"Broad City" is riding high: Comedy Central has renewed the series for a third season on the eve of its season two debut.
The series, which stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer and is co-produced by Amy Poehler, has been a huge hit for the network, with Variety reporting that the series was the most-watched show in its timeslot among men ages 18-34 in 2014, and was also the year's highest-rated freshman cable comedy series in that same demographic.
"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 of content development and original programming at Comedy Central, in a statement announcing the renewal.
Season two of "Broad City," which also stars Hannibal Buress, Arturo Castro, Paul Downs, John Gemberling, Chris Gethard, and Stephen Schneider, debuts Thursday on Comedy Central at 10:30 p.m.
