Drunk History has released a trailer for its upcoming sixth season on Comedy Central. The show, which features comedians getting hammered and recounting historical events while an all-star revolving cast reenacts them, returns on January 15 with a parody of the popular Nickelodeon show Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and dealing with the story of the creation of Frankenstein.
The first episode will feature Evan Rachel Wood, Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, and Jack McBrayer. The trailer also gives us a sneak peek at some future episodes in the season, such as the story of the Little Rock Nine and school integration, the creation of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, an escape from West Germany, the creation of Ethnic Studies, and early LGTBQ activists.
Created by Derek Waters, Drunk History premiered on Comedy Central in 2013 after starting as a Funny Or Die web series in 2007. Drunk History has been a ratings winner for Comedy Central and has eleven Emmy nominations (with one win). Comedy Central had one of its strongest years in recent memory in 2018 and Drunk History is one of four major season launches in January, the others being Corporate, Broad City’s final season, and The Other Two’s first season. Comedy Central hopes to start the year off with a bang and ride 2018’s strong ratings into an even better 2019.
The first episode of Drunk History Season 6 will air on Tuesday, January 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
