BBC Three does have the UK broadcast rights to the second season of FX’s comedy series Wilfred, TVWise has confirmed. I’m being told that the BBC is eyeing a summer premiere for the show’s second season, following the conclusion of the Olympic games in London.

Wilfred is based on the Australian TV series of the same name and was developed for American television by David Zuckerman. The series is about a young man, Ryan (Elijah Wood), struggling unsuccessfully to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with Wilfred (Jason Gann), his neighbor’s pet dog. Everyone else sees Wilfred as just a dog, but Ryan sees a crude and somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest Australian bloke in a cheap dog suit.

The show’s second season consists of 13 episodes and is set to debut in the United States on basic cable network FX on Thursday June 28th at 10/9c. TVWise will bring you the UK Premiere Date for the second season of Wilfred just as soon as it announced.
