Julia Fox is about to meet her match. Ziwe is heading back to Showtime to finish the second season of her self-titled talk show, and Fox is slated to be one of many iconic guests. The late-night series — which premiered in 2021 and centers around the comedian interviewing controversial figures with an occasional song and dance in between — will return to the streamer on November 18th, then on air on November 20th.
So far we’ve seen Ziwe interview everyone from supermodel Emily Ratajkowski and anonymous Hollywood gossip blogger DeuxMoi, to (misinformed) radio host Charlamagne Tha God, and the Hanks family outlier, Chet — right in time for white boy summer round two? Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps and 30 Rock actress Jane Krakowski were also involved in the madness.
The now infamous show puts its guests in the hot seat, while Ziwe asks questions that are meant to trip them up. In the series trailer Ziwe proudly said, “Season 2, we are starting fresh,” but the interviewers unnerving questions and the puzzling responses they prompt have remained.
In one episode, Ziwe asked Ratajkowski, “What does empowerment mean to you?” The model then quizzically responded, “I don’t know what empowerment means.” In another, Broad City actress Ilana Glazer stared blankly at Ziwe before admitting she was “uncomfortable.” And later in the season, Charlamagne tried to debate whether facts “exist.” All that’s to say, season two, part two, should be just as entertaining.
Ziwe is, in short, a mess. But a fun one at that! While we wait for the season to unfold, check out everything we know about her next round of guests.
