The Vice Principals series finale is getting set to air on HBO Sunday night, and based on everything we’ve seen so far one thing appears likely: Pure insanity. While it seemed as though Neal Gamby got most of what he wanted in the last episode — his relationship with Amanda Snodgrass is back on track and Lee Russell is gone as principal — there is still a major unresolved issue. While it seems as though Russell is the person responsible for shooting him, that’s not confirmed. There’s a big reveal coming, and knowing Danny McBride it’s not going to go down in the most predictable way.
Just in case you needed another reason to watch the finale, check out the tease that McBride offered up to Entertainment Weekly:
“We designed this show to be 18 episodes, and you’re entering the last half-hour of the series … And if you thought the rest of the series has been unhinged and f—ked up, then just sit down and watch what’s next.”
Would CarterMatt like to see a third season of Vice Principals? Probably, just because this show is so nuts and it is completely different than anything else that is out there on TV at the moment. Unfortunately, the odds of that are pretty unlikely. The show averaged around 690,000 live viewers for season 2 — a decent number given that many people watch after the fact, but not a number that represents a home run. McBride also likes to make these shows with limited runs. If this show has a fitting end (or at least a fitting end for this world), the more likely scenario is that you are going to see him move forward and create another equally-crazy show for HBO in the future. At the moment, this is certainly what we would like to see.
