Workaholics season five, Broad City season two get premiere dates

The lovable and often times felonious acts of coworkers and roommates “Adam,” “Blake” and “Ders” will return in their Comedy Central hit scripted series “Workaholics” for the show’s fifth season on Wednesday, January 14 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second season premiere of “Broad City” at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. This season the guys create more chaos in Rancho Cucamonga as they help “Ders” get even with an old high school swim rival, organize an office ditch day at their house, start a front yard wrestling league to pay the rent, recruit new employees at a college job fair, compete in an inter-office blood drive and help “Adam” say goodbye to the single life in proper style. Returning for the fifth season are TelAmeriCorp officemates “Jillian” (Jillian Bell), “Alice” (Maribeth Monroe) and “Montez” (Erik Griffin), along with their drug-dealing friend “Karl” (Kyle Newacheck). Special guest appearances this season include Curtis Armstrong, Tim Bagley, Jack Black, Dolph Lundgren, Jerry O’Connell, Alan Ritchson, Michael Urie and Amy Yasbeck.

“Broad City” is coming back with a new season of ten episodes that will see Abbi and Ilana dealing with a slew of everyday challenges and adventures as they live their lives in New York City, including: Abbi’s Bed, Bath And Beyond obsession; technology overload; a special romance; Ilana’s family; and holding down their jobs at Soulstice and Deals, Deals, Deals. The season two premiere of “Broad City” debuts on Wednesday, January 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following the season five premiere of “Workaholics.”

Courtesy of the collective brains of and starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, “Broad City” is an odd couple comedy about two best friends navigating their twenties in New York City whose adventures always lead down unexpected and outlandish paths. They’re broke, flawed and don’t shy away from the sticky situations NYC throws at them — they dive right into the muck. But no matter how bad it gets, these young broads are always down with whatever hits them.

Joining Jacobson and Glazer as series regulars are Hannibal Buress, Arturo Castro, Paul Downs, John Gemberling, Chris Gethard and Stephen Schneider.
