‘Comicstaan’ picked up for second season
Amazon Prime Original series Comicstaan has been renewed for a second season.
Amazon on Monday announced its decision to greenlight season two of Comicstaan, just weeks after its worldwide premiere on July 13. It will return to the platform next year.
Created in association with Only Much Louder (OML), Comicstaan season two will feature Zakir Khan in addition to Tanmay Bhat, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Kanan Gill, Kenny Sebastian, Kaneez Surka, Sumukhi Suresh and Abish Mathew who will be returning for the season.
Comicstaan season one, a nine-episode series, saw ten upcoming comedians from across the country compete for the winning title and be mentored by the best comedians in India. A new episode releases every Friday.
“We are delighted to bring a second season of this exceptional series that discovers and mentors new comedy talent in India... Our customers’ response to the series is the key factor in our enthusiasm to bring our audience another season — with indeed a fresh dose of laughter, jokes and even more fresh comic talent,” said Vijay Subramaniam, director and head of content, Amazon Prime Video India.
