IFC Renews 'Brockmire' for Seasons 3 and 4

During its upfront presentation today, IFC has renewed its original comedy Brockmire for a third and fourth season. The renewal comes ahead of the comedy's second season return on Wednesday, April 25.

The comedy stars Hank Azaria, Tyrel Jackson Williams and Amanda Peet.

Season 2 returns with Brockmire chasing an opportunity to call games in New Orleans, and leaving Jules behind in the process. He's now a top podcaster with his show "Brock Bottom," living with his co-dependent friend Charles and boozing harder than ever. Still trying to still reclaim his career as a top sportscaster, Brockmire cannot resist the sinful temptations of the Big Easy, while pining for the girl he left behind in Morristown, PA and struggling to find his purpose in life.

Joel Church-Cooper developed the comedy. He executive produces with Azaria, Tim Kirkby, Mo Marable, Mike Farah and Joe Farrell. Funny or Die produces.

"Hank Azaria's extraordinary talent brings the complex and damaged Jim Brockmire to life in a performance that is nothing short of genius," said Jennifer Caserta, President, IFC. "I'm not sure sending Brockmire to New Orleans for Season 2 was a great idea, but assuming he's still alive by the last episode, I am thrilled to announce that both Brockmire and Hank will be around for Seasons 3 and 4."
