Cable network FX has renewed “Married,” the couple comedy that had its rookie run over the summer. It has also renewed the relationship comedy “You’re The Worst.” Both shows premiered on FX last July 17, 2014. Read on for details to this news story.
According to Deadline, these comedy shows from FX will get more episodes when they return for their second season. “Married” and “You’re The Worst” originally had a 10-episode airing last summer. The shows will now have 13 episodes as part of its renewal. “You’re The Worst” will also move to FXX, the cable network’s sibling channel, when it comes back. The move is to offset its programming, following the cancellation of FXX’s “Legit” last May.
“Married” and “You’re The Worst” both did decently on cable, averaging at least 1.96 million viewers a week for “Married” and 1.65 million viewers a week for “You’re The Worst.” These numbers are already good ratings for cable TV, and the latter show is even doing better in the 18-34 demographic. This is also one of the considerations to moving “You’re The Worst” to FXX, whose audience is composed of younger viewers. FXX’s other shows include “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “The League,” which have a good following from the 18-34 demographic.
“Married” stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as a couple raising a growing family. Along the way, they experience typical struggles that married couples go through, and they have to remind themselves why they are together in the first place. The series also stars Jenny Slate, Brett Gelman and Paul Reiser.
“You’re the Worst” is a different kind of romantic comedy starring Chris Geere and Ava Cash. The latter does not believe in relationships, but the two ended up dating and falling in love. The show also features Kether Donohue and Desmin Borges.
So, there you go, the comedy shows “Married” and “You’re The Worst” will be coming back for a second season on FX and FXX next summer. You have many more months to catch up on the first season, if you haven’t yet watched this.
Married has renewed its vows with FX. Season Two has officially been picked up with an order of 13 all new episodes. #MarriedFX
