It′s back to school for Oxygen′s CAMPUS LADIES. The critically-acclaimed improv comedy series is set to return to Oxygen for its second season Tuesday, December 5 at 11:00 PM EST with ten half-hour episodes. The series follows Joan (Carrie Aizley) & Barri (Christen Sussin), two middle-aged housewives (one a widow, the other a divorcee), who decide it′s better to be a freshman at 40 than unhappy housewives forever and enroll in school in search for the wild college years they missed the first time around.

New this season is the addition of some of Hollywood′s top actors and comedians joining as guest stars, including Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Sean Hayes (Will & Grace), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Penny Marshall, Beverly D′Angelo (Entourage), Janeane Garofalo (Reality Bites) Mo′Nique (Mo′Nique′s Fat Chance), Rob Corddry (The Daily Show), Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Rob Riggle (The Daily Show). Campus Ladies also will feature guest spots behind the camera when Jason Alexander and executive producer Cheryl Hines direct episodes.

"These ladies created quite a stir last season," says Debby Beece, President, Oxygen Programming & Marketing. "CAMPUS LADIES proved itself as a new brand of comedy for women. We′re looking forward to hilarious new episodes this season with a great line-up of today′s hottest actors and comedians as guest stars."

The series is executive produced by Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), comediennes Aizley and Sussin, Paul Young, Peter Principato and co-executive producer E. Brian Dobbins of Principato-Young Entertainment (Reno 911!). Aizley and Sussin developed Campus Ladies while performing with the famous improv comedy troupe, The Groundlings.
