Adult Swim Renews 'Childrens Hospital' for Seventh Season
Childrens Hospital will be back to save more lives.
Adult Swim has renewed the acclaimed comedy for a seventh season, the network announced Tuesday.
The series, which hails from creator and star Rob Corddry, examines the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors whose dedication to their patients is only surpassed by their dedication to … their own personal lives.
“I'm happy,” said Corddry. “After our season six cliffhanger, people will be dying for us to turn our backs on the notion of series continuity even more.”
Childrens Hospital's cast includes Lake Bell, Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, Megan Mullally, Erinn Hayes, Malin Akerman, Zandy Hartig, Brian Huskey and Henry Winkler. Exec produced by Corddry, David Wain (Role Models) and Jonathan Stern (Burning Love), the series has been known to lure an impressive slate of guest stars season after season, ranging from Jon Hamm to "Weird Al" Yankovic.
Abominable Pictures, The Corddry Company and Warner Bros. Television Group’s Studio 2.0 produce the series, which is also distributed by Warner Bros TV.
Childrens Hospital has won two Emmys for best short-format live-action entertainment program. The comedy began as a web series in 2008 before moving to Adult Swim in 2010.
Childrens Hospital airs Fridays at midnight on Adult Swim.
