New episodes of series co-created by Amy Poehler and her ‘Parks and Recreation’ colleagues Mike and Julie Thacker Scully will air during 2021-2022 season.
FOX has just announced a Season 2 pickup of their Sunday Animation Domination block hit series, Duncanville, with new episodes airing during the 2021-2022 season. The show, which reunites Parks and Recreation alums Amy Poehler, Mike Scully and Julie Thacker Scully, is about a completely average 15-year-old boy, Duncan (voiced by Poehler), who’s nothing short of amazing… inside his own fantasy life. In addition to Poehler, the cast also includes Ty Burrell (Jack), Riki Lindhome (Kimberly), Joy Osmanski (Jing), Betsy Sodaro (Bex), Yassir Lester (Yangzi) and Zach Cherry (Wolf), as well as guest stars Rashida Jones (Mia) and Wiz Khalifa (Mr. Mitch).
“Duncanville is another great addition to our Sunday Animation Domination block,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, FOX Entertainment. “Amy, Mike and Julie have been fantastic partners, as have the teams at 20th and Universal Television. Our thanks also go out to the entire voice cast, including Ty, Riki, Betsy, Yassir, Zach, Joy, Rashida and Wiz. Duncan may be an average teen. However, the show is anything but, and we can’t wait for a brand-new season of Harris family adventures.”
Season-to-date, the show averages 2.3 million multiplatform viewers and is FOX’s most-streamed new comedy this season; its premiere is FOX’s most-streamed animated debut on record (7-day average).
Duncanville is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Universal Television and FOX Entertainment. Mike Scully, Julie Scully and Poehler co-created and executive-produce the series with executive producer Dave Becky. The series is animated by Bento Box Entertainment.
