AFTER FIVE SEASONS AND OVER 100 EPISODES "COMEDY BANG! BANG!" RETURNS TO IFC THIS FALL FOR TEN FINAL EPISODES

New Episodes Premiere Friday, October 28 at 11PM and 11:30PM

Series Finale Set to Air Friday, December 10

NEW YORK - August 18, 2016 - After a celebrated and star-studded four-year run, IFC's surreal scripted talker COMEDY BANG! BANG! will come to an end this fall. The series' final ten episodes are set to air starting Friday, October 28, with two back-to-back episodes at 11:00PM and 11:30PM. The remaining episodes, starring series host Scott Aukerman and musical co-host "Weird Al" Yankovic, will air weekly, back-to-back on Fridays. The series finale will air December 10 (accounting for a Thanksgiving preemption).

"'Comedy Bang! Bang!' has been an incredibly important show for IFC. Over five seasons and more than 100 episodes, Scott Aukerman has been a comedic force who has meant so much to us," said Jennifer Caserta, IFC president. "Comedy Bang! Bang! had a unique sensibility in the comedy space, and delivered an amazing array of A-list guest stars. Scott and his team worked with our advertising partners in ways that were as buzzy as the jokes. We are proud to celebrate 'Comedy Bang! Bang!' across this final 10-episode send-off and appreciate everything it has meant to IFC."

Guest stars coming to the couch for the series' final episodes include: Malin Akerman (Billions, Childrens Hospital), Mike Colter (Jessica Jones, The Good Wife), Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory, The Wedding Ringer), singer-songwriter Ben Folds, Gillian Jacobs (Love, Community), Allison Janney (Mom, Masters of Sex), Jason Mantzoukas (The League, Dirty Grandpa), Haley Joel Osment (The Spoils Before Dying, Entourage), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Adam Scott (Parks & Recreation), Paul F. Tompkins (BoJack Horseman, Bajillion Dollar Properie$), Matt Walsh (Veep), and the return of former co-host Reggie Watts (The Late Late Show with James Corden).

Since first debuting in 2012, Comedy Bang! Bang! has built a strong legion of devoted fans with its absurdist take on the late-night format. Created and hosted by Scott Aukerman, whose beloved bandleaders throughout the years include Reggie Watts, Kid Cudi, and most recently "Weird Al" Yankovic, the show famously features untraditional celebrity interviews, intermingled with surprising guest stars, musical moments, and Scott's deadpan humor.

Comedy Bang! Bang! is produced for IFC by Abso Lutely Productions; Aukerman, Dave Kneebone and Neil Campbell serve as executive producers. Season 5 episodes will be available on the new IFC mobile app after their premiere broadcasts. Seasons 1-4 are currently available to view on Netflix.
