In Praise of ‘American Vandal’: TV’s Sleeper Hit of the Year

Streaming services like Netflix often tend to work on a model which favors hype following instead of leading – for every Marvel property or proven commodity like Black Mirror that’s preceded by a blitz of hype, there are dozens of series that get released with little fanfare, banking on big leaps of faith that the right folks will find it. (Remember how little advance buzz accompanied Stranger Things before that first weekend turned it into a phenomenon?) Still, on paper, a true-crime satire that harnessed the appeal of both 13 Reasons Why and Making a Murderer sounds like the kind of sure thing that would get a major marketing rollout. Which is why you’d have thought that Netflix would have turned the premiere of American Vandal, Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault’s parody of modern investigative vérité set in a high school, into a major stop-the-presses event.

Netflix renews true crime spoof American Vandal for season 2

Netflix’s pitch-perfect true crime spoof American Vandal is getting another run at solving a school-wide mystery as the streaming service confirms it’s coming back for a second season.

The first season of the series dropped last month and follows Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) and Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) as they attempt to establish whether Dylan Maxwell (Jimmy Tatro) was guilty of drawing 27 dicks on teachers’ cars.

And while we don’t know yet whether or not dicks will be involved in the second season, Netflix released a short teaser video on Thursday (October 26) that suggests Peter will be back to solve a new crime, in a new school with new students.

“You can be born into the perfect family, the perfect school, the perfect life,” Peter teases as the clip focuses in on yearbook pictures of individual

The Certified Fresh Interview: American Vandal Crushes It, Gets Season 2 Renewal — Creators Dan Perrault and Tony …

American Vandal (Netflix)

American Vandal stormed the streaming world on September 15, bringing with it more dick jokes than have probably ever appeared in one television show in the history of dick jokes. And Netflix today announced that it has renewed the series for a second season of eight episodes to run in 2018.

From creators Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda, the show parodies the recent spate of true-crime documentary series like the streaming giant’s own Making a Murderer or the hit Serial podcast from the creators of This American Life.

It tells the story of a pair of high school students who make a documentary about a fellow student wrongly accused of spray painting giant pink penises on vehicles in the faculty parking lot. Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) and Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) take their mission very seriously, but aren’t

True-crime parody ‘American Vandal’ provides powerful correlations to actual criminal cases

Dylan Maxwell

“American Vandal” suspect Dylan Maxwell. Netflix.

I had my reservations about Netflix’s original true-crime-documentary parody series American Vandal from the beginning. Did I laugh out loud the first time I watched the promo? Sure. But I thought it had to be nothing more than a one-off skit for some internet comedy provider such as Funny or Die and the like.

However, some of my colleagues brought it up around the water cooler; they were pretty insistent that I watch. One lazy weekend, my wife and I
