FX's The League Will Tackle a Third Season

This ain’t no fantasy — FX has picked up The League for a third season.

The new cycle of 13 episodes will start production in the summer, with an eye on a fall 2011 premiere.

“[We] are fired up to continue our partnership with [series creators] Jackie and Jeff Schaffer and the ensemble cast,” FX programming EVP Nick Grad said in announcing the pick-up. “We love the show, and the reaction the cast received across the country during their recent comedy tour is a sign the show is really building momentum.”

The married Schaffers in turn hailed FX as “the parents we wish we had growing up — every time we say something naughty they reward us.”

Season 2 of The League averaged 1.4 million total viewers a week, with each episode amassing a full 2 million viewers across multiple airings.

    This show is funny. I am glad it will be back. We do have to watch it after our kids are asleep (and we make sure they are) it really is a wild testament to some fantasy football leagues. Can’t wait to see it in the fall.
