As FX continues forth with hard-hitting dramas such as Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, Justified and even the upcoming series The Americans, they're still known for some great comedies such as The League, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Archer. Among their comedy slate, the delightful titular talking dog Wilfred has been doing well as a summer series that got off to an odd start with a "preview episode" to kick off the season. Regardless, the moderately successful series still brings the laughs and will keep the pot smoking & dissecting of Ryan's psyche to come in 2013 as the network has revealed there are more comedic adventures to come.
FX has announced today they have renewed Wilfred for a third season, but it may feature a slight turn in overall operations as David Zuckerman has stepped down as showrunner. Zuckerman will still stay on in the form of his executive producing role, but will not be involved in day-to-day operations.
In his place, writers Reed Agnew and Eli Jorné will assume the role of the new showrunners. The two have been with the series since its pilot and already hold the title of producers. With the promotion, they will also be given the title of executive producers.
Season 2 of Wilfred averaged 2.63 million viewers, while Season 3 is expected to premiere in June 2013.
