‘Everyone Else Burns’ Renewed Season 2 at CW newsbhunt


The CW network has picked up a second season of U.K. comedy “Everyone Else Burns” ahead of the show’s first season debuting on the U.S. broadcaster.

Part of the CW’s acquisition-heavy fall slate, a programming lineup set by new owner Nexstar to avoid impacts of the now-ended writers strike and ongoing actors strike, “Everyone Else Burns” Season 1 originally aired on Channel 4 in the U.K. in January. It will premiere Thursday at 9:30 p.m. on the CW.

Per its official logline, “Everyone Else Burns” centers on the Lewises, a strictly religious family who believe the world will end within the decade. Patriarch David (Simon Bird, “Friday Night Dinner,” “The Inbetweeners”) longs for the church to promote him. Long-suffering Fiona (Kate O’Flynn, “Landscapers”) hungers for a life beyond sermons and squash. Aaron (Harry Connor) is a model young believer – except his drawings feature the rest of the family burning in hell. And anxious 17-year-old Rachel (Amy James-Kelly, “Three Families,” “Military Wives”) is about to fall for someone who could save her social life, but also damn her soul.

The series is created and written by Dillon Mapletoft and Oliver Taylor, who executive produce alongside Brooke Posch, Tony Hernandez and Jax Media’s Molly Seymour.

The second season will be co-produced by Imagine Entertainment’s Jax Media and Universal Studio Group’s Universal International Studios, in association with the CW and UK broadcaster Channel 4. The CW is joining as a creative producer for Season 2.

“’Everyone Else Burns’ is a brilliant and bitingly funny series that is as much about family as it is about the end of days,” CW president of entertainment Brad Schwartz said. “There is truly no other comedy on television like it, and we are thrilled to work alongside the immensely talented writers and producers to bring the uniquely hilarious Lewis family to The CW for another season.”
