A new trailer for American Vandal season 2 is here. Netflix found themselves a special and hilarious hit with the first season of American Vandal. Capitalizing on the popularity of true crime documentary shows, like their own Making a Murderer, the streaming service released the first season of the brilliant satire last year. Now, we have our first look at the sophomore season, which asks a very important question; who is the Turd Burglar?
In the first season of American Vandal, we followed a scandal at a high school involving a whole bunch of cars being vandalized with phallic imagery. Season 2 is sticking with the lowbrow theme and it appears as though that was the right way to go about it. This season will attempt to solve the mystery of a contaminated lunch incident at a Catholic school that results in a bunch of students soiling themselves in a pretty public and messy manner. Lowbrow as it may be, the fact that the trailer takes itself and the material so seriously makes this look like another truly hilarious season to look forward to. Here's the official synopsis for American Vandal season 2.
"Having left its red spray-painted mark on pop culture with a breakout freshman season, American Vandal returns with an explosive new case, a (mostly) new cast and solid new conspiracy theories. Season 2 of the Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning true-crime satire follows documentarians Peter Maldonado and Sam Ecklund as they bring their investigative skills to an elite Catholic school where someone has been taking poop-related pranks to new heights. From co-creators Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault, and showrunner Dan Lagana, American Vandal's addictive second season will have everyone speculating: Who is the Turd Burglar?"
This season also comes with the tagline, "Milk, milk, lemonade...around the corner, justice is made." While season 2 will be bringing back Peter and Sam to investigate the mysterious Turd Burglar, the new season will feature a new cast. That cast includes Tyler Alvarez (Peter), Griffin Gluck (Sam), Travis Tope (Kevin), Taylor Dearden (Chloe), Melvin Gregg (DeMarcus) and DeRon Horton (Lou). Showrunner Dan Lagana has returned behind the scenes. Executive producers for the series include Tony Yacenda, Daniel Perrault, Joe Farrell, Ari Lubet, Josh Lieberman and Michael Rotenberg, alongside Lagana.
The series is produced for Netflix by CBS Television Studios, Funny Or Die and 3Arts. The trailer also comes with the reveal that American Vandal season 2 will make its debut on September 14. That puts it out almost exactly a year after the show's first season, which arrived on September 15, 2017. It also means that we're only going to have to wait a few weeks to binge the new season. Netflix has a habit of promoting things much closer to their actual release than traditional studios.
