Craig Robinson will kill for Peacock again.
The NBCUniversal-backed streamer has renewed the second season of its Robinson-led comedy To kill him. The comedy, from Universal Television, debuted in April and revolves around one man’s quest to achieve the American Dream – and hunt some really big snakes.
To kill him was picked up straight-to-series in July 2020 and is created by Brooklyn nine-nine showrunner Dan Goor and his number 2, Luke Del Tredici. The duo serve as co-showrunners and executive produce alongside B99of the former Pontiac Bandit, Robinson.
“We knew we had a rare pearl with To kill him and are thrilled that Peacock audiences have taken a bite out of this series, helmed by comedic legend Craig Robinson,” said Susan Rovner, president of entertainment content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We look forward to telling more twists about one person’s hilarious and persistent pursuit of the American Dream, the incomparable creative minds of Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici and our partners at UTV, as Peacock continues to be a home for unique, thought-provoking and humorous comedies.
To kill him is part of a list of Peacock comedies that also includes the winner of Peabody We are LadyParts, Girls5eva and Rutherford Falls. The renewal keeps Goor — who has called Universal Television home for years — with two shows on the air after Rovner also renewed his NBC comedy, great crew, for a second season last month.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone at Universal Television and Peacock. ‘Snake-based economic satire’ isn’t exactly a familiar and beloved TV comedy genre, but they were fully behind the project from the start. We look forward to doing more!” Goor and Del Tredici said in a joint statement Wednesday.
Robinson leads a cast that also includes Claudia O’Doherty, Rell Battle, Scott MacArthur, Stephanie Nogueras, Wyatt Walter and Jet Miller.
