Comedian Bill Burr’s raunchy, hilarious look at the 70s gets picked up for one more season.
Netflix has renewed the hilariously expletive-laden 1970s-era animated comedy series, F Is for Family, for a fifth and final season, according to Vulture. Production is already underway, with a release set for next year. Season 4, which guest stars Breaking Bad fixer Jonathan Banks as Frank Murphy’s dad, Big Bill Murphy, premiered June 12.
According to the report, executive producer Michael Price said, “I’m thrilled that we get to do one more season with the Murphys,” while also stating that he would be “forever grateful” to execs at Netflix and the show’s studios for making it possible to “share this stressed-out, foulmouthed, and loving family with the world.”
Inspired by the life of stand-up comic Bill Burr, who voices the lead role, the series “transports viewers back to the 1970s, a time when political correctness, helicopter parenting, and indoor smoking bans weren’t part of anyone’s vocabulary, let alone the norm.” The show is created by Burr and Emmy Award winner Price. It also features the voices of Laura Dern, Justin Long, Haley Reinhart, Sam Rockwell, Debi Derryberry, Mo Collins, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Phil Hendrie.
Produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television in association with Gaumont International Television, F Is for Family is executive produced by co-creators Burr and Price alongside Vaughn, Peter Billingsley, Katie O'Connell, Elisa Todd Ellis, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee.
