'Better Things' Renewed for Third Season at FX
Better Things will be back.
FX has renewed the Pamela Adlon comedy for a third season, which is set to premiere in 2018, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The pickup comes in the midst of the acclaimed series' second season. In addition to creating, writing and starring on the show, Adlon also directed all 10 episodes of season two.
The semi-autobiographical comedy returned in September to rave reviews, including from THR TV critic Tim Goodman, who called season two "wonderfully nuanced" and even wrote that the comedy was "one of TV's most exceptional series." Adlon also received an Emmy nomination for best actress in a comedy series for season one.
Adlon executive produces the series with Louis C.K., M. Blair Breard and Dave Becky. FX produces in association with C.K.'s Pig Newton banner and 3 Arts Entertainment.
Before launching Better Things, Adlon appeared on FX as a recurring guest on C.K.'s Louie. While that series is currently on an indefinite hiatus, C.K. has been busy executive producing other series, including FX's Baskets and Amazon's One Mississippi.
FX's comedy series slate also includes Atlanta, while sister network FXX is home to original comedies such as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, You're the Worst and Archer.
Better Things airs Thursdays on FX.
