Animal Control Season 3 Renewed by Fox Ahead of Season 2 Premiere
Fox Season Premieres for 2024-25 Season
Fox Entertainment has given an early renewal for a third season to its workplace comedy Animal Control, starring Joel McHale, ahead of its Season 2 premiere on March 6th.
Animal Control: A Smashing Hit for Fox
Animal Control has been a hit with viewers since its debut last year. The TV show follows a team of dysfunctional humans working in an animal control center as they find their lives more complicated by each other than by the animals they’re looking after.
The series launched as Fox‘s most-streamed debut in network history and most-streamed comedy episode ever, including 2.6 million views on Hulu.
Joel McHale Loves Working on Animal Control
“The way that it kind of started was me being pretty cantankerous, and that obviously melted. And so now I feel protective of him,” McHale stated.
Guest Stars for Animal Control Season 2
Season 2 of Animal Control will feature guest stars Ken Jeong, Sarah Chalke, and Krystal Smith.
Jeong and McHale previously starred together in the sitcom Community. Chalke is known for her role as Elliot Reid in Scrubs.
Early Renewal for Animal Control
Fox‘s decision to renew Animal Control for a third season before the Season 2 premiere is a sign of confidence in the series.
Fox Entertainment’s President of Scripted Programming Michael Thorn said, “Animal Control is an incredibly irreverent series that expresses everything viewers expect from a Fox comedy. It has an amazing amount of momentum behind it, and we’ve been so impressed by the work Joel, Bob, Rob, Dan, Tad, Jake and the entire cast are delivering for Season 2, we wanted to reward them with the opportunity to deliver even more of this special show to fans next season.”
Animal Control Cast and Crew
Animal Control was created by Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg, and Dan Sterling. Tad Quill serves as the showrunner, with the four executive producing alongside McHale and Jake Fuller.
The series stars Michael Rowland, Vella Lovell, Ravi Patel, and Grace Palmer alongside McHale. Gerry Dee also recurs in the series.
Animal Control‘s Global Success
Animal Control has been sold in several key English-language territories, including the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
The series is distributed by Fox Entertainment Global, which has sold it to Channel 4 in the UK, Foxtel’s FOX8 in Australia, CBC and CBC Gem in Canada, and TVNZ in New Zealand.
Animal Control is a hilarious and heartwarming comedy that has captured the hearts of viewers worldwide. The series’ early renewal for a third season is a testament to its success and popularity.
Fans can look forward to more laughs and adventures with Frank Shaw and the rest of the Animal Control team when Season 2 premieres on March 6th on Fox.
