The wheels are not close to coming off the “Carpool Karaoke” franchise, as a series of new episodes was announced Monday morning for Apple TV+, featuring stars ranging from pop singer Avril Lavigne to TV star Sheryl Lee Ralph to current Broadway queen Lea Michele.
The eight new “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” episodes will bow globally on the platform on June 23.
While most of the installments pair up two stars, three of the episodes promise to incorporate the cast of a series: Netflix’s “Girls5eva,” CBS’ “Ghosts” and Apple TV+’s “The Afterparty.”
Some of the partners in carpooling have a joint project to promote. Alison Brie and Danny Pudi, for instance, are not only mutual “Community” alumni but recently reunited for the rom-com “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Not coincidentally, a teaser that was already posted for their “Karaoke” episode has them singing the Gotye song of that same name.
Driving pals Avril Lavigne and Yungblud, meanwhile, released a new collaborative song in January, “I’m a Mess.”
The full list of fresh episodes due in June:
Yungblud & Avril Lavigne
Cedric The Entertainer & Sheryl Lee Ralph
Alanis Morissette & Cara Delevingne
Lea Michele and Darren Criss
The cast of “Girls5eva”
The cast of “Ghosts”
