While viewership remained consistent through its first two seasons and the quality of sketches only improved, Kroll Show will come to an end on Comedy Central after its third season, set to premiere Jan. 13 at 10:30 pm ET. But this is no time for mourning. Comedy Central promises that Nick Kroll’s best known characters will find a proper end to their fictional journeys. According to Comedy Central, “Bobby Bottleservice plays an elaborate game with his fellow gigolos to determine who will be kicked out of the house; Gil and George pull a “Too Much Tuna” prank on their favorite doctor; Liz leaves town to grow out her bangs and join a team of gold miners in the mountains; Mikey gets addicted to pills and explores his sexuality on “Wheels Ontario”; the Rich Dicks open a restaurant; and Dr. Armond pursues his wife’s killer in Europe.” Check out the official series ending announcement from
Nick Kroll Liz of PubLIZity.
“As we started to get towards the end of the season, it just became clear that we wrapped up a lot of the stories and characters that we had created, and felt like we had brought a number of them to their natural conclusion,” Kroll told Vulture. “So, as opposed to stringing out more seasons, we wanted to feel like we were going out with the best work that we’ve done. As I’m sure you’ve watched a lot of shows you’ve loved continue to make shows because they could and the quality began to dwindle.”
Like the first two seasons, Nick Kroll will be joined by Jenny Slate, Chelsea Peretti, Jon Daly, John Mulaney. But we’ll also see some stellar guest turns by the likes of Aziz Ansari, Paget Brewster, Paul F. Tompkins, Kurt Braunohler, Bill Burr, Bo Burnham, Lauren Lapkus, Jason Mantzoukas, Nathan Fielder, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Pally, Andy Milonakis, Amy Poehler, Casey Wilson, Derek Waters, Ron Funches, Brett Gelman, Seth Rogen and Kristen Schaal.
On Dec. 9, Comedy Central Records will release Kroll Show: For The Record, which will feature tracks from Kroll’s musically inclined characters Sloppy Secondz (“LA Deli”), Wheels Ontario star Bryan LaCroix and more.
