The undead will continue to live on at Comedy Central. Well, for now, at least. This time around, execs at the comedy juggernaut have elected to spare Ugly Americans, the animated series from David M. Stern (he of Simpsons fame), the wooden stake through the heart of cancellation. Rather, seven additional episodes of the series have been ordered, to begin airing in October.

It’s not a tricky decision to understand, given that the animated series – which revolves around a gaggle of mythical beasts and creatures attempting to thrive in NYC – has drawn in an estimated 2.1 million viewers over the course of its premiere season since its debut on March 17.

“Once you add zombies, demons, and werewolves into the New York City melting pot, you have something for everyone,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s head of original programming and development. “Ugly Americans is the feel-good show for our depraved audience.”

Tonight at 10:30 pm EST, Ugly Americans takes the piss out of the Twilight saga. Check out a preview below.
