Web Series 'Burning Love' Will Once Again Make the Leap to TV Courtesy of E!

The critically acclaimed and Emmy-nominated web series “Burning Love” is returning to television.

The celebrity-filled web series, which mercilessly satirizes TV shows like “The Bachelor” that attempt to find “true love” in front of cameras, already wrapped its third season online at Yahoo! Screen. But E!, which aired the first season of “Burning Love” as a TV series starting in February of this year, will begin airing episodes from the second and third season in weekly half-hour segments starting on Wednesday, November 13th.

At the start of second season, season one contestant and dental hygienist Julie Gristlewhite (June Diane Raphael) returns, with host Bill
Trundle (Michael Ian Black) introducing a group of subpar suitors to vie for her heart. The men include characters played by famous actors and comedians like Adam Brody, Michael Cera, Colin Hanks, Ryan Hansen, Rob Huebel, Brandon
Johnson, Nick Kroll, Kumail Nanjiani, Jerry O’Connell, Paul Scheer, Adam
Scott, Martin Starr, Nick Thune and Joe Lo Truglio. Season three takes a “Bachelor Pad” approach, with past contestants returning for a cash prize of… $900?

“Burning Love” exists in online installments of around 11-13 minutes, which have been grouped to make up a TV-friendly half-hour.
