Between Two Ferns, the long-running interview series where comedian and actor Zach Galifianakis devises inventive insults for celebrity guests, is getting the Netflix movie treatment. Coming to the streaming platform on September 20 in the form of a feature-length film, Between Two Ferns: The Movie follows Galifianakis's antics on the road to redemption.

'Why redemption?' you might ask. After almost killing Matthew McConaughey on set, Galifianakis and his crew venture out to rebuild his reputation as skilled, non-murderous, celebrity conversationalist. The result is a long string of star-studded interviews paying homage to the Between Two Ferns sketches fans know and love. 

If the trailer is any indication, Between Two Ferns: The Movie will feature an impressive cast and Galifianakis's signature apathetic absurdity. Here's everything there is to know about the upcoming Netflix comedy.
