Fox has extended its order for animated comedy “Bob’s Burgers” by nine episodes.
The series ran for 13 Sunday episodes spread from January through May earlier this year. It was renewed in April for a second season of 13 episodes, also set for midseason; the new extension ups the order to 22.
After a series premiere that pulled in over 9 million viewers thanks to a boost from the NFL playoffs earlier that evening, “Burgers” settled in for audiences in the 4 million range for most of its first season.
Series creator Loren Bouchard exec produces with Jim Dauterive for 20th Century Fox TV. H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal form the regular voice cast.
