ABC Renews ‘The Gong Show’ for a Second Season

ABC’s revival of The Gong Show is returning with another batch of episodes. According to The Wrap, the network has officially renewed the Will Arnett-produced series, which was originally ordered back in October 2016, for a second season, which will go into production sometime later this year. In addition to the renewal, ABC’s announcement included the first official confirmation that British host Tommy Maitland is indeed played by Mike Myers. “Being the host of The Gong Show is a blast! Pure fun. It is with great delight that I can finally admit that there is indeed a Tommy Maitland, and that I portray him,” Myers said. “I was just as surprised as the next guy when I heard The Gong Show’s host, Tommy Maitland, was a character portrayed by the insanely talented Mike Myers,” added Arnett. “Despite this shocking news, I’m in total awe of the man, and we are so fortunate to have him as our brilliant host.”
