Mr. Show vets are back with new Netflix series With Bob and David

Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Caul Saul) and David Cross (Arrested Development) are officially back together again! The longtime friends, who  hosted the four-season Emmy-winning Mr. Show With Bob and David for four seasons in the ’90s, will return in a new Netflix original sketch series With Bob and David.

“After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEALs, Bob and David are back saving our country the way they do best,” according to a statement. “Four half-hours of brand new comedy featuring all new characters, all new scenes, and most importantly, all new wigs.”

The duo are the co-writers, co-stars and exec producers of the series, alongside Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (Adult Swim), Tim Sarkes (Mind of Mencia), Naomi Odenkirk and Dave Kneebone. In addition to the four episodes, an hourlong making-of special is also slated for the series which will debut in 2016.

The veteran comedians first met while working together on The Ben Stiller Show and have stayed in touch since The Mr. Show, occasionally appearing together in mini-reunions. Odenkirk and David Cross most recently hit the road for a six-city tour in 2013. While they are the only regular cast members, there will undoubtably be some all-star guest appearances. The Mr. Show was also created by Brian Posehn and featured Sarah Silverman, Jack Black, Tom Kenny and numerous others.

The rumor of their new show has been out since Mr. Show alum Paul F. Tompkins (also of Comedy Bang! Bang! and No, You Shut Up!) tweeted a photo of the group teasing news of the upcoming series.

The new series will come as exciting news for comedy fans on Netflix, which is rapidly expanding its original programming this year. It’s not too surprising, though as Netflix is also the VOD partner for the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Caul Saul (which wraps up its first season next week)
