Description: People of Earth is a new original comedy about a support group for alien abductees. The show centers on skeptical journalist Ozzie Graham (Wyatt Cenac), who investigates a support group to write about the members’ supposed alien encounters. The more he digs into their oddball claims, the more he realizes there is truth in their stories and possibly even signs that point to his own alien abduction. The onetime outsider now finds himself a part of this eclectic group of misfits, all the while struggling with the idea of knowing that life could exist beyond our world.

Season End Status: This show had passable linear viewing numbers in its Monday timeslot, but apparently performed well enough for TBS once the expanded audience is taken into account because it ranks as one of 2016’s top comedies on cable across all platforms. Its second season will comprise ten episodes just like its first and will debut in Fall 2017.
