Adult Swim announces Season 6 of The Eric Andre Show and a slew of celebrity guests

Few entertainers are as consistently surprising and downright odd as Eric Andre. The comedian’s eponymous talk show embodies that off-the-rail quality; Andre bothers his celebrity guests and regulars alike with fake vomit, a Cyclops figure, and all sorts of surreal stunts. We have other curiosities in store, such as: The Eric Andre Show returns to Adult Swim for Season 6 in 2023 (and finds a new home on HBO Max).

While that can be quite a long wait, at least we have a partial guest list to keep us fed: Natasha Lyonne, Jaleel White, Blac Chyna, Jon Hamm, Raven-Symoné, Diplo, Daymond John, Meagan Good, Rico Nasty, Planned for starters are Waka Flocka Flame, Tinashe, Cypress Hill, and Lil Yachty.

“Expect more crazy pranks, fire and mayhem in Season 666 with a jam-packed schedule of celebrities I can’t believe agreed to,” Andre said in a press release.

And as always, it presents itself in a new look for the season. According to the same press release, Andre will be “ripped, oiled up, tanned and in a ponytail” for the new episodes. Sounds like it fits WrestleMania.

The Eric Andre Show is now a decade old, having originally premiered in 2012. That could be a concern for the coming season definitely Celebrities, or at least their publicists, know who Andre is by this point. They’re aware that he’s not a benign talk show host trained to pitch them for every project that’s on the horizon. He faces the same problem as Sacha Baron Cohen with his recognizable Borat character, a problem Baron Cohen dealt with creatively borate 2 with new fairings. While the initial shock value may have worn off, Andre and his writing team are more than up to the task of keeping guests and viewers on their toes.

Another notable change is the absence of Hannibal Buress from his co-host duties. He left before Season 5, with Felipe Esparza, Lakeith Stanfield, and James Hazley stepping in as temporary substitutes. No word yet on whether Andre is getting a new co-host or just going solo.

This season will be directed by Kitao Sakurai, who previously worked on the show, and Jeff Tremaine, the director and producer of all donkey movies. The pair previously worked together on Andre’s hidden camera film bad trip, which was directed by Sakurai and produced by Tremaine. With Tremaine on board for this new season, we can expect a lot more ridiculous hijinks. The Eric Andre Show is produced by Abso Lutely Productions and Andre serves as executive producer alongside Sakurai, Dan Curry, Mike Rosenstein and Dave Kneebone.
