IFC Renews Original Comedy Maron For A Third Season

Premieres Spring 2015

NEW YORK, NY – September 16, 2014 – IFC today announced a third season renewal of Marc Maron’s critically acclaimed original comedy series, Maron, produced by Fox Television Studios. Production begins this fall with 13 all-new half-hour episodes. Building on the success of the first two seasons, Maron will return to IFC in spring 2015 with Marc confronting new issues, new guest stars and new ways to self-sabotage.

Called “one of TV’s funniest shows” by The Associated Press, Maron is a fictionalized look at Marc’s life and successful WTF podcast (www.wtfpod.com). Each episode of Maron chronicles the misguided attempts of a man who is trying to grow, but nevertheless finds himself asking, “We good?” The second season showed Marc struggling to sustain a meaningful romantic relationship, the public pitfalls of increased success and the difficulties of navigating the perilous waters of family dynamics.

“Usually Marc has a hard time maintaining long-term relationships, but luckily not with us,” said Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC. “He’s committed to bringing his wry humor and refreshing perspective back to IFC for a third season.”

“I am very proud of both seasons of the show and thrilled we’re doing another one,” said Marc Maron. “Through all the episodes I can see the growth and evolution of the character, writing and comedy. I’m excited about getting back into the process.  The character of Maron needs some work on and off screen and fortunately that’s what drives the show.”

Added Fox Television Studios Senior Vice President, Programming, Nancy Cotton, “We’re thrilled about being in business with Marc and IFC for season three, and gratified to offer even more viewers the opportunity to watch this witty and wickedly honest show.”

In addition to recurring appearances by Judd Hirsch, Sally Kellerman, Andy Kindler, Josh Brener and Dave Anthony, guest stars over the past two seasons include Wyatt Cenac, David Cross, Johnny Knoxville, Conan O’Brien, Ray Romano, Sarah Silverman, Jeff Garlin, Gina Gershon, Bobcat Goldthwait, Denis Leary, Aubrey Plaza, Eric Stoltz and many more.

Marc is the star, creator, executive producer and writer of Maron. He also directed an episode last season. Maron is produced for IFC by Fox Television Studios. Apostle’s Denis Leary and Jim Serpico are also executive producers, along with Michael Jamin, Sivert Glarum, Tom Sellitti and Olivia Wingate.
