The comedy podcast “Voyage to the Stars” is coming back with another season of adventures. MWM Universe confirmed a season two order for the sci-fi series on Tuesday morning, and the company teased a few of the guest stars that are joining the crew on their voyage.
Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds) is joining the cast for the second season, which is already in production. Vangsness is playing the role of Nico, a lesbian space alien who finds herself in a complicated love triangle with fellow crewmembers.
The second season will also include guest stars Angela Kinsey (The Office), Paul F. Tompkins (BoJack Horseman), Erinn Hayes (Childrens Hospital), Jesse Cox (Good Game), Phil LaMarr (Futurama) and Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) among others.
“Voyage to the Stars” was created by Ryan Copple and produced by MWM Universe, Janet Varney and Felicia Day in association with Earwolf, and is available wherever you get your podcasts.
The second season follows the crew as they attempt to find their way back to Earth before it is devoured by a dangerous new adversary.
Season one of “Voyage to the Stars” detailed the misadventures of our group of misfits played by Colton Dunn (Superstore, Key & Peele) as a wholly unqualified Captain Tucker Lentz, Felicia Day (The Guild, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as scatterbrained scientist Elsa Rankfort, Janet Varney (You’re The Worst, Stan Against Evil) as the misanthropic A.I. aptly named Sorry and Steve Berg (The Good Place, The Goldbergs) as apathetic technician Stew Merkel who all accidentally find themselves on the wrong side of a wormhole.
The company described the podcast adding, “As this pop-culture-reference-laden space comedy unfolds, each planet visited is more outrageous than the last. The universe will never be the same as our crew comes together to tell a larger story about finding your place in the world. Even if it takes getting hopelessly lost in space and destroying several alien civilizations along the way.”
