“Marc is easily one of the most audacious comedians around today, and his pervasive sense of angst and unease is something we can all relate to and can’t stop watching,” said Jennifer Caserta, IFC’s president. “His take on society, and himself, is completely unfiltered and authentic and manifests into great comedic storytelling. We’re thrilled to renew Maron for a fourth season and look forward to more comic mayhem.”
After falling off the wagon in last season’s finale, Maron struggles to find his sobriety — and a deeper meaning to life — in season 4. Production on 13 half-hour episodes of the new season begins January for a spring debut. Per usual, it will feature a lineup of recurring and guest stars. (Last season included Judd Hirsch as his unstable father and Sally Kellerman as his meddling mother.)
“I got the character of me into a bit of trouble last season. I hope I can get him back on track. The real me is doing fine,” said Maron.
“Maron” hails from Fox 21 Television Studios and Maron is the creator, executive producer and writer. Apostle’s Denis Leary and Jim Serpico are also executive producers, along with Michael Jamin and Sivert Glarum. Tom Sellitti is a co-executive producer.
