Comedy Central has renewed upcoming series Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens for a second season about a week before its series premiere.
“We are in awe of Awkwafina’s creative genius on every level and we could not be more excited to embark on a season two with the entire Lin family in Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens,” said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Co-Heads of Original Content.
From Karey Dornetto (Portlandia) and Teresa Hsiao (American Dad!), Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens follows 20-something Nora Lin (Awkwafina, who also co-created the series) as she leans on her family while navigating life and young adulthood in outer borough-NYC. The series chronicles her search for a larger than life existence.
In addition to its Golden Globe winning leading lady, the series stars BD Wong (Mr. Robot), Lori Tan Chinn (Orange Is the New Black), and Bowen Yang (Saturday Night Live).
The series premiere is set for Wednesday, January 22nd at 10:30 on Comedy Central.
