Peacock just announced that Craig Robinson’s Killing It series is getting a season 1.
Susan Rovner, chairman of Entertainment Content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said this about the series renewal: “We knew we had a rare gem with ‘Killing It’ and are thrilled Peacock audiences sank their teeth into this series, led by comedic legend Craig Robinson. We can’t wait to tell more twists and turns of one person’s hilarious, persistent pursuit of the American dream, from the incomparable creative minds of Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici and our partners at UTV, as Peacock continues to be a home for unique, thought-provoking and humor-filled comedies.“
Dan Goor and Luke Del Tredici, creators of the show, said: “We are immensely grateful to everyone at Universal Television and Peacock. ‘Snake-based economic satire’ isn’t exactly a familiar, beloved genre of television comedy, but they were fully behind the project from the start. We can’t wait to make more!“
Erin Underhill, president of Universal Television, added: “At its heart, ‘Killing It’ demonstrates the wild ride we are willing to take when we are passionate about something, while also reminding us to support one another…because there are a lot of snakes out there! This series is a compassionate and hilarious comedy that anyone who has ever been in pursuit of a dream can relate to; that’s what makes it so special. We’re excited that Peacock has embraced this distinct show and look forward to continuing our partnership with Dan, Luke, Craig, Claudia, and the rest of this fantastic team on a season two.“
Killing It is a comedy series that stars Craig Robinson, Claudia O’Doherty, Rell Battle, Scott MacArthur, and Stephanie Nogueras. The pilot episode premiered on Peacock on March 31, 2022, while the rest of the season premiered on April 14. The series is a comedy about class, capitalism, and one man’s quest to achieve the American dream. And also about hunting really big snakes.
