“Alpha House,” the political comedy produced by Amazon Studios about four senators living in a house together, will come back to the internet with a new season on October 24, the company announced today.
The show, which stars John Goodman, Mark Consuelos, Clark Johnson and Matt Malloy, will be entering its second season, following a positive reception from audiences last year. This year, the cast will be joined by a stable of guest stars including Bill Murray, Penn Jillette and Elizabeth Warren.
Like “Transparent,” the critically-acclaimed comedy that Amazon premiered last week, all 10 episodes of Alpha House’s second season will be available to stream at once. That’s a departure from Amazon’s earlier approach – the company previously released a few episodes of its series at first, and then deployed new episodes weekly – and mirrors the schedule used by Netflix, one of Amazon’s closest competitors in the online video space.
