IFC has given a fourth season to “Maron,” writer-comedian and podcaster extraordinaire Marc Maron’s semi-autobiographical series.

“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.

  1. Season 3 was a drag. I really had to commit myself to watching it. Hopefully season 4 brings back the magic that season 1 definitely had and season 2 had, but I still think season 1 was easily the best.

  2. MJ says:

    I thought season 3 rocked, I actually thought of it as the best so far. It is extremely entertaining and look forward to season 4

  3. NetworkComedyIsDead says:

    I dig this show. keeps on getting better and better. Thought season 3 was the best.

  4. Anonymous says:

    “Comic mayhem?” How long can ifc keep airing this unwatched drivel. I miss indie flicks.

  5. Marty Gillis says:

    I’ve enjoyed this show from the very beginning and have seen every episode. That said, Season Three was pretty dire and 100% due to what I feel was uninspired writing. Marc did the best with what he had, but hopefully Season 4 will take us back to the first two years of the show in terms of quality. (the relapse arc is pretty good though) Maybe I should go out and buy a new tube amp?
