‘Bob’s Burgers’ Serving Up A Fourth Season
We don’t do a lot of work covering FOX’s lineup of Sunday Animation Domination apart from the occasional ‘Simpsons‘ and ‘Family Guy‘ guest spots, but one consistent performer that certainly doesn’t get enough attention is that of the most unique series, ‘Bob’s Burgers!’ We can remember thinking it wouldn’t last a season, where now we’ve learned that FOX has officially renewed the series for a fourth season. But how big is FOX’s order, and will Bob be able to serve it up?
Keep the grill hot Bob, because FOX wants at least 22 more burgers. We’ve just learned from a FOX statement that the network has ordered a fourth season of Loren Bouchard’s Jon Benjamin-voiced ‘Bob’s Burgers,’ to consist of 22 all-new episodes beginning in late 2013. The current season is a few weeks into its run, but a lengthy production schedule means that the animated series needs early notice to begin development.
“We love Bob’s,” says Fox Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly. “We are really proud of the way the show has grown over the past three seasons – without losing the unique voice at its core – and we know that the best is yet to come for Bob’s Burgers and its fans.”
The renewal comes as good news for the celebrity community as well, considering the current season of the Emmy-winning series boasts appearances from ‘Mad Men’s’ Jon Hamm, Parks and Recreation‘ stars Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, Kurt Braunohler, ‘Breaking Bad‘ star Bob Odenkirk, ‘SNL‘ alum Will Forte and Fred Armisen, David Wain, ‘Arrested Development‘s Jeffrey Tambor, Linda Lavin, Gary Cole, Aziz Ansari, Paul F. Tompkins, Robert Ben Garant, and Tim Heidecker.
What say you? Are you happy to have a fourth order of ‘Bob’s Burgers?
