Three Busy Debras Getting a Whole Lot Busier with Season 2 Renewal

Looks like the best new show on Adult Swim so far this year is going to have to get ready to get a bit busier, with Sandy Honig (Isn't It Romantic), Mitra Jouhari (Friends From College, High Maintenance) and Alyssa Stonoha's (Rules of Cool) Three Busy Debras is getting a green light for a second season. The news comes two weeks after the twisted Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation)-produced comedy wrapped up its six-episode first season, which ended its initial run averaging approximately 543,000 viewers for the initial Sunday late-night airings (a solid "live" number for Adult Swim).

Created by series stars Honig, Jouhari, and Stonoha, Three Busy Debras shines a spotlight on the surreal day-to-day lives of three deranged housewives, all named Debra, in their affluent suburban town of Lemoncurd, Connecticut. The trio first developed the project as a play before shifting to a web series, with Adult Swim ordering a pilot in 2018 and giving the okay for a series the following year.
