer pretend to come out to fix it. Soon, the wigs come off and the hugs begin.

    “Oh, my god, feel my heart,” said one Broad City superfan. “Were you guys the ones that were over there the whole time?”

    The Other Two fills in behind Broad City final season

    New episodes air Thursdays at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central. This week’s episode, titled Artsy Fartsy, will be the fifth episode of the final season. In it, “Abbi gets invited to a fancy art event at MoMA; Ilana and Lincoln have a one-year relationship check-in,” says the Comedy Central website.

    Following Broad City is Comedy Central’s freshman series The Other Two, which is about two siblings who are trying to manage their own careers while also dealing with feelings of jealousy about their young brother’s new internet fame. The Other Two is crushing it with critics and is already confirmed for a second season as Comedy Central prepares for a post-Broad City world.
