Hulu orders more of the half-hour comedy.
November 10, 2022
Hulu announced today that This Fool has been renewed for a second season. The news comes three months after the comedy released its freshman run to a positive reception from both critics and viewers.
Inspired by the life and stand-up of star and co-creator Chris Estrada, the half-hour series follows 30-year-old Julio Lopez, who still lives at home in working class South Central Los Angeles. He has been dating his girlfriend on and off since high school and always finds an excuse to avoid dealing with his own problems. Julio works at Hugs Not Thugs, a gang rehabilitation non-profit, where he butts heads with his older cousin Luis, an ex-gang member who recently got out of prison and moved in with Julio and his family.
