"Drunk History" Cancelled After Six Seasons

 

Believed to be apart of Comedy Central's efforts to get out of live-action scripted series arena, the network has confirmed that Drunk History, which has run for six seasons, has been cancelled. It's most recent season had just aired and was actually renewed for a seventh, but the global pandemic stopped production on it and led Comedy Central to choose instead to cancel the show.


The series saw a changing cast of actors and comedians re-creating historical events and has earned 17 Emmy nominations over the course of its run. The show managed to bring in a wide array of big guest actors including Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Will Ferrell, Tessa Thompson, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. This is not the only show though to suffer this fate by the network. Comedy Central has also moved two of it's other shows, The Other Two and South Side, to HBO Max while Corporate is currently airing its final season. Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens remains their sole original scripted series, but undoubtedly it will soon follow if Comedy Central sticks to this current mandate. Stay tuned!
