Showtime's comedy Episodes is really living up to its name: The meta sitcom is piling up the episode count as it heads into Season 3 with an early renewal for Season 4. That's right, Showtime has ordered a fourth season of the Matt LeBlanc program ahead of the Season 3 premiere, a sign that Showtime president David Nevins really likes the series or is a really, really, really big Joey Tribbiani fan.
Season 4 will consist of nine episodes and likely air in 2015 if its typical broadcast schedule holds up. Season 3 debuts on Sunday, January 12 at 10:30pm on Showtime. I'm no marketing whiz, but if I were Showtime, I might've held this announcement until January 10 or January 11. Send me a check for $500 if you want more of my clever business strategies, Showtime!
Episodes stars Matt LeBlanc as Matt LeBlanc, the star of an American sitcom that was adapted from a British series. The creators of the original, Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig), get a taste of the Hollywood hit machine as their series is butchered beyond recognition and important plot points are replaced with *gasp* ice hockey! Of important note: Tracy Spiradakos (Revolution) will guest-star in Season 3!
