Fox’s Sunday night lineup is primarily dominated by Seth MacFarlane cartoons these days, but the network’s other animated series continue to flourish. For instance: Bob’s Burgers. In May, Fox announced that the series, created by Lauren Bouchard (Home Movies, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist) and starring H. Jon Benjamin (of Bouchard’s other series as well as FX’s Archer) would be picked up for a second season. Now, that second season has been expanded by nine additional episodes, bringing the count to 22. However, it is uncertain when this second season will air.
The debut of Bob’s Burgers‘ second season is contingent upon the success or failure of Fox’s other new animated projects, Allen Gregory and Napoleon Dynamite. Season 2 of Bob’s Burgers might not find its way on air until the 2012-2013 television season.
The series focuses on a hapless American family who own and operate a hanging-by-a-thread hamburger restaurant. Benjamin plays Bob Belcher, the varyingly levelheaded patriarch who tries tirelessly to make his business a success while taking care of his three bizarre children.
