'Dude Perfect' Stars Promise More "Crazy Ideas" for Comedy-Sports Show's Second Season
New episodes of Nickelodeon's comedy-sport series are set to debut Saturday.
The dudes from the Nickelodeon comedy-sports show The Dude Perfect Show promise that viewers will see more crazy antics in the upcoming second season.
The show, which returns with new episodes Saturday at 9 p.m. ET/PT, chronicles five best friends — Tyler Toney, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert and twins Coby and Cory Cotton — plus their panda mascot as they test the limits of sports and gravity and come up with the next viral video.
"It's us five at the office thinking of crazy ideas and getting goofy with it," Jones said of their creative process.
Season two will boast an array of crazy tricks, slam dunks and unbelievable stunts, according to the cast. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the group shared a few of the most exciting stunts viewers can expect in the upcoming season.
"There is a guest appearance on the show. Nickelodeon talent Jack Griffo [who plays Max Thunderman on the Nickelodeon show The Thundermans] is part of our sneak-peek episode, and we played a little Velcro Dodgeball. It was a game-changing move," said Jones.
This season also will feature the ensemble attempting a slam dunk into the world’s largest basketball hoop from 150 feet away, circumnavigating a minefield of mousetraps and blindly navigating each other through "trust obstacles."
Kids, don't try this at home. The stars agree that while they haven’t sustained any major injuries, that doesn't mean they have come out of every stunt unscathed.
"Surprisingly, we haven’t had that many injuries over the course of nine years. I say not too bad, but that is insulting to Cory because his finger doesn’t straighten out anymore because of a stunt," said Coby Cotton.
Dude Perfect now has more than 40 million fans and followers, more than 2.5 billion online video views and the top sports channel on YouTube. The group members also have broken 28 Guinness World Records in sports. As the Dude Perfect brand has expanded over the last few years, the college grads reflected on their journey from office jobs to sports stuntman stars.
"We just could not get away from this opportunity to hang out with our best friends and have fun, continue to compete and put it on camera so that other people could smile and have fun right along with us," said Cory Cotton.
