Fox has handed a 22 episode fourth season renewal to animated series Bob’s Burgers. This early renewal is in stark contrast to the network’s position on the series last season, when the show’s third season renewal only came down on the night before Fox’s upfront presentation.
Created by Loren Bouchard, Bob’s Burgers follows a third-generation restaurateur as he runs his own burger joint with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, condiments and sides, but only a few thoughts on customer service and business management. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves. The animated series features the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal.
Speaking of the renewal, Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company, said: “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.”
