Series information and storyline
A new HBO comedy series Vice Principals has premiered on July 17, 2016. It was created by Danny R. McBride and Jody Hill, executive produced by McBride, Hill, David Gordon Green, Jonathan Watson and Stephanie Laing and produced by Rough House. The show was commissioned by HBO for 18 half-hour episodes, which are set to be split into two seasons, and no further continuation planned. This is not the first time McBride and Hill were involved in a short and successful HBO project, since their Eastbound and Down ended after 29 episodes.
McBride and Walton Goggins are two high school principals, Neil Gamby and Lee Russell competing for the top position. The first one is ill-tempered and unpopular, and the second is no better – a racist and a sociopath, so the retiring principals entrusts Dr. Belinda Brown (Kimberly Herbert Gregory) with the job. The two VPs conspire to bring Brown down by ruining her reputation. Their miserable attempts are chronicled in the dark humor comedy.
Reviews, viewership and renewal
Vice Principals was relatively well-received and garnered mixed to positive reviews. It drew an audience of 1.15 million viewers, and averaged approximately 0.8 million viewers for the four subsequent episodes. The second nine-episode season is scheduled to air in 2017, so please stay tuned for a release date announcement. Whether or not the show will indeed end after two seasons is yet to be confirmed, but the series’ creators sounded rather confident in their vision of the show’s future. Stay tuned for the latest news.
