Bill Burr's F is for Family: Teaser, premiere date for new Netflix series

Posted on

Netflix

Get ready for a new show to binge. Comedian Bill Burr announced that his new animated comedy F is for Family will premiere on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 18 with six epsiodes. Burr made the announcement on his Monday Morning Podcast, and then later tweeted out a teaser video for the show that confirms the premiere date.

F is for Family will be based on Burr’s explosive stand-up, focusing in particular on his views on the absurdity of political correctness. The animated comedy is set in the 1970s, following the lives of the Murphy family. Burr voices the father Frank, Laura Dern will voice his wife Sue, and Justin Long and Haley Reinhart will voice their children Kevin and Bill. The show is co-created by Michael Price, the Emmy and Writer’s Guild winning writer for The Simpsons.

This isn’t Burr’s first time working with Netflix — the comedian’s special You People Are All The Same was released as an exclusive for the streaming service. The cynical adult animated comedy is already drawing some comparisons to another Netflix original series: BoJack Horseman. Seeing as BoJack has proven itself as such a success for the streaming service, the decision to try to replicate it with Burr’s show may have well been a major reason Netflix developed it. It’s all just speculation at this point, though — we’ll have to wait until Dec. 18 to watch the new series.
