Andrea Savage’s TruTV scripted comedy I’m Sorry is coming back for a third season. The WarnerMedia–owned network said Tuesday it was ordering ten more half-hour episodes of the show, with the new installments scheduled to air next year. While its overall audience is relatively modest — linear broadcasts average around a half-million viewers within three days of premiering, on par with shows like Schitt’s Creek — TruTV says Sorry grew its audience during its second season this past winter. And with WarnerMedia about to get into the streaming wars next year, Sorry may be exactly the type of cult comedy that could find a wider audience via a nonlinear platform.
The show stars Savage as a comedy writer and mom who freely owns what TruTV calls “her inner immaturity and neuroses, with Tom Everett Scott as her husband and Hollywood icons Kathy Baker and Martin Mull as her parents. “I am so, so thrilled to have another season to prove wrong the theory that just because you are a mom, you are not allowed to find buttholes funny,” Savage said in a press release announcing the season-three renewal, tagging her quote with the hashtag “#godswork.”
