Jim Carrey stars as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him. But when this beloved personality's family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale, fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
Showtime announced today that Kidding has been renewed for a second season. The good news, which was announced on the show's official Twitter account, comes midway through the dramedy's freshman run.
The series premiered in September with Jim Carrey starring in his first-ever television lead role. His last time as a TV regular was a cast member of the '90s sketch comedy series In Living Color. In Kidding, Carrey stars as a kind-hearted man named Jeff who has become a beacon of hope and wisdom to kids across American in his role as Mr. Pickles, an icon of children's television and anchor of a successful branding empire. But when family issues begin to take over his life, Jeff's sanity hangs in the balance while coping with the crisis.
Look for Season 2 of Kidding in 2019.
