Adult Swim apparently loves having the absurdly unique Childrens Hospital on their schedule as much as its fans enjoy watching it.
The series – about a self-involved group of doctors who live for their personal lives, only occasionally pausing to treat sick children, has been picked up for a seventh season. Children beware!
Details follow the jump.
Adult Swim Prescribes Another Season Of Childrens Hospital
Adult Swim announced today it has greenlit a seventh season of the hilariously absurd and medically accurate live-action comedy Childrens Hospital, the two-time Emmy®-winning series from creator/executive producer Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart). Premiere episodes from the current season, featuring a star-studded cast of top comedic talent, air on Adult Swim every Friday night at midnight ET/PT.
Childrens Hospital explores the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors charged with healthy libidos. Their dedication to their personal lives is relentless, interrupted only by the occasional need to treat sick children. The show’s creative team is led by Corddry and fellow executive producers/writers Jonathan Stern (Burning Love, NTSF:SD:SUV::) and David Wain (Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer).
“I’m happy,” said Corddry. “After our season six cliff hanger, people will be dying for us to turn our backs on the notion of series continuity even more.”
An irreverent comedy with a twisted take on network medical dramas, Childrens Hospital is produced by Abominable Pictures, The Corddry Company and Warner Bros. Television Group’s Studio 2.0. It is distributed by Warner Bros. Television and is based upon the Webby Award–winning digital series that debuted on TheWB.com in 2008.
