Just a couple weeks ahead of the Season 2 finale, AT&T Audience Network has renewed hit comedy series Loudermilk for a third season. The network has ordered 10 episodes of the half-hour comedy. Seasons 1 and 2 also consisted of ten episodes each. Production is scheduled this spring in Vancouver with premiere set for later in the year.
Peter Farrelly (Green Book, Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary) and Bobby Mort, the Emmy-winning scribe from The Colbert Report, will return for Season 3 as writer-creators and executive producers. Farrelly, Mort, AT&T Audience Network’s Shane Elrod and Kate Regan and Big Branch Productions’ Bart Peters will also serve as executive producers.
After a relapse in New Orleans and a falling out with his best friend and sponsor, Ben (Will Sasso), Loudermilk (Ron Livingston) is back in Seattle for season 2 trying to piece his world back together. With his “Sober Friends” meeting hijacked, a messy new relationship, and a stumbling start back into writing, Loudermilk is forced to do a little soul searching (which he hates) and decide what he wants from life. While he still has the ability to help those around him, Loudermilk just may find that the person who needs the most work is himself.
“I couldn’t be happier going back to work on the third season of Loudermilk,” said Farrelly. “I’m working with hilarious and talented actors on the most writer-friendly network in town.”
“I can’t wait to dive back into Sam Loudermilk’s world and the dysfunctional family of misfits he’s surrounded himself with,” said Mort. “If Sam wasn’t sober, I’m sure he’d be popping open bottles of champagne to celebrate. I’m looking forward to working with Pete, Big Branch, and AT&T Audience Network on season 3!”
“Whether it’s his blunt attitude or no-nonsense approach to life, fans have fallen for Sam Loudermilk,” said Daniel York, chief content officer and senior executive vice president at AT&T. “We’re looking forward to bringing the show back for another season and can’t wait to see what comedic masterminds Peter and Bobby have in store.”
“With the extraordinary comedic vision of Peter and Bobby, and their collaboration with our incredibly talented cast and our great friends at AT&T Audience, Loudermilk fans are in for an unforgettable 3rd season,” said Bart Peters.
Loudermilk‘s Season 2 finale airs December 19.
