“Bob’s Burgers” has been renewed for a fifth season, before the fourth even begins.
Fox entertainment chairman announced Thursday that he has ordered 22 episodes of the animated series.
“’Bob’s Burgers’ is one of those rare finds that just continues to outdo itself, creatively,” he said Reilly. “The show has become a key member of our Sunday Animation Domination family, and we’re looking forward to attracting new fans with another season.”
Last season, the show was a Top 10 comedy among men 18-49 and men 18-34, as well as male teens. It also posted year-over-year gains.
The show follows Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob’s Burgers with his wife, Linda (John Roberts), and their three kids, Tina (Dan Mintz), Gene (Eugene Mirman) and Louise (Kristen Schaal).
The 20th Century Fox Television and Bento Box Entertainment production was created by Loren Bouchard (“Home Movies”). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive (“King of the Hill”) serve as executive producers and writers.
The show returns for its fourth season on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 8:30/7:30c.
