PROVO, Utah, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BYUtv, the home of inspiring family entertainment – available over cable, satellite and free streaming – today announced that the 10th anniversary, 16th season premiere of fan-favorite “Studio C” will guest star comedic actor Jon Heder (“Napoleon Dynamite,” “Blades of Glory”). The premiere episode is set to release on the BYUtv app on Oct. 2 at 12:01 a.m. MT and on the BYUtv linear network on Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. ET/5 p.m. MT/4 p.m. PT. All aired episodes of the show are always available to stream for free on the BYUtv app and at, and sketches will continue to be featured across social media.
A viral phenom with more than two billion views on YouTube and past guest stars including Emmy winner Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live,” “Kenan”) and Will Forte (“Saturday Night Live,” “The Last Man on Earth”), “Studio C” derives universally loved humor from everyday life through shareable sketches that offer comic perspective on commonplace scenarios and pop culture commentary. Since its premiere in 2012, the family-friendly sketch comedy series has successfully created standout characters like Scott Sterling, hosted a live special in New York City with sold-out audiences and fostered a revolving cast of talented comedians.
“Studio C’ is one of our most beloved legacy series, delivering lots of laughs and lifting people up through comedy,” said Andra Johnson Duke, head of content at BYUtv. “This season is filled with fun surprises for lifelong fans and newcomers alike, including a Halloween night special with a zombie-inspired spin on the show’s opening sequence. To honor our anniversary, fresh faces will unite with returning favorites and iconic characters – a mixture of everything that has made the past 10 years of ‘Studio C’ so memorable and enduring.”
Returning this season are original cast member Jason Gray, Dalton Johnson, Garet Allen and Arvin Mitchell. Megan Rico and Naomi Winders have also been promoted to series regulars, while Joe Balanza, Gabby Moore and Jericho Lopez join as recently added featured cast members. Also back this season is Tori Pence, who was part of the cast from season 8 to season 13.
In celebration of the show’s past, compilation episodes will recap some of the best sketches in “Studio C” history, with themes such as “Back to School,” “Best of Sports” and “Best of TV Parodies.” Each special will be hosted by an original cast member, including Whitney Call, James Perry and Stephen Meek, who will also perform in a digital exclusive sketch. Some of the original cast members are returning behind the camera, as well, with season 16 sketches directed by Jeremy Warner and Natalie Madsen.
The premiere episode of the season will see the cast team up with special guest star Jon Heder, whose breakout role in the 2004 hit comedy “Napoleon Dynamite” catapulted him to stardom. Throughout his career, Heder has appeared in many films such as “Just Like Heaven,” “Surf’s Up” and “Walt Before Mickey.” He recently starred alongside “Studio C”‘s Jason Gray in the 2021 romantic comedy “Funny Thing About Love.” In the season 16 premiere, Heder finds himself at the heart of sketches that take him from a hot air balloon ride with a hilarious twist to a mall trip that escalates beyond his control.
New this season will be a digital exclusive addition called “Studio C+” that features cast members interacting with fans outside of sketches. Most recently, the cast helped younger fans with a bake sale held at a local high school and raised money for Hope Squad, an organization that aims to prevent suicide through public awareness and education. “Studio C” is produced by Kaleidoscope Pictures, with Jake Van Wagoner (“Impractical Jokers,” “Show Offs”) returning as showrunner.
“We put a lot of energy into catering to our social audiences, and it’s fun to see the engagement from our fans as we continue to push the show creatively,” said Van Wagoner. “It’s been great having some of our ‘Studio C’ alumni back. Bridging the gap between original and newer cast members has been exciting and has really made it feel like there is a ‘Studio C’ family.”
