Chris Hardwick Welcomes Elijah Wood, Gillian Jacobs and Other to The Nerdist
Chris Hardwick’s show, The Nerdist, on BBC America is gearing up for its third season, which is premiering this Saturday, March 30. Filled to the brim with as many “nerdy” guest stars as can be found, The Nerdist takes a look at what it’s like to be a nerd, stimulating great conversation. When the new season premieres, there will be plenty of faces joining Hardwick, some of whom have made appearances on his other talk show, Talking Dead. If you thought the first two seasons had great names from nerd culture, you haven’t seen anything yet.
The 10-episode season will, according to Deadline, feature the likes of 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 Ferdowsi, Jenna-Louise Coleman and more are still to be announced. I can’t help but wonder who else could possibly join the talk show. Maybe throw in some time with David Tennant or Emma Watson. Actually, you could bring on anybody from the Harry Potter franchise and I would be pleased as punch. The episodes will also feature stand up from comedians Kyle Kinane, Matt Kirshen, Natasha Leggero, Paul Scheer, Ron Funches, and Rob Hubel.
The Nerdist airs Saturdays at 10 pm on BBC America’s “Supernatural Saturday” lineup. If you haven’t checked out The Nerdist before, now is a good time to start and it wouldn’t take you long to catch up. The first season only had three episodes and Season 2 had five. However, if you wanted to catch up on the podcast version of the show or any of its offshoots – it has its own YouTube channel as well – you might need to invest a little more time. However you end up watching The Nerdist, you’ll have a good time and feel the uncontrollable desire to tell all your friends about it.
