Referring to Comedy Central's decision to reverse a Season 7 pickup to cancel his show after six seasons, creator Derek Waters says he still hasn’t been given an “actual answer why it happened … no one’s called me. I have no idea. I have no verification of it.” Drunk History already filmed the "drunk" portions of Season 7, and now it's unclear whether those scenes will ever see the light of day. According to Variety's Michael Schneider, "among the half-done episodes now sitting on the shelf: Stories about Bruce Lee; the celebrated African American World War I regiment Harlem Hellfighters; Black mail carrier pioneer Stagecoach Mary; 1930s actress Thelma Todd; 1800s abolitionists and Black leaders including Lewis Hayden and James Armistead Lafayette; and comedian Patton Oswalt on the battle between rivals to build the largest ball of twine. Also, Saturday Night Live writer Sam Jay tells the story of Glenn Burke, baseball’s first openly gay player."
