A new vandal is coming to Netflix’s documentary parody series, with American Vandal Season 2 set to arrive in September.
Season 1 followed high schooler Peter Maldonado (played by Tyler Alvarez), a documentarian who chronicled the mystery of whether senior Dylan Maxwell (played by Jimmy Tatro) pulled off a prank in which he vandalized 27 faculty cars with spray-painted penises. Season 2, however, will see Peter tackling a new case, attempting discern the identity of a prankster known as “the Turd Burglar,” a lunchtime saboteur whose handiwork led to a widespread brownout of a different, messier variety.
Series co-creators and executive producers Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda, as well as showrunner Dan Lagana, are back for Season 2, which will consist of eight episodes, continuing to follow the spoof documentary format that’s reminiscent of Making a Murderer and Serial.
American Vandal Season 2 Trailer
“What if the motive is just poop is funny?”
While there’s a general belief that nothing brings people together like shared tragedy, the American Vandal Season 2 trailer showcases a special kind of bond that’s only attainable when everyone at school simultaneously s**ts themselves. Indeed, as the series moves away from a serial spray-painter of phalluses, the ante is upped enormously in Season 2 at a Catholic School, with documentarian Peter’s new quarry, the Turd Burglar, whose covertly contaminated lemonade was the catalyst for an incident known as “the brownout,” an occurrence that’s exponentially embarrassing for the collective student body in the age of social media.
