Marc Maron’s IFC series just got a premiere date. The network announced today that season 4 of Maron will debut Wednesday, May 4th with back-to-back episodes at 9:00 and 9:30pm. Here’s some of what we can expect from the new season:
The all-new season of IFC’s original comedy series Maron picks up where the season three cliffhanger left off, with comedian and pioneer podcaster Marc Maron’s fictional alter ego falling off the wagon and quickly descending the ladder of success. Having blown his sobriety, he has now lost it all: house, friends, career, even his cats are all gone. Drug-addled Marc is now squatting in a storage unit and trying to pull himself out of the “excrement bucket.” The upcoming season kicks off with Marc, jobless and friendless, hitting rock bottom and wondering what his questionable future holds. He goes to rehab where he is the only adult, crashes in a sexually awkward sober house, and hangs with his newly successful, but still disturbing friend Dave. The journey may be different this time around, but Marc is the same self-deprecating curmudgeon, and season four’s rocky road to recovery leads him to bond with a wild cast of eccentric new characters.
IFC also confirmed a long list of guest stars slated to appear this season including Ron Perlman, Amy Smart, Randy and Jason Sklar, Constance Zimmer, and Don Stark as well as returning stars Sally Kellerman, Andy Kindler, Whitney Cummings, and Dave Anthony.
