‘Wilfred’ Gets 3rd Season From FX

The Elijah Wood-starring comedy "Wilfred" will also receive two new showrunners

"Wilfred" will bark once more.


FX has given the series, which stars Elijah Wood as a struggling young man who befriends his neighbor's curiously human-like dog, a third season, the cable network said Wednesday.

The 13-episode third season will debut in June 2013.

In addition to the third-season order, writers/producers Reed Agnew and Eli Jorné have been promoted to executive producers and showrunners for the show. David Zuckerman, who adapted the series for American television from the Australian show of the same name and served as executive producer/showrunner for the first two seasons, will remain as executive producer.

"Wilfred' averaged 2.63 million total viewers for its second season, with 1.71 million of them in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic.
