No Season 7 for the veteran comedy.
August 20, 2020
It is being reported that Drunk History has been cancelled by Comedy Central after six seasons. The move is somewhat of a surprise, as the cable network had originally ordered Season 7 of the comedy last year.
The show's fate appears to have been affected at least in-part by COVID-19, as word is pre-production on the next season was already in progress when the global pandemic caused a production shutdown in March. And while things were paused, Comedy Central ultimately decided not to continue with the show, which is in-line with its current strategy to focus more on adult animation.
Drunk History was hosted by Derek Waters, who was joined by a rotating cast of actors and comedians as he traveled across the country to present the rich tales behind each city in the land. A little alcohol helps to bring out the truth, even though it may be slightly incoherent.
The show's run was a successful one, as it racked up a total of 70 episodes since its premiere in 2013. It also garnered consistent critical acclaim, as is actually currently nominated for three Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.
I'm truly sad its cancelled .....even with three emmy nominations
Anyone else see the senseless waste of a brilliant well done production ?
