You can count on more cats dressed as Blues Brothers, Lil’ Picassos and extreme close-ups of snack foods, because NBC has renewed Hollywood Game Night for a 10-episode second season.
In picking up the star-studded series — which will return next summer or possibly sooner, per Deadline — NBC’s President of Alternative and Late Night Programming praised host Jane Lynch and the lineup of celebs who thus far have participated.
“Hollywood Game Night allows the audience to take a seat on the couch next to their favorite celebrities and enjoy the pandemonium and exuberance of the colorful cast … in each episode,” Paul Telegdy said in a statement. “Jane and her friends know how to throw a party, and we’re thrilled viewers have come to play too.”
Season 1′s celeb guests have included Kristin Bell, Rose Byrne, Nick Cannon, Kristin Chenoweth, Minnie Driver, Patricia Heaton, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Martin Short and Jason Sudeikis.
Hollywood Game Night – currently airing Thursdays at 10/9c — is produced by Todd Milliner and Sean Hayes, the latter of which based the show on his real-life game night parties.
