Carlos Alazraqui won’t stop serving and protecting… and bringing the funny… just yet.
Quibi has ordered a second season of its Emmy-nominated revival of acclaimed comedy series Reno 911!, starring the 58-year-old Argentine American actor.
The rebook, which debuted in early May, reunites the original cast. The second batch of Season 1’s 25 episodes bowed last week.
Reno 911! lets viewers ride along with the courageous men and women of the Reno Sheriff’s Department as they lay down the law and put it all on the line. The camera doesn’t blink — and when danger is near, the Reno Sheriff’s Department will be nearer.
In addition to Alazraqui, the core original cast of the mockumentary series includes Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Niecy Nash, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Cedric Yarbrough, Ian Roberts, Joe Lo Truglio and Mary Birdsong.
“We are thrilled about the pickup, but we’re even more thrilled about getting to leave our living rooms for the first time in five months,” series co-creators Lennon, Ben Garant and Kenney-Silver said in a joint statement.
Reno 911! ran for six seasons from 2003-09 on Comedy Central.
Reno 911! is vying for Primetime Emmys this month in two categories: Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series and Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for Kenney-Silver.
