Amazon Studios today announced that the critically-acclaimed and customer-favorite Garry Trudeau political series Alpha House will return for a second season. John Goodman, Mark Consuelos, Clark Johnson and Matt Malloy will reprise their roles as Republican Senators living under one roof in Washington, D.C. Since its launch, Alpha House has become the most popular TV season on Amazon Instant Video and has collected over 6,000 5-star reviews. Production on season two is scheduled to begin this summer.
“We are delighted that Alpha House is a winner among Prime members,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “More than 6,000 customers gave the show a perfect five-star rating and have posted glowing, witty and compelling reviews asking for a second season. We’re excited to begin production and keep the story about these senators alive.”
Written by Academy Award-nominee and Pulitzer Prize-winner Garry Trudeau and produced by Trudeau, Elliot Webb and Jonathan Alter, Alpha House is a comedy about four misfit senators who rent a house together in Washington, D.C. and deal with the outrageous—and sometimes all-too-real—foibles of Beltway life.
