Better Things Renewed for Third Season

Everything keeps on getting better as FX renewed its critically-acclaimed series for another season. This is the news that will surely delight the fans and hopefully makes their day better as they read this. As one critic said, the show is a “challenging, deeply rewarding, and ultimately miraculous experience.”

The network has renewed Better Things for a third season. The show, co-created by and starring Pamela Adlon, centers on Sam Fox (Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother as well, sometimes heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also – just maybe – squeeze in some private time once in a while.

Better Things’ success is testament to the creative genius of Pamela Adlon as a writer, director and actor,” said Eric Schrier, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, in a statement. “It has been a joy for everyone at FX to support Pamela and see the critics and industry recognize this series as one of the very best shows on TV. Pamela and the enormously talented cast, producers and crew have our deepest appreciation.”

Adlon, who directed all 10 episodes of the second season, serves as writer and executive producer alongside Louis C.K. The show won a Peabody Award in 2016 for its first season and Adlon was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Better Things is currently airing its second season every Thursdays at 10PM ET/PT on FX. The third season is expected to air next year.
