FOX has picked up two more seasons of its animated series “Bob’s Burgers.”
The show, currently in its sixth season, will stick around through at least an eighth year in 2017-18.
“Six seasons in, the Belchers have become one of America’s most beloved TV families, and we are so happy to keep them in the fold for another two seasons,” FOX Entertainment chief David Madden says in a statement. “’Bob’s Burgers’ is hilarious, warm, smart, inventive — critics love it, and so do fans. [EPs] Loren [Bouchard], Jim [Dauterive] and the brilliant voice cast continue to surprise us in the best ways.”
“Bob’s Burgers” has aired only once so far this season because of an NFL pre-emption on Sunday, Oct. 4. The most recent Renew/Cancel standings had it as a tossup for renewal, but now fans won’t have to worry about that.
