Comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler will be back for a second season of Netflix’s Chelsea, with the series moving to weekly, one-hour episodes.

This is a switch from the show’s previous format of three half-hour episodes per week. Netflix promises the sophomore season will be “louder and bolder especially in today’s political climate.”

Season two premieres April 14 and includes 30 episodes which will become available on Fridays at 12 p.m. PT. Netflix released key art for the return:

Future episodes include guests such as Charlize Theron (4/21); Rosario Dawson, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Senator Cory Booker (4/28); and an Education Dinner Party with Jim Parsons, Rashida Jones, Gaby Hoffmann, and Mary McCormack (5/5).
