Bob's Burgers Gets Nine More Episodes For Season 2
As good as it was to know that Fox renewed Bob’s Burgers for a second season after the series premiered last January, it was disappointing to know that we’d have to wait until Midseason 2012 to see what happened next for the Belcher family and their fine eating establishment. While that hasn’t changed, it does look like we’re getting even more Bob’s Burgers what was originally planned.
Bob’s Burgers follows the Belcher family as they run a small and struggling burger joint. A lot of the humor comes from the oddness of the voices (Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal), and the quirkiness of each member of the Belcher clan.
Fox announced yesterday that they were tacking on an additional nine episodes to the thirteen-episode second season, which means we’ll be getting twenty-two episodes of Bob’s Burgers for Season 2.
“Last season, BOB’S BURGERS infused our Sunday lineup with a fresh new voice that was fully embraced by our ANIMATION DOMINATION fans,” said Fox’s Kevin Reilly. “Loren Bouchard, Jim Dauterive and the team have done an amazing job with the show, and we’ve got one of the most talented and hilarious voice casts in the business, so we look forward to seeing what they cook up for the next nine episodes.”
This is excellent news because based on what Fox has said about Season 2, we have some fun things to look forward to, including the Belcher family trying their hand in the food truck industry, synchronized swimming, searching for treasure in an abandoned taffy factory, and something involving a “very needy bankrobber.” Set to guest-voice for Season 2 is Kevin Kline (playing Bob’s landlord Mr. Fischoeder), Sarah and Laura Silverman as the twin sons of Bob’s rival Jimmy Pesto, and Megan Mullally as Tabitha Johnson, a woman who “sings sexy songs about the environment and her anatomy.” I expect the additional nine episodes have been tacked on if only to try to top all of that.
