Showtime Renews 'Episodes' for Season 3
Showtime has renewed Episodes for a third season.
Starring Matt LeBlanc, the co-production between Showtime and the BBC will begin production on the nine-episode new season in Los Angeles and London next year.
Episodes centers on LeBlanc, who won a Golden Globe earlier this year, as a heightened version of himself. Stephen Mangan, Tamsin Greig, Kathleen Rose Perkins, John Pankow and Mircea Monroe co-star in the series.
The second season drew 1.66 million viewers across all platforms, with Episodes skewing toward a male audience.
Episodes, nominated for three Emmys in its first season, is created by executive producers David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik. Jimmy Mulville also serves as executive producer.
