In a phone interview held earlier this week, Adam DeVine, star of Comedy Central’s Workaholics, was asked how he would describe the show’s upcoming season if it were a point in the basketball career of former center Shaquille O’ Neal.

“This might be the Shaquille that just got traded to the Lakers and is ready to win some championships, aka Emmys, aka Golden Globes,” he said.

Comedy Central is gearing up to get weird with the second half of the show’s third season, which premieres on the station on Jan. 16 at 10 p.m.

Recently renewed for a fourth and fifth season — a total of 26 new episodes — in response to the show’s bump in viewership, Wednesday’s episode of Workaholics, “Booger Nights,” will kick off the return of Adam, Blake, and Ders to basic cable since last summer’s finale, “Flashback in the Day.”

DeVine enjoyed additional fame and success in the offseason with a role in Pitch Perfect, the latest tween-oriented musical comedy to find success on the silver screen.

While in offseason, all three stars will also appear as airline workers in an episode of the upcoming season of the revived Arrested Development.

With an estimated 2 million viewers set to tune in and high expectations, the latest iteration to the series is sure to be “tight butthole.”
