PEN15 stars co-creators Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle as thirteen-year-old outcasts in the year 2000, “where the best day of your life can turn into your worst with the stroke of a gel pen,” per the official description. Erskine and Konkle are joined in the cast by actual teens playing their middle school classmates. Season 1 debuted back in February; Season 2 will consist of 14 episodes.
Ramy stars stand-up comedian Ramy Youssef — who co-created and writes the show as well — as a first-generation Egyptian-American living in New Jersey who finds himself caught “between a Muslim community who believes life is a moral test and a millennial generation that thinks life has no consequences,” per the synopsis. Jerrod Carmichael serves as an executive producer. Season 1 debuted earlier this month; Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes.
The two comedies join fellow Hulu freshman comedy Shrill, starring SNL‘s Aidy Bryant, which earned a Season 2 renewal earlier this month. TVLine’s Streaming Scorecard has been updated to reflect the news.
