'Another Period': Jason Ritter is ready for a Netflix reboot after Comedy Central says no to season 4
Every episode and season of 'Another Period' was more ridiculous than the previous one and there really is a lot more to be explored on the show
Comedy Central has lived up to its name and has given us some of the best comedic shows of all time, including the Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome sitcom ‘Another Period’. Unfortunately, though, the network has decided not to renew the show for a fourth season, which would have seen the imbecilic Bellacourt brother Lord Frederick (portrayed by Jason Ritter) become the President of the United States.
Ritter, who is heartbroken about the cancellation quips, “This season Fredrick would have been president and we had all these incredible plans.” Revealing the news about the cancellation to Meaww, Ritter also said that he is still hoping "for some kind of movie, because I love that world so much.”
The Bellacourts were nothing if not fun — oh, and also entitled. Every episode and season was more ridiculous than the previous one and there really was a lot more to be explored on the show. “Every season just got more and more crazy and it was such a fun and horrible family to be a part of,” says Ritter, adding, “It was great. I love them. It was a fun mix of people. We had a great time.”
However, seeing as networking services such as Netflix are saving and bringing back beloved shows, the cast — at least one of them — is not ready to say goodbye. We cannot help but wonder if ‘Another Period’ would enjoy the same fate, but at least we know Ritter would be on board. “That would be amazing. That would be too good,” he said at the prospect.
Ritter, after all, is already closely associated with the streaming platform, having currently taken over as the voice of Dark Spyro on the popular Netflix animation series ‘Skylanders Academy.’ He is also expected to star in the upcoming sci-fi series on Netflix titled ‘Raising Dion’ also featuring Michael B Jordan, Alisha Wainwright and Ja'Siah Young.
Netflix, we hope you’re reading, because there are a lot of fans looking forward to watching President Frederick and his tantrums in the White House.
