Ensuring that American comedy fans continue to get a rudimentary history education the only way they can—the half-remembered mumblings of intoxicated celebrities—Comedy Central has ordered another season of Drunk History. The show—currently airing its fifth season, including episodes where Questlove dishes on the history of hip-hop, and Jaleel White plays Martin Luther King, Jr.—will officially come back for a sixth season next year.

Comedy Central president Kent Alterman announced the news, noting that, “They say history is written by the victors, but after five seasons, it’s now clear that it is best told by drunken comedians.” The show airs on Tuesday nights.
