Fox renews 'Bob's Burgers' for a sixth season
Bob’s Burgers has been renewed for season 6, EW has learned.
The Emmy-winning animated comedy, which will return for 22 episodes, kicked off its fifth season up 60% from last year’s finale. Its most recent episode drew 3.95 million viewers and a 2.0 in the 18-49 demographic, down from its Family Guy lead in, but still higher in the demo than timeslot competitors The Good Wife and Resurrection.
“We can’t help but love the Belcher family,” said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of the Fox Television Group. “This gem of a series is a rare feel-good blend of sharp wit and genuine heart that fans and critics alike have continued to love throughout its five seasons on Fox. We are proud of Loren and Jim and the extremely talented voice cast who bring these unique characters to life with both humor and charm each week. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for Season Six.”
Bob’s Burgers airs Sundays at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
The animated series from Loren Bouchard follows the world of the Belcher family and their burger joint.
