Comedy Central announced the return of Crank Yankers will take place at 10:30pm on September 21st immediately following the premiere of South Park.
The new trailer has some great characters old and new. It looks like Sarah Silverman’s Hadassah will be back. Tracy Morgan’s “Spoonie Luv” is returning, and Tony Barbieri is bringing back “Niles Standish.” Jimmy Kimmel is bringing back “Elmer Higgins” and Elmer’s grandson “Terrence Catheter”. “Mr Birchum” is back with Adam Carolla voicing, David Alan Grier is bringing back “The Truth”, and although we see no signs that the un-PC Special Ed will be be a part of the new season, (we’re still hoping), we are excited to see Ed’s cousin, Bobby Fletcher, also voiced by Jim Florentine will be a part of the new season.
Also lending voices to Season Five: Arturo Castro, Will Forte, Nikki Glaser, Kathy Griffin, Tiffany Haddish, Lil Rel Howery, Abbi Jacobson, Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero,
Thomas Lennon, Demetri Martin, Bobby Moynihan, Kevin Nealon, Adam Pally, Chelsea Peretti, Aubrey Plaza, Jeff Ross, Paul Scheer, Iliza Shlesinger, Jimmy O. Yang, Derek Waters and Many More
Comedy Central has ordered 20 episodes of the beloved series, and they say they’re not really messing with the format. This will be Jimmy Kimmel’s first project for his
newly formed production banner KIMMELOT. Jonathan Kimmel will serve as showrunner and executive producer, joined by executive producers/creators Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla and Daniel Kellison.
