Hulu Sets April 20 Release Date For ‘Deadbeat’ Season Two

5 March 2015 12:21 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has more stories to tell about an apathetic New York City dude who sees ghosts. The streaming video platform announced its original supernatural comedy series Deadbeat will return for a second season on April 20, 2015.

Deadbeat features Kevin (played by Tyler Labine), a medium who is competent at helping ghosts complete their unfinished business but utterly incapable of making his own life better. Season two will include special guest stars James Franco (who just signed on to star in Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of a Stephen King novel), Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Zach Levi, Gilbert Gottfried, Finn Wittrock, and Jim Norton.

When Deadbeat debuted back in April 2014, we noted how Kevin’s lazy behavior and appearance appeals to the binge-watching, pot-smoking crowd. It seems appropriate, then, that Hulu has opted to release Deadbeat season two on 4/20, a day renowned for marijuana smoking. The teaser and key art »

James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen & More Guest Starring on Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2, Teaser Video Revealed

5 March 2015 10:30 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, but on the plus side, he has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series that debuted last year with a stellar 10-episode season. Channeling his excellent horror comedy performances in Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Reaper, Labine makes for a delightfully unconventional ghost whisperer who will be joined by an interesting lineup of guest stars in the sophomore season that's slated to premiere in April.

Deadline reports that James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock play guest starring roles in Deadbeat’s second season. TVLine revealed in January that Levi plays the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in the ninth episode of season two, but it's uncertain at this time who the other guest actors play, though you can »

Someone find the phone! The Camp Firewood counselors always said they would meet again 10 years after their last day at camp, but it looks like they're going back in time instead. That's right.

28 January 2015 6:52 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Even though news surfaced that the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer was set to return for Netflix’s original TV series, it wasn’t officially confirmed by the streaming network until it released a 50-second teaser touting most of the original stars’ names.

The returning cast includes: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.
