The release date for Impastor Season 2 — September 28, 2016
This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of Impastor Season 2 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. TV Land has scheduled the premiere date for a new season for September 28, 2016.
Impastor is an American sitcom starring Michael Rosenbaum and created by the Wings writer Christopher Vane. The series follows the life of a hard-core gambler turn gay pastor in a small town of Ladner. The first season of the series premiered on TV Land on July 15, 2015, attracting an average of 2.8 million viewers to each episode.
Buddy Dobbs is a no-good gambler, slacker and now a fugitive. Forced to think of suicide by a massive gambling debt, Buddy meets a reverend who talks him out of jumping off of a bridge, only to see that reverend slip and fall down himself. After the initial shock wears out, Buddy realizes the golden opportunity he’s been presented – he can pretend to be dead, steel the reverend’s identity and hide out as long as he needs to. His new life as a gay pastor turns out not as bad as one gambling addict might imagine, as there are always teenagers to ‘confiscate’ weed from, pretty women that strive for his attention, and a countless ‘fan-base’ of good Lutherans who respect and listen to him.
Impastor is a well-written, witty and outrageous comedy. Although it may seem that it’s a ‘sit-back-relax-and-think-of-nothing’ type of a show, it actually makes the viewer contemplate issues like identity, integrity, religion and many others. With the stable fan-base and critical acclaim that the series has received, it is no wonder that TV Land has announced its plans to renew the show for season 2. Although we don’t know the exact date yet, we will definitely see Impastor Season 2 some time in 2016.
