Comedy Central is staying stuck in the past with “Another Period.”

The channel has picked up a third season of the show about a wealthy and basically insane turn-of-the-20th-century family and their household staff. The pickup comes three weeks before the show’s Season 2 premiere on June 15.

“We’d like to thank Comedy Central for this continued opportunity to dress like queens and act like a**holes,” co-creators and stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindholme say in a statement.

Leggero and Lindholme star as sisters Lillian and Beatrice Lindholme, who have lived a life of wealth and care mostly about becoming famous. As they live in 1902, that’s not as easy as it may be now.

Season 2 of “Another Period” premieres at 10 p.m. ET/PT June 15 on Comedy Central.
