Starz has renewed “Survivor’s Remorse” for a fourth season, Variety has learned.
Currently in its third season, the show from executive producer LeBron James is averaging nearly three million viewers per episodes across all platforms — up 20% from its second season, and up 60% from its first season.
“I’m incredibly proud of the team at ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ and what we’ve built. The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a success and the team at Starz for all of their support,” said James.
Along with the NBC star, James exec produces with Mike O’Malley, Tom Werner, Maverick Carter for SpringHill Entertainment, Paul Wachter, Victor Levin and Hilton Smith.
“We are thrilled to renew ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ for a fourth season,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “Critics have consistently called it one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television and we are delighted to see audiences embracing the characters and the storyline with that same enthusiasm. Mike O’Malley and his tremendously talented team of writers and actors boldly tackle today’s most pressing issues, from race, class, sex, and politics, to love and loss, but with such a deft touch that nothing ever feels heavy-handed. In the Calloways, O’Malley has created a modern family bound by heart and humor, who remain completely relatable despite dealing with the ‘pro-money and pro-problems’ that come with Cam’s position as one of the top basketball stars in the nation.”
“Survivor’s Remorse’s” third season, which debuted on July 24, airs on Sunday nights, as part of the pay cabler’s new Sunday night scheduling model. Starz’s other hit series “Power” also airs Sunday nights, and was recently renewed for a whopping fourth and fifth season.
