Ramy and PEN15 Renewed for Second Seasons by Hulu

-

Following the success of Hulu’s 2019 new comedy slate, the streaming service has ordered second seasons of PEN15, Ramy and previously announced, Shrill. All three new series broke through by generating passionate fan bases and critical reception.

After debuting to rave reviews, Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle return to star in a 14-episode, second season of adult comedy, PEN15. Playing versions of themselves as 13-year-old outcasts in the year 2000, the series features Erskine and Konkle surrounded by actual 13-year olds where the best day of their lives can turn into the worst with the stroke of a gel pen.

PEN15 is created, written and executive produced by Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle and Sam Zvibleman; Debbie Liebling will serve as executive producer alongside Marc Provissiero and Brooke Pobjoy from Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment, Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer of The Lonely Island and Becky Sloviter of Party Over Here. PEN15 is produced by AwesomenessTV.

Hulu’s critically-acclaimed comedy series Ramy has been picked up for a 10-episode second season. The groundbreaking series follows first-generation, Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. Ramy brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a Muslim community who believes life is a moral test and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences.

Ramy is written, executive produced, created by and starring Youssef, executive produced by Jerrod Carmichael, A24’s Ravi Nandan, co-creators Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, and produced by A24.
