The new season returns with 20 episodes filled with an exciting line-up of guest stars, including award-winning musicians, top-tier comics, sketch luminaries, and the star of an 80's classic dance movie, each joining in on the fun with Scott and Al. Every week, two back-to-back episodes will air starting at 11:00pm; the first 10 episodes run through July 1, and the remaining 10 episodes will air on IFC this fall. Guest stars coming to the couch this season include: Kevin Bacon (Footloose, Apollo 13), Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory, The Wedding Ringer), Nathan Fielder (Nathan For You), singer-songwriter Ben Folds (Rockin' the Suburbs, Zak and Sara), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), singer-songwriter Joe Jonas (Sorry, Not Right Now), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth, Bob's Burgers), hip-hop singer-songwriter T-Pain (Buy U a Drank, Bartender), singer-songwriter duo Tegan and Sara (Everything is Awesome!!, Closer), and comedy trio The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone).
