No Foolin’ - Second Season Gets a Date

April 1, 2011

Fanboy Frisbee Art

It seems like the last Fanboy & Chum Chum premiere we saw was back during the Civil War (it was really closer to the first Boer War). But the great news is Nickelodeon is now announcing the show’s second season of 26 half-hours will kick off with a big premiere week beginning April 25th. Each night that week we’ll get a pair of brand new eleven-minute episodes starting a 7:30 p.m., including that first night’s “Where the Boys Aren’t” and “I’m Manarctica.” WARNING: This season is even more insane than the first, so you’re going to want to lay off the sugar for the duration*.
