For those who take Drunk History perhaps a little more seriously than others, we’ll say this slowly and clearly: Comedy Central has released a trailer for the series’ fifth season, which will begin at 10 PM January 23. Watch it below.
The cable net also said today that Season 3 of its comedy series Another Period will premiere after at 10:30 PM.
The seven-episode new season of Drunk History will kick off with an episode described thusly: Tiffany Haddish narrates museum curator Rose Valland’s (Busy Philipps) risky quest to save Europe’s masterpieces from the Nazis; Paget Brewster slurs her way through the story of Deborah Sampson (Evan Rachel Wood), the first woman to take a bullet for America during the Revolutionary War; and Amber Ruffin recalls the bravery of Clara Barton (Mandy Moore), “The Angel of the Battlefield” who founded the American Red Cross with the help of surgeon James Dunn (Alexander Skarsgård) and Abraham Lincoln (Jack McBrayer).
Created for television by Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner, Drunk History is produced by Central Productions and executive produced by Waters and Konner, along with
Gary Sanchez Productions’ Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Owen Burke.
Another Period tells the story of the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice (played by the show’s co-creators/writers/exec producers Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome), who are defined by their family’s wealth and care only about becoming super famous – which is a lot harder in 1902.
