TORONTO (May 1, 2014) — Comedian, writer, and podcaster Marc Maron is back!  The Movie Network presents Season 2 of the acclaimed comedy series MARON, premiering Thursday, May 8 at 10 p.m. ET on The Movie Network, day-and-date with IFC in the U.S. Revolving around Marc’s life and his successful WTF podcast, the new 13-episode season brings Marc’s world of problems, attempts at redemption, and brood of cats back to The Movie Network.

In Season 2 of MARON, things appear to be looking up for Marc, yet he continues to sabotage his professional, romantic, and personal relationships. His dysfunctional family embarks on a new journey when the entire clan is forced to co-exist in the same house for the first time in decades, and Marc’s closest companionship ends when his beloved cat Boomer goes missing.

Notable guest stars this season include: Bill Burr (BREAKING BAD), Wyatt Cenac (THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART), David Cross (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT), Joey “Coco” Diaz (Grudge Match), Paul Feig (THE OFFICE), Chris Hardwick (@MIDNIGHT), Rachael Harris (The Hangover), Michael Ian Black (BURNING LOVE), Moshe Kasher (MOSHE KASHER: LIVE IN OAKLAND), Tom Kenny (Voice of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS), Johnny Knoxville (Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa), Dave Koechner (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), Tig Notaro (THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM), Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Pardo (COMEDY BANG! BANG!), Eddie Pepitone (COMMUNITY), Caroline Rhea (PHINEAS AND FERB), Andy Richter (CONAN), Richard Riehle (THE MINDY PROJECT), Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street), Ray Romano (PARENTHOOD), Sarah Silverman (HBO’s SARAH SILVERMAN: WE ARE MIRACLES), and Nora Zehetner (MAD MEN).

Returning this season is Judd Hirsch (DAMAGES) as Marc’s scheming father; Sally Kellerman (UNSUPERVISED) as his passive aggressive and self-absorbed mother; Andy Kindler (BOB’S BURGERS) as close friend; and Josh Brener (HBO’s SILICON VALLEY) as his overly eager assistant. Joining this close-knit circle is comedian and fellow podcaster Dave Anthony (1600 PENN) who adds a fresh layer of complication to Marc’s chaotic life. 

Marc Maron is the creator, executive producer, and writer of MARON. Apostle's  Denis Leary and Jim Serpico (RESCUE ME) are also executive producers, along with Michael Jamin (WILFRED), Sivert Glarum (KING OF THE HILL), Duncan Birmingham (QUEER AS FOLK), and Olivia Wingate (John Hodgman: Ragnarok).
