Peter Davidson’s Peacock series Bupkis has been given the green light for a second season (via Variety). This news doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, considering the series got fairly warm reviews from both critics and audiences. It seems like the viewership numbers were also strong enough to warrant another round of episodes.

Bupkis follows Pete Davidson as a semi-autobiographical version of himself as he juggles his family and his fame. Along with starring. in the series, Davidson co-wrote the series with Judah Miller and Dave Sirus. Miller serves as showrunner, and all three co-writers also serve as executive producers along with Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, and Erin David.

Pete Davidson assembled an impressive cast for Bupkis, that includes The Sopranos‘ Edie Falco as his mother and Joe Pesci as his grandfather. The list of guest stars for the first season was arguably just as impressive as the main cast, with appearances from Brad Garrett, Charlie Day, Kenan Thompson, Simon Rex, Ray Romano, Chase Sui Wonders, La La Anthony, Charlamagne Tha God, Colson Baker, Steve Buscemi, Bobby Cannavale, Al Gore, John Mulaney, Oona Roche, Cliff “Method Man” Smith, Jon Stewart, and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

It’ll be interesting to see the guest stars that Davidson will nab for the second season.

There’s no word on when we can expect to see the second season of Bupkis, but it’s unlikely that they will do too much work on it until the WGA strike is resolved. Pete Davidson was set to make his return and host Saturday Night Live after leaving the show, but SNL shut the season down early for the writer’s strike. It seems likely that SNL will bring Davdison back to host another time, but for now, that hosting gig will have to wait.

While we wait to hear more about Pete Davidson’s second season of Bupkis, you can currently see (or hear) him in the blockbuster Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Davidson voices Mirage, who is one of the Autobots. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts continues the soft reboot of the franchise following Bumblebee and sees the Autobots teaming up with the Maximals to save the Earth.

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is directed by Steven Caple Jr. and stars Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback as the main human characters. Along with Pete Davidson, the voices of the various Transformers include Ron Perlman, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Yeoh, Liza Koshy, Michaela Jae Rodriguez, Colman Domingo, Peter Cullen, John DiMaggio, and David Sobolov. While critics have been a little harsh on the film, audiences have been loving it.

Fans can also look forward to seeing Pete Davidson in the film Dumb Money, which is based on the recent real-life tale of Gamestop stocks skyrocketing after investors found out that hedge funds were shorting the company. Along with Davidson, the cast list includes Paul Dano, Anthony Ramos, Seth Rogen, Shailene Woodley, Nick Offerman, America Ferrera, Vincent D’onofrio, Myha’la Herrold, Clancy Brown, Dane DeHaan, and Sebastian Stan. That film is set to come out on September 22.
