Congrats to Marc Maron!
IFC announced today it has renewed his sitcom, Maron, for a third season, with 13 new half-hour episodes going into production this fall and airing in spring 2015.
“Usually Marc has a hard time maintaining long-term relationships, but luckily not with us,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “He’s committed to bringing his wry humor and refreshing perspective back to IFC for a third season.”
“I am very proud of both seasons of the show and thrilled we’re doing another one,” Maron said. “Through all the episodes I can see the growth and evolution of the character, writing and comedy. I’m excited about getting back into the process. The character of Maron needs some work on and off screen and fortunately that’s what drives the show.”
Here’s how he described the end of season two of his show this summer:
The show is produced for IFC by Fox Television Studios, with Apostle’s Denis Leary and Jim Serpico, plus Michael Jamin, Sivert Glarum, Tom Sellitti and Olivia Wingate executive producing. Maron himself created, produces and also writes the series, and even directed an episode in the second season.
In addition to recurring appearances by Judd Hirsch, Sally Kellerman, Andy Kindler, Josh Brener and Dave Anthony, guest stars over the past two seasons include Wyatt Cenac, David Cross, Johnny Knoxville, Conan O’Brien, Ray Romano, Sarah Silverman, Jeff Garlin, Gina Gershon, Bobcat Goldthwait, Leary, Aubrey Plaza, Eric Stoltz and many more.
