FX Networks has picked up comedy series Wilfred for a fourth and final season of 10 episodes. The series, an adaptation of Jason Gann and Adam Zwar’s Australian comedy of same name, will move to FXX. The series, in which Elijah Wood stars, as a young man struggling to make his way in the world and Gann plays the neighbor’s irrepressibly brave, crude, and surly dog, averaged just under 1 million viewers in Season 3, and 655,000 Adults 18-49 per week on a first-run basis.
Originally adapted for FX by David Zuckerman (Family Guy, American Dad, King Of The Hill), it’s currently exec produced by Zuckerman along with Gann, Reed Agnew and Eli Jorné, Rich Frank, and Jeff Kwatinetz of Prospect Park, Randall Einhorn, and Joe Connor and Ken Connor of Renegade, producers of the Australian version of the series. Einhorn also serves as director. Around this time last year, when FX Networks was negotiating to bring the show back for a 13-episode Season 3, Zuckerman decided to step back from showrunning, and Agnew and Jorné, who’d been with the series since its start, were named showrunners for the most recent season of the comedy produced by FX Productions.
