Fox will be flipping more of “Bob’s Burgers,” with the network announcing on Thursday that it has renewed the Emmy-winning animated series for a sixth season consisting of 22 episodes.
The show, which airs behind “Family Guy,” has averaged a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.5 million viewers overall for its eight episodes this season. It has held its own despite going up against both “Sunday Night Football” and “The Walking Dead” in the fall.
In August, “Bob’s Burgers” won its first Emmy Award for outstanding animated program. The series also was recently nominated for a 2014 Annie Award in the category of best general audience animated television/broadcast production, and it received two 2014 Writers Guild Award nominations in the animation category.
A 20th Century Fox Television production, “Bob’s Burgers” was created by Loren Bouchard (“Home Movies”). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive (“King of the Hill”) serve as executive producers and writers, with animation produced by Bento Box Entertainment.
