The Mr Show with Bob and David duo are back again for another cult comedy called Guru Nation. David Cross couldn’t hold back his excitement as he took to Twitter to announce on Tuesday, February 1 2022.
His tweet reads, “After a year of having to be coy and secretive about this, it gives me great pleasure to let y’’all know about this new project Bob and I are working on. It’s going to be unlike anything we’ve done so far. Get ready to have your pants blown wide open!”

The half-hour docu-style comedy show will feature Better Call Saul lead actor and Arrested Development veteran as rival cult gurus who upstage the minds of their oblivious fans.
Jason Woliner will direct the series while Bill Odenkirk, who previously produced Mr Show, will have at it in this one as well.
Guru Nation is another one of Paramount+ latest original TV content, alongside the upcoming Fatal Attraction, The Italian Job, Love Story and Parallax View.
Bob Odenkirk and Cross were first seen together in the sketch comedy series Mr Show with Bob and David that aired for four seasons from 1995 to 1998. The two introduced semi-fictionalized versions of themselves before moving to a combination of pre-taped episodes and on-stage performances in front of a live audience.
The series saw the introduction of several alternative comedians as both writers and cast members like Jack Black, Tom Kenny, Jill Talley, Dino Stamatopoulos, Paul F. Tompkins, Brian Posehn, Sarah Silverman, Karen Kilgariff, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Scott Aukerman.
Mr Show won a Golden Satellite Award nomination as well as four Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
Meanwhile, Odenkirk wraps up AMC’s Better Call Saul, whose series finale is set to premiere later in 2022.
