Mission to Zyxx is a hilarious, fully improvised sci-fi show from UCB alums Jeremy Bent, Alden Ford, Allie Kokesh, Seth Lind, Winston Noel and Moujan Zolfaghari. One thing that makes this show truly special is that after the improv happens, Shane O’Connell sits down and spends hours and hours lovingly sound designing the episode to fully transport you to the Zyxx Quadrant, or – as they call it – the “ass end of space.”
Another thing to know about Mission to Zyxx is that they produce the show in seasons, which is unusual for MaxFun shows. As part of the transition to our network, the crew will be producing great content for you during the off-season, and the show IS going to be supported by monthly memberships. Mission to Zyxx is going to debut their 3rd season during the upcoming MaxFunDrive, BUT we wanted to tell you all about it right now, so you have time to catch up on Seasons 1 and 2 before Season 3 premieres. So go subscribe on your favorite podcast app and listen to the fun mini-sode that they just released to get amped for Season 3!
