HBO has renewed Nathan Fielder’s comedy series The Rehearsal for a second season. The announcement comes ahead of the season one finale, which airs tonight on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
The first season, which consists of six episodes, premiered on HBO and HBO Max on July 15, 2022.
HBO describes The Rehearsal as exploring the lengths one man will go to reduce the uncertainties of everyday life.
With a construction crew, a legion of actors, and seemingly unlimited resources, Fielder allows ordinary people to prepare for life’s biggest moments by “rehearsing” them in carefully-crafted simulations of his own design. When a single misstep could shatter your entire world, why leave life to chance?
“Nathan has sparked such a lively conversation with The Rehearsal,” says Amy Gravitt, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming.
“We have no idea where season 2 will take us, and that is the delight of this boundary pushing show from a truly singular talent.”
Nathan Fielder, whose credits include Nathan for You and HBO’s How to with John Wilson, serves as executive producer, writer, director and star.
Clark Reinking is executive producer (episode 101); Dave Paige is executive producer (episodes 102-106); Christie Smith and Dan McManus executive produce for Rise Management.
