No remorse here: After Sunday’s episode of Survivor’s Remorse reached a new record viewership, Starz announced Wednesday that they would be renewing the LeBron James-produced comedy for season 4.
“I’m incredibly proud of the team at Survivor’s Remorse and what we’ve built,” James said in a statement. “The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made Survivor’s Remorse a success and the team at Starz for all of their support.”
Survivor’s Remorse follows Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher), a young basketball star who moves his family with him to Atlanta after signing a lucrative contract with the city’s professional team (purposely not referred to as the Hawks, for licensing reasons).
This season has had a decidedly darker tone as the Calloway family deals with the climactic season 2 death of Uncle Julius (Mike Epps), but that hasn’t deterred its audience. According to Starz, season 3 has averaged 2.9 million viewers per episode — an increase of 20 percent from season 2 and 60 percent from season 1.
