Amazon officially announced that it will bring two additional seasons of comedy “Catastrophe,” written by and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, to U.S. subscribers.

The e-commerce giant currently offers the first two season of “Catastrophe” on Amazon Prime Video. The show is produced for U.K. broadcaster Channel 4, which on Tuesday announced that it had greenlit the third and fourth seasons. The third, six-episode season will go into production in November for a premiere on Channel 4 next year.

Amazon said the third season of “Catastrophe” is scheduled to premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. in 2017, and the fourth season is expected to premiere in 2018.

“Few series have proven themselves as personal and compelling while deftly balancing comedy and drama,” says Joe Lewis, head of half-hour TV for Amazon Studios. “Like an ever-growing family, two more seasons of ‘Catastrophe’ will give our customers more love, laughter, and occasional insults yelled very loudly.”
