BOB’S BURGERS Season 2 Announced

BOB’S BURGERS (Fox) - Burger Wars Episode 10

Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, has announced that BOB’S BURGERS, an animated series that is part of Fox’s Animation Domination lineup, has been renewed for a second season. The premiere of Bob’s Burgers this year was the highest-rated new series debut on any network so far this season.

Bob’s Burgers follows a third-generation restaurateur as he runs his own burger joint with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, condiments and sides, but only a few thoughts on customer service and business management. Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves. The animated series features the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal.

An all-new episode, titled “Burger War,” will air on Sunday, April 10 (8:30-9:00pm ET/PT). In the episode, Bob’s (H. Jon Benjamin) eccentric landlord, Mr. Fischoeder (guest voice Kevin Kline), pays the family a visit to deliver some bad news. Bob’s rival across the street, Jimmy Pesto (guest voice Jay Johnston) of Jimmy Pesto’s Pizzeria, wants to take over Bob’s lease so that he can expand his gift shop. With little time and not enough money, the Belcher family must cook up some business or luck to save the restaurant.

Bob’s Burgers is a 20th Century Fox Television production. The series was created by Loren Bouchard. Bouchard and Jim Dauterive serve as executive producers and writers.
