Fox Reveals ‘Grimsburg’ Season 1 Guest Stars

Christina Hendricks, Rosie Perez, and Patton Oswalt join series star and executive producer John Ham in the new animated comedy series about Marvin Flute, a misanthropic detective trying to redeem himself; special preview debuts January 7.

Fox Entertainment has announced an impressive list of guest stars joining the upcoming animated comedy Grimsburg’s previously announced A-list roster. Starring and executive-produced by Emmy Award winner Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Confess, Fletch), the series debuts January 7, 2024, immediately following FOX’s NFL doubleheader in a special preview event before heading to its home on Fox Animation Domination Block Sunday, February 18 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) On Fox.

Joining the previously announced cast, which includes Hamm, Erinn Hayes, Rachel Dratsch, Alan Tudyk, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Greg Chun, are Season 1 guest stars Rosie Perez, Kaniehtiio Horn, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Jaime Camil, Christina Hendricks, Amy Sedaris, and Patton Oswalt.

Wholly owned by FOX Entertainment and produced by FOX’s Emmy-winning animation studio, Bento Box Entertainment, Grimsburg centers around Marvin Flute (Hamm), who may be the greatest detective ever to catch a cannibal clown or correctly identify a mid-century modern armoire. But there’s one mystery he still can’t crack - himself. To do that, he must return to Grimsburg, a town where everyone has a secret or three, and redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow detectives, his ferocious ex-wife, and his lovably unstable son.

Catlan McClelland and Matthew Schlissel created the series and serve as co-executive producers alongside showrunner Chadd Gindin. Hamm serves as executive producer alongside Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady of The Jackal Group, and Connie Tavel.

The series has already been picked up for Season 2 ahead of the Season 1 premiere.
