Fox’s animated comedy Bob’s Burgers has received a renewal for both a seventh season and an eighth season, the network has confirmed. The series, which follows the Belcher family as they operate a hamburger restaurant, has received critical acclaim for much of it’s run, with the exception of it’s bumpy first season back in 2011. The series won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2014, and was also nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2015 but lost to The Penguins of Madagascar, South Park and Over the Garden Wall respectively. The series is developed and executive produced by Loren Bouchard (Lucy: The Daughter of the Devil, Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist) and Jim Dauterive (King of the Hill, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody).
Fox Entertainment President David Madden said in a statement that “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. 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.”
The series features the voice talent of Primetime Emmy Award nominee H. John Benjamin (Archer, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), Primetime Emmy Award Nominee Dan Mintz (Important Things with Demetri Martin, Adventure Time with Finn & Jake), Eugene Mirman (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Flight of the Conchords), Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth, Gravity Falls) and John Roberts (Gravity Falls, Archer), who was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Voice Over Performance for his role as Linda Belcher earlier this year.
