Fans of the original Netflix animated series F is for Family can rejoice in the fact that the show has been picked up again for production on season 3. Co-created by stand up comedian Bill Burr and television veteran Michael Price, the show has thus far explored the contentious dynamics established within a tight-knit nuclear unit living in a Great Lakes region town in 1973.
Based in part on Burr's real life experiences growing up in Canton, Massachusetts throughout the 1970s, F is for Family has done well enough on Netflix following the release of two seasons thus far. Featuring voice over performances from Burr as the short-tempered patriarch Francis X. "Frank" Murphy, Laura Dern as the put upon wife and mother Sue Murphy, Justin Long as the cantankerous elder son Kevin Murphy, Debi Derryberry as the precocious daughter Maureen Murphy, and Haley Reinhart as the younger son Bill Murphy, the series is a generally well-rounded exercise in caricature-based satire.

Season 2 of F is for Family premiered online this past May, and has generally improved upon its basic formula to smarter and dirtier ends. Burr has quickly made his way to the top of the pile when it comes to premiere stand up comedians with a nationwide public presence, and as such his generally crowd pleasing persona should serve to provide for more dramatic fodder in the making of season 3 of his original animated comedy series on Netflix.
By and large, Netflix has managed to consistently deliver a wide range of original content as a major film studio in its own right, and with any luck F is for Family will manage to generate an even larger crowd with the release of season 3. Burr has truly created something unique with his first foray into the world of animated comedy, so here's to hoping that everything continues to develop in a positive direction on his Netflix original series going forward.
F is for Family season 3 will return to Netflix.
