The rehearsalthe docu-comedy TV show created by and starring Nathan Fielder, has been renewed for a second season, HBO has announced. The new one came just before the show’s sixth episode and the season one finale on Friday night. “Another chance to get it right,” reads the season 2 tagline, although a premiere date is missing from the announcement.
Apparently, the premise of The rehearsal is that it is a comedy documentary series designed to help ordinary people deal with difficult moments in their lives by giving them a chance to practice it beforehand. But the show approaches this simple premise with a budget and attention to detail that can make the sheer size of each rehearsal feel dizzying, and the show as a whole becomes more and more self-aware as the series progresses.
“Nathan sparked such a lively conversation with The rehearsal‘ said executive vice president of HBO programming Amy Gravitt in a statement. “We have no idea where Season 2 will take us, and that’s the joy of this groundbreaking show from a truly unique talent.”
