With Netflix desperate to create for themselves a vast database of original content, it looks as though they may have hit the comedy motherload, with sleeper hit I Think You Should Leave having been renewed for a second series.
Set to arrive on Netflix on July 6th, I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson will look to continue the off-the-wall vibe of the original series created by Detroiters star Tim Robinson. Garnering bold critical praise upon the release of its first series, for the show’s unfaltering originality and dedication to experimental ideas, many of the ideas consisted of sketches rejected by NBC during Robinson’s time as a comedy writer on Saturday Night Live.
Premiering on Netflix in April 2019, the show’s first series featured guest appearances from Steven Yeun, Andy Samberg, Cecily Strong, Will Forte, Vanessa Bayer and the late Fred Willard among a wider cast of eclectic comedians.
The new trailer for the second season of the show sees Robinson joined by new cast members Bob Odenkirk, Mike O’Brien and Gary Richardson, and teases a series that shares a similar tone with the original, with loud, erratic sketches utilising whacky prosthetics and fantasy creatures.
It makes the second piece of promotional content for the new series, with Netflix having shared another trailer for the new season earlier this month. The previous trailer showed Robinson and frequent collaborator Sam Richardson perform a variety of songs from the shows first series whilst on a cabaret stage.
Speaking of the freedom that Netflix gives to its creatives, Robinson commented: “That’s only to benefit the artists. You’re right, then you can fall on your own sword if it doesn’t go well, but when you get over-noted at some places you have some sort of resentment towards the network or the executives, whereas it’s better Netflix lets people go and do their own thing.”
