Season 2 premieres on October 30th on Disney+ and will air a total of eight episodes, with one new episode being released each week.

The Eric Andre Show

After a four year hiatus, Eric Andre returns for more incredibly bizarre interviews with celebrities, and all around weirdness for the fifth and final season of his show.
