Finding great success in the eyes of fans with the first season of ‘Con Man,’ Alan Tudyk and company will be back for another season of convention-related hijinks, and today we finally get our first look at the Season 2 trailer of the show!
First premiered at San Diego Comic Con – a move that particularly makes sense, seeing as how the show has its broadcast home on the company’s proprietary streaming network, Comic-Con HQ – the trailer is a fun nod to what has come before in the series, as well as an indication that fans can look forward to more of the same comedic misadventures from pop-culture convention settings in the next run of episodes.
As Tudyk himself explained to fans at the SDCC panel, “There are so many more things to write about – ‘This is the only place that would happen.’ Events you want to exploit for comedy because the stakes are so high and magic can happen [at conventions].”
The season will also, oddly enough, feature Tudyk’s character, Wray Nerely, being cast in a musical version of John Steinbeck’s classic tale ‘Of Mice and Men,’ an idea that spawned out of a conversation Tudyk had with fellow frequent convention guest Lou Ferrigno. Tudyk told the SDCC audience that Ferrigno will star on the show to play Lenny in the musical: “That one little [conversation] spawned all of that craziness. There’s no one else who could have done it – without Lou, it doesn’t happen.”
‘Con Man’ Season 2 will premiere on Comic-Con HQ in November 2016.
Con Man centers on the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) the co-star of “Spectrum,” a sci-fi series, which was canceled before its time and went on to become a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred as the series Captain and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray (Tudyk) hasn’t found his desired level of stardom. Wray is the begrudging guest of sci-fi conventions, comic book store appearances, and different pop culture events; however, everything is not as it seems from the outside. The series will explore these events and all the weird and crazy things that happen to them along the way.

Tony Schaab mixed up all this fake puke at home and then he went to this movie theater, hid the puke in his jacket, climbed up to the balcony, and then he made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa… and then he dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then – this was horrible – all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other… and he never felt so bad in his entire life! A lover of most things sci-fi and horror, Tony is an author by day and a DJ by night. Come hang out with Tony on Facebook and Twitter to hear him spew semi-funny nonsense and get your opportunity to finally put him in his place.
