Hulu’s Chris Estrada Comedy ‘This Fool’ Renewed

Time to be merry, fools!

Nearly three months after its debut, Hulu has handed out a second-season renewal for its Chris Estrada-led comedy series This Fool. Season two of the ABC Signature-produced comedy set in South Central L.A. will consist of another round of 10 episodes.

This Fool has been a critical hit since its binge-drop debut. Star Estrada wrote the comedy and executive produced it. The comedy currently has a remarkable 100% rating from critics and a 91% score with viewers on Rotten Tomatoes. Hulu, unlike other streamers, doesn’t release traditional viewership data.

The series revolves around Julio Lopez (Estrada), a 30-year-old who still lives at home who finds any excuse to avoid dealing with his own problems. Frankie Quinones stars as Julio’s cousin Luis, an ex gang member who moves in with his Lopez family after he is released from prison.

Estrada is not the only executive producer. Jake Weisman and Matt Ingebretson are also exec producers. Jonathan Groff, Fred Armisen, and Pat Bishop are all other possible exec producers.

The renewal of This Fool caps a strong year in scripted comedy originals on Hulu. This includes 17 Emmy nominations in the Building category for Only Morders in the Building , and picks for The Amazing and How I Met Your Father. Next up in 2023 is the debut of The other Black Girl and History of the World Part II.
