IFC Brings Back 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret' for 3rd Season

David Cross is bringing his comedy The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret back to IFC for a third season. After a three-year hiatus, the show will return to IFC in 2015 with six all new episodes. Production will begin early next year.

Based in London, the series is created, written by and stars Cross as Todd Margaret, an American lacking and sense of good judgment. The new season will pick up where the second season left off when Todd detonates a battery of nuclear bombs that incinerate the planet.

"As thrilled as I am to not have to answer the question, 'Hey man, will there be a third series of Todd Margaret or what?' anymore, the true thrill comes in figuring out how to extend a serialized episodic in which the world blows up at the end of series two. How do you do that for six episodes?! Well Shaun, Mark and I are up to the challenge," said Cross. "I sincerely couldn't ask for a better group of folks to be doing it for than the lovely ladies (and one dude now) at IFC. It is such a pleasure to work for them. They are a rarity in this business.

"Perhaps it was a poor decision for Todd to end the world, but working with David to bring this series back is a great decision for the fans," said IFC President Jennifer Caserta. "We look forward to welcoming Todd Margaret and whoever else survived the apocalyptic blast back to IFC in 2015."

Alongside Cross, the first two seasons of the comedy starred Will Arnett, Sharon Horgan and Blake Harrison, with guest stars Janeane Garofalo, Jon Hamm, Spike Jonze, Amber Tamblyn and Russ Tamblyn. It's currently unclear who - if any - will return for the third season.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is produced for IFC by Merman Films in the UK. The series is written by Cross, Shaun Pye and Mark Chappell. The producer for Merman Films is Clelia Mountford and David Cross is an executive producer.
