CBS All Access has renewed the cop comedy “No Activity” for a second season, the streaming service announced Tuesday.

The first original comedy series to launch on CBS’ streaming service, “No Activity” is set against the world of a major drug cartel bust.

The cast of the first season included series co-developer Patrick Brammall along with Tim Meadows, with guest stars Mark Berry, Arturo Castro, Mackenzie Davis, Bridget Everett, Will Ferrell, Darren Gilshenan, Travis Guba, Jake Johnson, Sunita Mani, Jason Mantzoukas, Adrian Martinez, Jesse Plemons, Fred Pohl, Alex Rodriguez, Amy Sedaris, J.K. Simmons, Courtenay Taylor, Michaela Watkins, and Daniel Zolghadri.

Why “New Girl” Needs a Series for College Nick and Schmidt

Since “New Girl” arrived on Netflix, it has been binge-watched by millions of viewers who have pretty similar feelings about the show: it is amazing. With the perfect combination of ‘90s sweetness (think Full House hugs and lessons learned) and smart, witty banter (think The Office without the dryness) this show really knocks audiences off their feet with comedy. “New Girl” follows a story of Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel) who finds herself moving into a loft apartment with three rather different men. Two of these men, Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield), have been buddies since they were

‘Easy’ Season 2 Trailer: Same City, New Positions

One of today’s foremost purveyors of “mumblecore” cinema – a derisive pigeonholing label for low budget indies which often involve the Duplass Brothers and sonorous dialogue – Joe Swanberg has managed to carve out a special niche for himself with his low-key hangout films, usually made in collaboration with “New Girl” actor Jake Johnson, such as the charming “Drinking Buddies” and “Digging for Fire.” Swanberg and Johnson scored their biggest mainstream success to date with this year’s Netflix original feature “Win It All” starring Johnson as a raffish gambling addict, and Swanberg is carrying on the momentum of his newfound recognition with a second season of his Netflix anthology series “Easy.”

Set in Swanberg’s beloved native Chicago, the first season of “Easy” adhered to a loose template following the sex lives of a disparate collection of couples and singles, with the episodes usually depicting a self-contained misadventure, such as
