    The cast for Bupkis continues to grow. 

    Pete Davidson's semi-autobiographical Peacock comedy has added Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), former Saturday Night Live co-star Kenan Thompson, Ray Romano, Brad Garrett, Simon Rex (Red Rocket), and Chase Sui Wonders (Bodies Bodies Bodies) in guest star roles. Details about their characters have not been revealed.

    Bupkis, a fictionalized telling of Davidson's life, will star Davidson alongside the already announced Edie Falco as Pete's mom and Joe Pesci as his grandfather. 

    Judah Miller (Crashing, King of the Hill) will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the series, with Saturday Night Live head Lorne Michaels will also executive produce and Jason Orley (I Want You Back) set to direct and co-executive produce. 

    Bupkis is expected to premiere on Peacock sometime in 2023.
