F Is for Family has been renewed for Season 3.
The Netflix animation, created by comedian Bill Burr and Michael Price, transports viewers back to the 1970s, a time when political correctness, helicopter parenting and indoor smoking bans weren’t part of anyone’s vocabulary, let alone the norm.
Featuring the voices of Burr, Laura Dern, Justin Long and Sam Rockwell, the adult comedy returned for a second season this month, which was bigger, brasher and more blasphemous than ever.
“Ranging from slapstick, to morally dubious, to outright sharp as a tack, the scripts are often polished and presented as both an entertaining fictional animated sitcom and a drama that’s relatable enough to be viewed as a stark bite of real life,” we wrote in our review, which described it as “pleasantly enjoyable to binge through or dip into whenever you need a cynical laugh”.
Now, within weeks of that premiere, the show has already been commissioned for a third season. Burr, who has several stand-up specials on the streaming service, announced the news on Twitter.
F Is for Family’s renewal arrives at a time when Netflix is increasingly choosing to cancel projects for a variety of reasons, including them being too expensive or not popular enough to justify their production costs. The Get Down, Sense8 and Girlboss have all been axed in recent weeks.
