'Hot Date' season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the original comedy digital series

Let's just openly admit it, modern relationships are hard. CollegeHumor acknowledges it and has come out with a great original digital comedy series called 'Hot Date', which explores the intricacies and challenges of modern-day dating and relationships. The series stars two popular CollegeHumor comedians, who happen to be married in real life — Emily Axford and Brian Murphy. After a successful run of the first season, the show is back with season two. Here is all you need to know about the show:

Release date

The show is set to premiere on Friday, September 20, at 10  PM on CBS-owned Pop TV channel.


Following the raging success of CollegeHumor's digital series 'Hot Date', Will Arnett (of 'Arrested Development' fame), was so impressed that he decided to produce the digital series for Pop TV Channel. The show features CollegeHumor actors Emily Axford as Em and Brian Murphy as Murph.

The actors play exaggerated versions of themselves. In season one, we saw Em and Murph in New York city. In season 2, the couple heads to New Orleans. The couple has finally decided to settle down and get married, so the upcoming season will be focusing on their hilarious misadventures as they plan their dream wedding. Don't worry, the show will still have a good amount of relationship-based comedy which won us over in the first season.


"'Hot Date' skewers the complicated and sometimes absurd situations that people face in young adulthood, from marriage to building a career to having kids," shared Justin Rosenblatt, EVP Original Programming and Development at Pop TV. "This season finds Emily and Brian exploring these things and more as their relationship matures — even if they don't."
