Fox is clearly pretty confident in Bob’s Burgers, as it ordered a fifth season of the show today. The show’s fourth season hasn’t even started yet.
“Bob’s Burgers is one of those rare finds that just continues to outdo itself, creatively,” Kevin Reilly, Fox’s Chairman of Entertainment, said in a statement. “The show has become a key member of our Sunday animation domination family, and we’re looking forward to attracting new fans with another season.”
While Burgers doesn’t get quite as much attention as Fox’s other animated comedies (ahem, Family Guy), it does have a pretty large cult following. Additionally, according to Fox, it was one of only two broadcast comedies to post year-over-year gains during its third season.
