You can finally watch History of the World Part 2 online, and that's one piece of history that comedy legend Mel Brooks probably couldn't have predicted back in 1981.
History of the World Part 2 episode 1 and 2 premiered on Hulu (opens in new tab) on Monday (March 6th) at 12 a.m. ET.
Yes, the original History of the World Part I included a whole coda (post-movie bit) about how there wouldn't be a follow-up, even though part 1 was in the title. Alas, Brooks is back — streaming services need content — and he's delivering his signature spin on humanity's history.
Segments will cover everything from the American Civil War to the "real" Kama Sutra and from Alexander Graham Bell's first calls to Freud's version of psychoanalysis.
This time, he's also joined by a huge new cast of comic geniuses, including Ike Barinholtz, Pamela Adlon, Zazie Beetz, Quinta Brunson, Danny DeVito, David Duchovny, Josh Gad, Richard Kind, Johnny Knoxville, Sam Richardson, Seth Rogen, Sarah Silverman, David Wain, Reggie Watts, Tyler James Williams, Wanda Sykes and Nick Kroll.
Also, Brooks has enlisted Taika Waititi as Sigmund Freud, Jake Johnson as Marco Polo and Hannah Einbinder as Amelia Earhart.
