HBO renews 'The Ricky Gervais Show'

HBO’s low-fi animated series The Ricky Gervais Show is getting a third season.

The series hasn’t been much of a ratings draw for the network, but Gervais is a good brand fit for HBO and the show — which animates the popular podcast hosted by Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington — is not expensive to produce. The show is currently airing on Friday nights.

    Hopefully we’ll hear more about the Clive Warren oeuvre.

    • Josh

      That was pretty much all that was said about Clive Warren. However, Karl has pitched a new movie idea – watch out for that.

    Fantastic! So is this officially Ricky’s longest running show?

  • Jeff

    It’s nice to have a network that recognizes talent, unlike the round-headed buffons at the major networks. Hurray!! more Karl Pilkington.

    I love the way this show is animated. Even though I had previously listened to all of the original podcasts, I find myself tuning in again!

    Ricky actually announced this on his blog yesterday. I couldn’t be happier…best comedy on television.

    Great News! I love hearing Karl bust Ricky and Stephen up.
