Season Premiere Sunday, September 17 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on HBO
As the tumultuous school year at North Jackson High continues, a new semester brings big changes – and Gamby and Russell are about to learn that the only thing harder than gaining power is holding on to it. The darkest comedy on television returns to finish what was started with nine new episodes.
Danny McBride (HBO’s “Eastbound & Down”; “This Is the End”) stars as Neal Gamby and Walton Goggins (Emmy® nominee for “Justified”; “Six”) stars as Lee Russell in the show. The series also stars Kimberly Hébert Gregory (“Devious Maids”) as Dr. Belinda Brown; Georgia King (“The New Normal”) as English teacher Amanda Snodgrass, Gamby’s on- and off-again girlfriend; Busy Phillips (“Cougar Town”) as Gale, Gamby’s ex-wife; Shea Whigham (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) as Ray, Gale’s impossibly nice husband; and Sheaun McKinney (“Know Thy Enemy”) as cafeteria worker Dayshawn. Joining the cast this season is Dale Dickey (“Hell or High Water”) as Nash, who was appointed vice principal of discipline in Gamby’s absence.
Guest stars on the second season include Fisher Stevens (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) as a scholarly rival to Gamby for Amanda’s attentions; Scott Caan (“Hawaii 5-0”) as a teambuilding trainer; Maya Love as Gamby’s daughter, Janelle; and Susan Park (“Fargo”) as Russell’s wife, Christine.
