Ahead of the series debut, Comedy Central has renewed animated series “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” for a second season. The first season premieres Sept. 14.
The renewal announcement was made Thursday evening at Comic-Con in San Diego.

“This show pushes the envelope far enough to warrant a second season before season one even airs,” said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman.
“Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is described as an urban animated series mixing raucous comedy and social commentary that centers on three high school freshman basketball benchwarmers: Jamal, Grover and Milk. The trio of friends tackle life with some wins and some losses, but failure doesn’t faze them since they’re legends — even if it’s just in their own minds.
