The 10-episode third season is slated to air in early 2017. The comedy stars Baruchel as Josh Greenberg, a guy who’s just trying to soldier through the life-and-death stakes of dating; Eric Andre as Mike, Josh’s confident and daring best friend; and Britt Lower (“Sisters”) as Liz, Josh’s intimidating older sister.
Simon Rich created the series, based on his book of short stories, “The Last Girlfriend on Earth,” and serves as executive producer and showrunner. Jonathan Krisel, Andrew Singer, Ian Maxtone-Graham and Lorne Michaels, and Broadway Video also serve as executive producers on the comedy, which hails from FX Productions. The show’s recently concluded sophomore season increased 2% in total viewers year over year, per Nielsen’s live plus-7 ratings.
“’Man Seeking Woman’ had another great season this year and continues to offer one of the smartest and funniest takes on dating and relationships on TV today,” Grad said. “We are excited to move forward on a third season of ‘Man Seeking Woman’ with Simon, Jonathan, Andrew, Ian and Lorne, and thank Jay, Eric and Britt for keeping the show so enjoyable.”
FXX recently handed a two-season renewal to enduring comedy hit “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” which will take it through Season 14. The show was previously picked up for Season 12, which will debut in 2017. The cable network also renewed “You’re the Worst” for a third season in December, to air in summer 2016.
