‘Better Things’ Renewed for Season 3 at FX

Better Things” has been renewed for a third season at FX, the network announced Thursday.

The series, co-created by and starring Pamela Adlon, centers on Sam Fox (Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate who lives across the street. It is currently airing its second season, with the third season set to air in 2018.

Better Things’ success is testament to the creative genius of Pamela Adlon as a writer, director and actor,” said Eric Schrier, co-president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “It has been a joy for everyone at FX to support Pamela and see the critics and industry recognize this series as one of the very best shows on TV. Pamela and the enormously talented cast, producers and crew have our deepest appreciation.”

Adlon, who directed all 10 episodes of the second season, serves as writer and executive producer alongside Louis C.K. M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment also executive produce. “Better Things” is produced by C.K.’s production company, Pig Newton, for FX Productions. It won a Peabody Award in 2016 for its first season and Adlon was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

The show has drawn strong critical acclaim throughout its run, with Variety‘s Maureen Ryan recently writing, “The first season of this series was excellent, but this year, ‘Better Things’ ascends to another level…With the second season of this unmissable, funny, insightful and deeply humane show, Pamela Adlon takes her place as one of the most important storytellers on the TV scene.”
