This latest TV news is nothing to be disgruntled about.
IFC has renewed its sitcom Maron for a second season, according to the Huffington Post.
The sitcom features grumpy stand-up comic Marc Maron playing a fictionalized version of himself as he interviews celebrities for his podcast. Sitcom veteran Judd Hirsch plays Marc's father.
"In many ways, Marc is a perfect representation of IFC and our approach to comedy," says IFC's president. "He also seems to be in need of a less dysfunctional family, so we’re happy he’s returning to ours for an expanded second season."
The show's first season consisted of ten episodes and finished its run last month. The 13-episode second season will air sometime next year.
Marc is a longtime stand-up who is known for his real-life podcast,WTF with Marc Maron. The frequently unlucky-in-love — and twice-divorced — comic got engaged to his girlfriend in June.
We're glad that Marc is having so much success in his life — but we don't want him to be too happy, or else he'll lose all his material.
