Six More 'Bob's Burgers' Comin' up!

FOX loves the taste of 'Bob's Burgers.'

With thirteen episodes remaining to be aired this fall, reports that FOX has ordered six more scripts as a part of the season 3 order, keeping the hit show's writers busy for the foreseeable future. The third season of the animated show was ordered back in January and this additional order shows a lot of confidence in the staying-power of the series, from the FOX execs.

Bob's Burgers title cardThe six additional scripts will bring the order for the third season to a total of nineteen episodes. Having just earned its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Program, it would seem FOX is poising the marketing-machine behind 'Bob's Burgers' in hopes of transitioning its ratings from 'solid' to 'outstanding.'

What is already outstanding is the calibre of voice-talent boasted by the animated series. Bob's eccentric landlord, Mr. Fischoeder, is voiced by Academy Award Winner Kevin Kline ('De-Lovely'), who will be reprising the role in the upcoming season. Along with Kline, Jeffrey Tambor ('Arrested Development') is a 'Burgers' mainstay, lending his recognizable baritone to the series as the chemically-imbalanced and madcap Captain Flarty. A guest-star announced for the upcoming episodes is none other than the red-hot Zach Galifinakis ('The Hangover') who will join the cast as Chet, a man in love with a department store mannequin.

Time will tell if the added investment on behalf of FOX translates to increased investment by the audience.
