Update, July 10: Channel 5 launches on Monday, July 15, on AdultSwim.com, featuring four new shows.
Original Story: Have you ever wanted to watch all of Tim & Eric’s shows and comedy bits in one place? Well, now’s your time. The long-awaited Channel 5 is coming this July, according to a new teaser released Friday.
Shared via Tim Heidecker’s Twitter, the trailer sees Heidecker and Eric Wareheim explaining their idea to put all of their various shows in one place for all of our viewing pleasure. But in a very Tim & Eric way, the teaser features various uses of green screen and a deadpan humor so particular to the duo. The teaser also introduces a new show or two that’ll be on the channel.
The first one, Scum, seems outright crazy. Our Bodies deals with the duo questioning a doctor on the important issues of health. And lastly, Tim & Eric Qu?z features the duo’s biggest fans going head-to-head in, you guessed it, a quiz. Are these shows even real? There’s no way to know!
Channel 5 was initially announced just under a year ago in July 2018 with a similar teaser posted to Adult Swim’s YouTube channel. According to the original trailer, the streaming platform is set to appear on Adult Swim’s website. Despite the unexplained delay, one thing’s for certain about the forthcoming platform: It’s smokin’.
