Armando Iannucci’s Avenue 5 gets a season 2 trailer from HBO

Ahead of its return this October, HBO has released a new trailer for the second season of Armando Iannucci’s (Veep, The Death of Stalin) space tourism comedy Avenue 5.

Picking up five months after the events of season one, the series sees  the crew continue their struggle with controlling the unruly passengers. Check out the trailer and key art here…

AVENUE 5 takes us to a not-so-distant future where space tourism is a booming business. While manning a luxury spacecraft owned by Herman Judd (Josh Gad), Captain Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie) finds himself in over his head when the ship is thrown disastrously off-course – turning what was meant to be an eight-week cruise into an eight-year journey. Picking up five months after failing to reroute the vessel, season two follows the crew – including fiery engineer Billie (Lenora Crichlow), unpredictable head of customer relations Matt (Zach Woods), and faithful right-hand Iris (Suzy Nakamura) – as they struggle to lead, calm, control, and, if need be, hide from increasingly unruly passengers. On earth, they’re lauded as heroes, and in space, everyone can hear them scream.

Avenue 5 season 2 stars Hugh Laurie, Josh Gad, Zach Woods, Rebecca Front, Suzy Nakamura, Lenora Crichlow, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Ethan Phillips, with guest star appearances from Andy Buckley, Jessica St. Clair, Kyle Bornheimer, Adam Pålsson, Daisy May Cooper, Lucy Punch, Leila Farzad, Jonathan Aris and Arsher Ali.

The second season of Avenue 5 premieres on HBO on October 10th.
