Fox has ordered a seventh and eighth season of the critically acclaimed animated series Bob’s Burgers, Variety reports.
“Six seasons in, the Belchers have become one of America’s most beloved TV families, and we are so happy to keep them in the fold for another two seasons,” said David Madden, Fox Broadcasting Company President in a statement. “Bob’s Burgers is hilarious, warm, smart, inventive – critics love it, and so do fans. Loren, Jim and the brilliant voice cast continue to surprise us in the best ways, and we look forward to seeing what Bob and the family will cook up in Seasons Seven and Eight.”
The 2014 Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Animated Program, was nominated for two 2015 Emmy Awards, including its fourth nomination for Outstanding Animated Program and its first for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance (John Roberts).
The news comes as the series prepares for its 100th episode which will air next year.
“In a way your 100th episode should be almost like your pilot all over again. I think a good 100th episode shouldn’t be big and crazy. It should be the quintessential Bob’s Burgers episode,” show creator, Loren Bouchard told The Hollywood Reporter in September ahead of the season six premiere.
Bob’s Burgers counts Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman and H. Jon Benjamin among its strong voice talent. Season 6 is set to feature a hugely promising round up of celebrity guests, including: Paul Rudd, Jemaine Clement, Bret McKenzie, Rhys Darby, Jordan Peele, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Eichner, Jenny Slate, Steve Buscemi, Henry Winkler, and Keegan-Michael Key.
