‘Man Seeking Woman’ Renewed for Season 3 by FXX

Wacky Jay Baruchel comedy will premiere 10 new episodes early next year

Apparently, FXX found the zany sitcom it was looking for: the basic cable channel has renewed Jay Baruchel‘s “Man Seeking Woman” for a third season.

The series, created and run by Simon Rich, will premiere the 10 new episodes in early 2017.

“‘Man Seeking Woman’ had another great season this year and continues to offer one of the smartest and funniest takes on dating and relationships on TV today,” Nick Grad, co-president of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, said. “We are excited to move forward on a third season of ‘Man Seeking Woman’ with Simon, Jonathan, Andrew, Ian and Lorne, and thank Jay, Eric and Britt for keeping the show so enjoyable.”

The sitcom follows Josh Greenberg (Baruchel) as he soldiers through the life-and-death stakes of dating. The series also stars Eric Andre (“The Eric Andre Show”) as Mike, Josh’s confident and daring best friend; and Britt Lower (“Sisters”) as Liz, Josh’s intimidating older sister.

“Man Seeking Woman” is based on executive producer Rich’s book of short stories, “The Last Girlfriend on Earth.” Jonathan Krisel, Andrew Singer, Ian Maxtone-Graham and Lorne Michaels are also executive producers.

The series hails from Broadway Video and is produced by FX Productions.
