With Broad City coming to an end, it’s expected that Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson will go out on a wildly insane “YAAAAAAAAS KWEEN!” bang — and based on the trailer for the final season ahead of its Jan. 24 premiere on Comedy Central, they are going to deliver the goods.
Actually, the trailer doesn’t give us many details about what we could expect from our favorite New York scheming stoners with hearts of gold. We see flashes of scenes from the fifth and final season which starts off with Ilana surprising Abbi by brushing her teeth while topless; Abbi kissing Rachel Dratch in a porkpie hat; Ilana dodging a bagel Matrix-style; some bra shopping, questionable art criticism, pasta tasting with Hannibal Burress, and kissing a stranger’s child. It all seems on brand for the comedy duo.
“No matter what the outcome, I feel completely at peace,” says a voiceover during the teaser.
As an added bonus, Broad City is partnering with online bidding site Screenbid to auction off rare props, wardrobes, set decorations, and other iconic items from the show. For the first time in Screenbid history, 100% of the revenue will go to a nonprofit. Abbi and Ilana selected Lemontree, a New York City nonprofit that helps low-income families set the table with a dignified, affordable and healthy dinner. That said, get your bidding paddles ready because the auction is set to go live later this month.
To add even more advocacy to the mix, there will be a Broad City-inspired collection available for purchase at Bulletin, a New York City store that is stocked with over 100 female-run brands. The sale will kick off Thursday and run through Jan. 31. For each purchase, a portion of the proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood of New York City.
