Fox Renews ‘Bob’s Burgers’ for Season 5


Bob’s Burgers will be around for years to come. Fox announced today that they’ve renewed the animated comedy for a fifth season that will consist of 22 episodes. Season 5 will air during the 2014-15 TV season, while Season 4 is set to debut this Sunday along with the rest of Fox’s animated block. Bob’s Burgers earned its second Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Comedy Series this year.

Bob’s Burgers is the first show from Fox’s Sunday night animated lineup to be renewed for 2014-15. Because of how much longer it takes to prep animated shows, they’re typically renewed in the fall of the previous season rather than the spring, when networks hand out new season orders to live action shows. It was previously reported that American Dad! will be moving from Fox to TBS for 2014-15, while The Simpsons and Family Guy await an official renewal for their 26th and 13th seasons, respectively.
