From a media release:
As Canadian rent prices skyrocket, what’s a young adult to do? CBC’s smash-hit My 90-Year-Old Roommate (MNYOR) provides one solution: move in with your grandpa. Season 2 of this Canadian Screen Award-winning comedy series starring Paul Soles and Ethan Cole, will begin streaming at cbc.ca/watch and the CBC TV App on April 26.
A no-holds-barred dark comedy rooted in family and set in the madness of the modern world, MNYOR is an exploration of technology, mortality and relationships told through the eyes of two generations, once removed. A true coming together of generations, the series is written by Ethan Cole, David Lipson and Josh Shultz, who were joined by Ethan’s 92-year-old grandfather, Joe Cole, as a contributing writer.
MNYOR is based on the viral web series starring Ethan and Joe Cole, Explaining Things to My Grandfather, which has garnered more than 3 million views on YouTube.
Season two promises to deliver even more laughs and discomfort as viewers see Ethan and his grandfather Joe live-stream funerals, go on elderly bachelor parties, explore the perils of self-diagnosis via online symptom checkers, and so much more. Season two will also see guest appearances from Verne Troyer (Austin Powers) and online influencers Matthew Santoro and Azzy of the Youtube channel “Azzyland”, who have 6 million and 4 million YouTube subscribers, respectively.
Season two (12 x 10) is executive produced by Lauren Corber (LoCo Motion Pictures), Ethan Cole, Josh Shultz, David Lipson and Jason Kennedy. Geoff LaPaire serves as Producer.
Viewers can catch up on Season 1 at cbc.ca/watch.
