History of the World Part II is arriving to Hulu on March 6. The anthology comedy series will follow a cast of characters through different time periods in history while also holding comedic elements that are quintessential to creator and writer Mel Brooks, who helped pen the sequel to his 1981 film. While the first film boasted an array of legendary talents, who is in the History of the World Part II cast?
History of the World Part II will see stars acting as various characters from, well, history. Just like the first film, there will be plenty of comedic moments as Brooks put his own spin on it. Instead of a film, the anthology series will be broken up into a four night event, with two episodes airing from March 6 to March 9.
In the trailer for the show, we can see there will definitely be some comedic elements in place when it comes to this interpretation of history. We’re looking forward to seeing what they come up with and what they might bring back from History of the World Part I.
