Hulu is bringing back quirky supernatural comedy “Deadbeat,” with the second season of the original series produced by Lionsgate Television set to debut April 20 for the Internet-streaming service’s premium subscribers.
The show’s season two premiere will come nearly a full year after Hulu announced the renewal for the show at the 2014 Digital Content NewFronts in New York in April 2014. All 13 episodes will be available on the Hulu Plus subscription service on April 20.
“Deadbeat” stars Tyler Labine (“Monsters University,” “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) as medium-for-hire Kevin Pacalioglu, who tries to solve unresolved worldly problems of dead people so they can rest in peace.
“Deadbeat” season two will feature guest stars including James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zach Levi and Finn Wittrock.
Created by Cody Heller and Brett Konner (“Wilfred,” “The Inbetweeners”), “Deadbeat” is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment and Dakota Pictures. Executive producers are Heller; Konner; Dan Lagana (“Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous”), who also serves as showrunner; and Plan B’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. Co-executive producers are Sarah Esberg, Don Poquette and David Baldy.
