Season 5 of The Eric Andre Show will premiere October 25.
We’re just over a month away from the new season of The Eric Andre Show. Last week, Adult Swim announced the series would be returning on Sunday, October 25 at midnight Eastern time. Hannibal Buress will reportedly return as Andre’s co-host, along with Lakeith Stanfield making a guest appearance.
According to the press release, Hannibal will quit the show mid-season and be replaced by a clone named “Blannibal.”
This time around, notable guests include Anderson .Paak, Joey Bada$$, Lil Yachty, Big Freedia, and more. In stills from the upcoming season, Joey Bada$$ dons a fat suit to appear as the character “Joey Fata$$,” Lil Yachty competes in the Rapper Warrior Ninja segment. The photoset Adult Swim released last week also includes an appearance by Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin.
Season 4 of the show premiered back in 2016 after a two-year hiatus, but ever since then, Eric Andre has kept busy. He appeared at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions this year. Earlier this year, Andre made his stand-up special Netflix debut with Legalize Everything. Before the pandemic, Andre was also set to premiere the hidden-camera prank film Bad Trip with Tiffany Haddish and Lil Rel. Additionally, he appeared in the video for Freddie Gibbs and Madlib‘s “Half Manne Half Cocaine.”
Past guests on Rapper Warrior Ninja include Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, and Go Dreamer. If you’re new to the series, find the first four seasons for free on Adult Swim, Hulu, or Amazon Prime video.
