The Bellacourts are heading back to Newport, Rhode Island! Well, actually, they’ve never left. It’s Comedy Central, the network that airs the early 20th Century family’s (mis)adventures, that is the one doing the heading back to that upper-middle-class estate. Or is it more accurate to say that CC is cranking the engine back up? Anyway, the point is, Another Period is returning for Season 3, and a trailer is here!
The hook of Another Period, which was created by and stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome as a couple of vain and wacky socialite sisters, is that it examines American’s discriminatory culture of a hundred years ago by blowing it out to outrageous proportions and drawing parallels to how prejudicial nonsense still exists today.
The Season 3 trailer gives us quite a dense taste of that routine, with a focus on the gains that women are making, as they fight for the rights to vote and wear pants while dealing with plenty of pushback. What’s next, some men wonder? “Women’s shoes? Medicine, but for women?”
As with many other Comedy Central shows, the main cast, recurring cast, and guest star lists are overflowing with some of the biggest names in comedy. Besides Lindhome and Leggero, the stars include Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Beth Dover, Brett Gelman, Alice Hunter, Brian Huskey, Jason Ritter, David Wain and Armen Weitzman, while returning and new guest stars include Donna Lynne Champlin, Jon Daly, Nancy Friedrich, Moshe Kasher, Kate Micucci, Missi Pyle, Will Sasso, Betsy Sodaro, Steve Agee, Doug Benson, Kate Berlant, Rachel Blanchard, Lauren Bowles, Steve Byrne, Jemaine Clement, John Early, Bridget Everett, Fortune Feimster, Kate Flannery, Tom Lenk, Thomas Lennon, Samm Levine, Randy Liedtke, Andy Kindler, David Koechner, Gilles Marini, Chelsea Peretti, Patton Oswalt, Gil Ozeri, Richard Riehle, Vincent Rodriguez III, Paul Scheer, Rory Scovel, Beth Stelling, Paul F.
