Your favorite “Kroll Show” characters are dolphinately staying around as Comedy Central has ordered a third season of Nick Kroll’s critically-acclaimed sketch pop culture series “Kroll Show,” it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, Comedy Central. Executive produced by Kroll, John Levenstein and Christie Smith, the second season airing on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT is averaging 1.1 million total viewers for its premiere episodes.

“Nick has gone so deep into his characters we’re worried about his mental health if we didn’t pick-up a third season,” said Alterman.

“I could not be more excited to begin shooting season three of ‘Kroll Show,’ added Kroll. “I have already booked my tickets for South Africa!”
