Comedy Central renews “Broad City” for season 3 ahead of tonight’s second-season premiere

Broad City kicks off its second season tonight, but Comedy Central already announced that we’ll enjoy more adventures with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer in 2016 with an early renewal today for 10 episodes of season 3!

“It has just been brought to my attention that ‘Broad City’ is a female-centric show, but we’re going to do more anyway,” said Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, Comedy Central.

The real 2 Broke Girls of Brooklyn and Queens, Jacobson and Glazer are joined by regular co-stars Hannibal Buress, Arturo Castro, Paul Downs, John Gemberling, Chris Gethard and Stephen Schneider. Guest stars during this second season will include Bob Balaban, Aidy Bryant, Patricia Clarkson, Susie Essman, Janeane Garofalo, Kumail Nanjiani, Kelly Ripa, Seth Rogen, Amy Ryan, Alia Shawkat and David Wain.

Here’s a teaser!

Beginning today, fans of the show can download a free “Broad City Keyboard” App which features show-specific emojis and episodic GIFs. Among them? Stars Abbi, Ilana, and Lincoln; food items like a bagel, taco, hotdog, and rotisserie chicken; and other show-inspired emojis including a joint, condom and the middle finger. Initial GIFs available include Ilana dancing, Garol eating yogurt, Abbi and Ilana drumming, and the “Eight F**king Thousand Dollars” dream sequence at the bank. Each Thursday, the “Broad City” App will be updated with new emojis and GIFs from the previous night’s episode. The free iOS app is available now and can be downloaded via the iTunes App Store.
