NEW YORK, December 10, 2015 – From fighting for the local neighborhood shop, to starting a national fitness craze and developing a new clothing line for a good cause, there is nothing business-related that Nathan Fielder can’t or won’t tackle. Comedy Central’s hit series “Nathan For You,” which critics have called “insanely brilliant,” has been renewed for a fourth season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Original Programming, Comedy Central. The third season wraps up tonight with Fielder’s most daring project to date in the extended season finale airing at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with limited commercial interruptions.
“I couldn’t be more excited to continue my non-sexual relationship with Viacom,” said Fielder.
“Nathan showed such professionalism transitioning our relationship into a platonic one last season, he deserves another,” added Alterman.
For the extended finale, Fielder underwent seven months of physical training to prepare for his most ambitious project to date. Fielder sets out to prove that there’s a hero in all of us and he risks everything to pull off the most astonishing life transformation ever to be broadcast on television.
Described by The New York Times as “the television series with the most incisive take on the 21st-century economy,” “Nathan For You” is a hit among Comedy Central’s core young audience. The third season rating rose nearly 20% among Men 18-24 and the full episode streams on digital platforms increased 24%, led by a 92% increase on Comedy Central’s App. In all, total weekly video streams increased over 40% vs. the series’ second season.
With his unorthodox approach to problem solving, Fielder’s genuine efforts to do good often draw the real people he encounters into an experience far beyond what they signed up for. “Nathan For You” is produced by Abso Lutely Productions. Fielder, Leo Allen, Dave Kneebone, Christie Smith and Dan McManus are Executive Producers. Jim Sharp and Rachel Olson are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
