IFC's 'Brockmire' to End After 4 Seasons

IFC has announced today that the upcoming fourth season of the original comedy series Brockmire will be its last. The comedy will launch its final 8-episode season in March 2020.

The comedy stars Hank Azaria, with Amanda Peet, Tyrel Jackson Williams, Katie Finneran and Reina Hardesty joining him in the final season.

Joel Church-Cooper created the comedy. He executive produces with Azaria and Mike Farah. Funny or Die produces.

"I really loved this season in several very right and a few very wrong ways. I hope you will too," said Azaria.

"Making this show has been one of the top seven joys of my life," added Azaria in character as Jim Brockmire. "Others include: that time by the swings with this guy Phil; my visit to the belt factory; my childhood days on the carrott farm; every time I finish a pancake challenge; that moment when you pass a porta potty and it really stinks then finally you get far enough away from it where you don't smell it anymore and just normal air seems like sweet, sweet perfume to you."

"From the beginning, Brockmire was conceived as a four-season story, and we are so proud to see it written and produced to its creative conclusion," said Blake Callaway, Executive Director, IFC. "Blazers off to the amazing crew, our fantastic partners at Funny or Die, and the incredible cast, especially the incomparable Hank Azaria, who lives, sleeps and breaths Jim Brockmire, as well as Amanda Peet who makes an indelible contribution to the show as Jules, and Tyrel Jackson Williams who completely shines as Charles. Fans and critics alike will love watching how the story ends."
