Mel Brooks’ ‘History of the World, Part II’ Is Finally Here

Mel Brooks hasn’t made a film since 1995’s Dracula: Dead and Loving It. Since then he’s made several Broadway shows based on his hits, and he was also, like, in his mid-90s, which tends to slow a person down just a little bit. Now, at long last, the comedy legend behind so many of our favorite movies has finally returned with … a TV show! Look, we’ll take what we can get at this point.

Brooks’ latest is the long-promised History of the World, Part II — which Brooks first teased (jokingly) before the closing credits of 1981’s History of the World, Part I. Like the original film, the new Hulu series is an anthology of sketches set throughout human history. And the cast, in addition to Brooks himself, is absolutely stacked: the latest batch of names announced includes Jason Alexander, Fred Armisen, Margaret Cho, Andy Cohen, Andy Daly, Rob Riggle, and George Wallace. That’s on top of the names that have already been revealed previously, including Quinta Brunson, Danny DeVito, David Duchovny, Hannah Einbinder, Josh Gad, Johnny Knoxville, Jack McBrayer, Seth Rogen, Sarah Silverman, J.B. Smoove, and Taika Waititi.

You’ll see a bunch of these funny folks — and many more — in the series’ new trailer:
