‘Documentary Now!’ Season 2 Trailer Takes on Politics, ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’, & Talking Heads

     August 26, 2016


The trailer for Documentary Now! Season 2 has landed online. The half-hour comedy series hails from executive producers Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Rhys Thomas, and Seth Meyers, with each episode parodying a genre of documentary filmmaking. Season 1 took on Grey Gardens, Vice, and a music documentary following a Blue Oyster Cult-esque band called the “Blue Jean Committee”, and Season 2 looks even better.

The second season of the series will tackle the 1993 documentary The War Room, which chronicled Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, as well as Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the 1969 doc Salesman, a concert documentary take on the Talking HeadsStop Making Sense, and a two-part season capper on The Kid Stays in the Picture.

We previously saw a hilarious clip from the War Room episode, and while this trailer doesn’t go too deep into footage, it gives a nice overview of what’s to come without spoiling what are surely the best jokes. If you haven’t watched this show yet, it’s absolutely worth your time—and it’s on Netflix, so no excuses!

Watch the Documentary Now! Season 2 trailer below. The series returns to IFC on September 14th at 10pm ET/PT.
