David Cross, Courteney Cox, Laura Dern, and a whole bunch of people from Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights, and The League will appear on the second season of Drunk History. The show’s co-creator and host Derek Waters told Entertainment Weekly that his only goal in casting season two was “to keep clear eyes and a full heart so I wouldn’t lose”—something that he achieved by landing FNL alums Adrianne Palicki, Zach Gilford, and Jesse Plemons as celebrity re-enactors. AD is represented by Cross, Tony Hale, and Alia Shawkat, and The League contributed Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, and Jason Mantzoukas. 

Other actors who’ll pop up on season two include John Lithgow, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Johnny Knoxville, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Busy Philipps, Matt Walsh, Jon Daly, Emily Deschanel, Steven Yeun, Ken Marino, Jayma Mays, Jason Momoa, Charlie Day, and Jaleel White, among others. Season one guests Winona Ryder, Jack Black, Stephen Merchant, and Jack McBrayer will also return, albeit in new roles. This season’s inebriated storytellers include Jonah Ray, Duncan Trussell, Molly McAleer, and Morgan Murphy.

Season two of Drunk History launches July 1 on Comedy Central.
