  • Andre may not have won the Shiva Bowl on The League last season, but did he end the season on a big personal high note.
    "As we left last season, Andre and Trixie were engaged so we are picking up right where that left off with a wedding," co-creator and executive producer Jeff Schaffer said at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews Friday. "I think Andre and Trixie are preparing the most labor-intensive, guest-unfriendly wedding on the planet."

    Andre's upcoming nuptials mean that Jayma Mays will reprise her role as Trixie this season. Additionally, viewers will finally get to meet the two people responsible for bringing Andre into the world: his parents, played by Griffin Dunne (House of Lies) and Glenne Headly, who recently played Ben's mom on Parks and Recreation.
    Although Schaffer teased that "everything is going to be miserable for the guests" at Andre and Trixie's ceremony, star Paul Scheer promised it won't be quite as bad as Game of Thrones' red wedding this last season. "No major characters will be killed at this wedding," Scheer said with a laugh.
    The show's upcoming fifth season will also see Seth Rogen return in what Schaffer called an "absolutely insane" episode centered on Dirty Randy and Rafi (Jason Mantzoukas). Ruxin's sister will also be introduced, but no casting has been announced.
    Season 5 of The League premieres Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 10:30/9:30c on FXX. Are you excited to meet Andre's parents?
