Drunk History on Comedy Central has been renewed for a season 3.

“History aficionados and business experts…we give you reason to cheer. Comedy Central’s acclaimed series Drunk History and Nathan For You have each been renewed for a third season,” the network announced earlier this summer.

“Drunk History is executive produced by Derek Waters, Jeremy Konner, along with Gary Sanchez Productions’ Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Chris Henchy and Owen Burke.”

Waters told IBTimes that he’s not nervous that the concept of the show is getting old going into the third season.

“I think the day you stop getting nervous is when you get lazy, so I don’t think I’m going to use the word nervous anymore–I’m excited to make sure it doesn’t get old,,” he said.

“I’m not nervous anymore because getting a third season gives you a little more confidence that people get it and now we can get away with things like [Aug. 26’s Sports Heroes episode], being able to have a story that took place not that long ago to a human who’s amazing, who’s still alive, Jim Abbot, opens the door to a lot of things and, not to be cheesy, but there will always be history.

“So, all that matters to me is finding the best stories. I’m not trying to change to world, just make people laugh…and trick them into learning something.”

He also discussed the premise of the show.

“I think audiences are very smart and you can always tell when things are forced. I think the biggest misconception is people who think they aren’t really that drunk,” he said.

“Everybody holds their alcohol differently and some people are better at it where it seems like they aren’t drunk, but I do believe just having good stories is what will sustain the show. The drinking is just what gets people to tune in.”

And he emphasized that it’s still the same amount of drinking.

There’s no premiere date for season 3 as of yet.
