Fox renews Bob’s Burgers for season 11!
After being a staple for the network for nearly a decade now, Fox has chosen to greenlight an eleventh season of the Emmy-winning animated comedy Bob’s Burgers, while fellow Sunday night series Family Guy and The Simpsons are currently in the middle of two-season orders, according to Deadline.
Bob’s Burgers, which first premiered on FOX TV in January 2011, has become a firm favorite of critics and fans, prompting wildly enthusiastic reviews and generating a whirlwind of viewer interaction on social media and through live events. Between its Sunday night airings on FOX and Hulu, nearly 8 million people watch the show in the US and its popularity is growing internationally.
The series follows the lives, loves and misadventures of the Belcher family and their friends and rivals. Bob Belcher runs a hamburger restaurant in a seaside town, with his ever-optimistic wife Linda and their three children: the self-conscious Tina, goofball Gene and precocious Louise. The cast is led by H. Jon Benjamin (Archer), Dan Mintz (Adventure Time), Eugene Mirman (Delocated), Larry Murphy (Ugly Americans), John Roberts (Gravity Falls) and Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth).
Since launch, the show has won numerous awards, including two Emmys, spawned a best-selling cookbook, and a soundtrack album. For the last three years the show has gone on the road with the Bob’s Burgers Live tour, selling out venues across the United States. Fan loyalty was also celebrated with a special fan-drawn Season 8 premiere in 2017 and whose ninth season currently airs on Sunday nights.
A film adaptation of the series is currently in development and is slated to hit theaters on April 9, 2021.
