FOX Renews 'Grimsburg' for Season 2

Ahead of its series debut in 2023, FOX has today given an early renewal to its upcoming original animated comedy series Grimsburg starring Emmy Award winner Jon Hamm (Mad Men) for a second season.

The comedy centers on Marvin Flute (Hamm), who may be the greatest detective ever to catch a cannibal clown and correctly identify a mid-century modern armoire. But there's one mystery he still can't crack - himself. To do that he must return to Grimsburg, a town where everyone has a secret or three, and redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow detectives, his ferocious ex-wife and his lovably unstable son.

Catlan McClelland and Matthew Schlissel created the series, with Chadd Gindin serving as showrunner. They executive produce with Hamm, Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady and Connie Tavel. Fox Entertainment, The Jackal Group and Bento Box Entertainment produce.

"Grimsburg is yet another clear example of our strong commitment to, and intense focus on, upholding the high bar of standards any show must exceed in order to reside under the Animation Domination banner," said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, Fox Entertainment. "Of course, having Jon Hamm's talent and star power front and center is a great place to start. Equally important, everything we're seeing with Grimsburg - from the very first scripts and show bible to animatics and preliminary cuts - makes us believe we have a winner on our hands that beautifully complements our animation brand."
