Fox has announced the renewal of one of its animated series, according to Deadline.com. The network has ordered a fourth season — 22 episodes — of “Bob’s Burgers,” the story reports.
The renewal comes after Fox ordered six additional scripts for the show back in August.
Said Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly: “We love ‘Bob’s.’ 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 report notes: “While not a breakout, ‘Bob’s Burgers’ has been an OK ratings performer and a favorite of Fox’s brass. It recently was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program. Airing for the first time in the fall in the hammock 8:30 PM slot between ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Family Guy,’ ‘Bob’s Burgers’ has posted the greatest year-to-year growth of any returning broadcast series in the male demos, according to Fox.”
