ANIMAL CONTROL Season 2 With Joel McHale Preps to Start Filming Mid-December in Vancouver

Season 2 of Fox comedy Animal Control, with Joel McHale as an animal control officer who prefers animals to humans, hopes to start filming mid-December in Vancouver, assuming the SAG-AFTRA strike is settled by then.

Animal Control follows a group of Seattle Animal Control workers whose lives are complicated by the fact that animals are simple, but humans are not.

Thanks to a Super Bowl ad and a baby cougar licking Joel McHale’s face, Animal Control was Fox’s most-streamed scripted debut of all time.

Fox Entertainment Global has since sold the comedy to Canada’s CBC, Australia’s Foxtel, New Zealand’s TVNZ and the UK’s Channel 4.
