Exciting news for people who love the adorable Belcher family: Bob’s Burgers has been renewed for a sixth season, Deadline is reporting. Another season of Bob, Linda, Gene, Louise, and Tina’s antics? Sign us the eff up, please!
Following their Emmy win in August for Outstanding Animated Program, Fox has ordered 22 more episodes of the Loren Bouchard-crafted comedy, further solidifying our love of the series and the fact that it is one of the best comedies out there. Thanks almost entirely to the dynamic and lovable weirdos that make up the burger joint family affair (not to mention, Tina Belcher is just the best).
If you’ve never bore witness to the brilliance that is Bob’s Burgers, allow us to implore you to watch. Whether you enjoy family-centric comedies or not, Bob’s Burgers is certain to win you over with its earnest and goofy portrayal of barely-hanging-on life in this eccentric working class world. These aren’t just stock characters or stereotypical animated fare — theirs is an adorably charming and earnest life, with more in common with Parks and Recreation than, say, The Simpsons.
So get ready for more butts! For more H. Jon Benjamin! More John Roberts! More Dan Mintz! More Eugene Mirman! More Kristen Schaal! We don’t know about you, but we’re more than ready for Gene’s inability to do, well, pretty much anything; for Tina’s general sensuality (and her erotic friend fiction); for Bob’s punderful burgers; for Linda’s general Linda-ness, and Louise’s determined energy.
