Stan today announced the acclaimed comedy series Rutherford Falls, co-created by Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation) and starring Ed Helms (The Office, The Hangover),has been renewed for a second season.
“We are beyond ecstatic for Season 2! I’m probably slightly biased, but Rutherford Falls is made by the best writers, cast, and crew, on earth. Not to mention Ed Helms and Mike Schur, two of the nicest guys in the business,” said Co-Creator, Executive Producer and Showrunner Sierra Teller Ornelas.
Rutherford Falls represents a breakthrough moment in Native representation in comedy television both in front of and behind the camera.
Rutherford Falls is one of the largest Indigenous writer’s rooms on television with five Native writers staffed on the series including co-creator and executive producer Sierra Teller Ornelas (Navajo), Bobby Wilson (Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota), Tai Leclaire (Kanien’kehá:ka [Mohawk Nation]/Mi’kmaq), Jana Schmieding (Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux), and Tazbah Chavez (Bishop Paiute/Diné/San Carlos Apache). Jana Schmieding (Cheyenne River Lakota Sioux) and Michael Greyeyes ([Nêhiyaw (Plains Cree) from Muskeg Lake Cree Nation – Treaty Six Territory in Saskatchewan]) star in the series.
Season one of the series has reached a remarkable 94% on Rotten Tomatoes earning “Certified Fresh” status.

The series stars Ed Helms (The Office, The Hangover), Jana Schmieding, Michael Greyeyes (I Know This Much Is True), Jesse Leigh (Heathers) and Dustin Milligan (Schitt’s Creek).
Rutherford Falls is from co-creators and executive producers Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation, The Good Place), Ed Helms (The Office) and Sierra Teller Ornelas (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore).
