Netflix's 'F Is for Family' Renewed for Second Season
Netflix animated comedy F Is for Family will live to swear another day.
The raunchy comedy inspired by the life of stand-up comic Bill Burr has been renewed for a second season.
Burr made the announcement Friday via Twitter with an expletive-laden clip that concluded with the message that the half-hour comedy is "officially returning" for season two. Season two will consist of 10 episodes — up four from its first-year order.

Season one of the six-episode comedy debuted in December and counts Burr, Laura Dern and Justin Long among its voice cast. The comedy hails from Gaumont International Television and marks the latest collaboration for the company with the streaming giant (Hemlock Grove, Narcos).
F Is for Family comes as Netflix has been making a sizable investment in comedy and animation. On the animated side, the streamer has BoJack Horseman, which will also return for a second season. Netflix's live-action comedy roster includes The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which launched its second season Friday, Degrassi: Next Class, The Ranch, Drew Barrymore-Timothy Olyphant entry Santa Clarita Diet, Norman Lear's One Day at a Time reboot, Easy, from mumblecore master Joe Swanberg, and more as the company invests $5 billion in originals this year.
F Is for Family is produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television. Burr and Michael Price (The Simpsons) co-created the 1970s-set series.
