FOX announced today that they have renewed the Emmy Award-nominated “Bob’s Burgers” for a fifth season, ordering 22 additional episodes of the hit animated series.
’Bob’s Burgers’ is one of those rare finds that just continues to outdo itself, creatively, says Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. The show has become a key member of our Sunday ‘Animation Domination’ family, and we’re looking forward to attracting new fans with another season.
“Bob’s Burgers” follows the ups and downs of Bob (Benjamin), who runs Bobs Burgers with the help of his wife, Linda (Roberts), and their three kids, Tina (Dan Mintz), Gene (Eugene Mirman) and Louise (Kristen Schaal). Bob has big ideas about burgers, but his family falls short on service. Despite the greasy counters and lousy location, Bob and his family are determined to make every Grand Re-Re-Re-opening a success. This past season, the series received its second Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Animated Comedy Series.
In the upcoming season premiere, A River Runs Through Bob, airing this Sunday, Sept. 29 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), Linda (John Roberts) and the kids go on a camping adventure and face the perils of nature… and Bob’s intestines.
A 20th Century Fox Television and Bento Box Entertainment production, “Bob’s Burgers” was created by Loren Bouchard (Home Movies). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive (King of the Hill) serve as executive producers and writers.
