David Cross’s “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” will return to IFC in 2015 for a six-episode third season following a three-year hiatus.

The series is created, written by and stars Cross (pictured) as Todd Margaret, a man lacking good judgement who manages to find his way into a senior sales position, instigates a biohazard emergency, gets swindled out of stock by Turkish terrorists, gets arrested for breaking into Parliment, and at the end of the second season, inadvertently blows up the world.

“As thrilled as I am to not have to answer the question, ‘Hey man, will there be a third series of ‘Todd Margaret’ or what?’ anymore, the true thrill comes in figuring out how to extend a serialized episodic in which the world blows up at the end of series two. How do you do that for six episodes?!,” exclaimed Cross.

“Perhaps it was a poor decision for Todd to end the world, but working with David to bring this series back is a great decision for the fans,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC.  “We look forward to welcoming Todd Margaret and whoever else survived the apocalyptic blast back to IFC in 2015.”

The series joins IFC’s 2015 slate of originals, including “Portlandia,” “Maron” and ‘Comedy Bang! Bang!” as well as the next installment of “The Spoils of Babylon,” “The Spoils Before Dying.”

“The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” is produced by Merman Films and is written by Cross, Shaun Pye and Mark Chappell. Cross exec produces with Merman Films’ Clelia Mountford.
