IFC Renews 'Maron' for Season 4

IFC today announced it has renewed its original comedy series Maron for a fourth season, starring actor, comedian, writer and podcaster Marc Maron as a fictionalized version of himself. Production on 13 new half-hour episodes begins in January for a spring 2016 debut.

"I got the character of me into a bit of trouble of last season. I hope I can get him back on track. The real me is doing fine," said Marc Maron.

"Marc is easily one of the most audacious comedians around today, and his pervasive sense of angst and unease is something we can all relate to and can't stop watching," said Jennifer Caserta, President, IFC. "His take on society, and himself, is completely unfiltered and authentic and manifests into great comedic storytelling. We're thrilled to renew Maron for a fourth season and look forward to more comic mayhem.

After falling off the wagon in last season's finale, in season four Marc struggles to regain his sobriety. Along the way, he attempts to find a deeper meaning to his life.

Marc Maron is the creator, executive producer and writer of Maron. Apostle's Denis Leary and Jim Serpico are also executive producers, along with Michael Jamin and Sivert Glarum. Tom Sellitti is a co-executive producer.
