After six seasons on the air, Drunk History has been canceled.
According to Variety, “The show had been renewed for a seventh season last year and was in pre-production on that season when the COVID-19 pandemic forced production to stop in March. Later on, Comedy Central decided to pull the plug on the show as the network moves away from live-action scripted shows in favor of adult animation.”
Drunk History creator Derek Waters recently signed a first-look deal with the network, and will continue to develop projects.
Several big names in Hollywood have appeared on the show, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tiffany Haddish, Winona Ryder, Maya Rudolph, Seth Rogen, Kirsten Dunst, Will Ferrell, Tessa Thompson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Quest Love.
Drunk History has earned 17 Emmy nominations and won one. It’s currently up for three Emmys this year.
