Here’s The Guest Lineup For The Nerdist TV Show on BBC America


So, BBC America has announced the guest lineup for the new season of The Nerdist, and here you go:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Dominic Monaghan, Elijah Wood, Matt Smith, Katee Sackhoff, Tatiana Maslany, Michael Rooker, Guillermo Del Toro, Gillian Jacobs, Robert Kirkman, Buzz Aldrin, Karen Gillan, Bobak Ferdowski, Jenna-Louise Coleman, and more.

More? How about stand-up performances from Ron Funches, Kyle Kinane, Matt Kirshen, Natasha Leggero, Rob Huebel, and Paul Scheer, plus, yes, more?

Not bad, huh?

The season opener, airing Saturday, March 30th at 10/9c after the half-season premiere of Doctor Who and the debut of BBC America’s new series Orphan Black, features Dominic Monaghan, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany, and comic Matt Kirshen. The following week, on April 6th, you’ll get Robert Kirkman and Michael Rooker talking Dead, plus Karen Gillan as “celebrity correspondent” and Kyle Kinane doing some stand-up. Those are pretty strong lineups, plus you get Chris, Jonah, Matt, and Phirm and an expanded hour-long format with more of everything. I was at one of the tapings this past weekend (with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gillian Jacobs) and I can assure you that if you like the Nerdist podcast and/or anything else Nerdist, you will love this show.

Saturdays, 10/9c, beginning this coming Saturday night, BBC America. (And Sundays 7/6c/4p on Space in Canada). Gotta watch.
