episodes-cancelled-renewed-showtime-matt-leblancWe are reviewing all the cancelled shows and renewed shows of 2011.

We were asking ourselves a little while ago if Pucks was getting cancelled? We still don´t know about that, but we know for sure that Episodes is renewed by Showtime for a second season. It was announced today by David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc.

Half-hour comedy series Episodes, starring TV icon Matt LeBlanc as a fictional version of himself, received a second season order with the number of episodes to be determined.

This news of Episodes renewal should not surprise anyone, since the show was not only good but also performed well on Showtime.

“To have the opportunity to make another series of this show with David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik and then to make that show for both Showtime and the BBC, whose combined portfolios of comedy are second to none, is both a thrill and a great privilege,” said executive producer Jimmy Mulville.  “At the end of the first series the writers have placed our three protagonists in the middle of comedy hell.  Like the rest of the audience I can’t wait to see what is going to happen to them!”

What do you think? Are you happy that Episodes gets renewed by Showtime for a second season?
