Fox Orders 2 More Seasons of Bob's Burgers; Little House Reunion on Hallmark's Home & Family

Bobs' Burgers

Fox has renewed Bob's Burgers for a seventh and eighth season of the Emmy Award-winning animated series. The series is currently in its sixth season of airing but the production of episodes is only from the fifth season, so there will be plenty of episodes to come over the next several years. In the next all-new episode of Bob's Burgers, "The Land Ship," airing Sunday, Oct. 11 at 7:30 PM ET/PT, Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) believes the upcoming Land Ship parade will mean increased business, until he finds out that two port-o-potties will be placed right in front the restaurant. Meanwhile, Tina (Dan Mintz) finds out she's boring, so she joins up with Jordan (guest voice Nathan Fielder), who has been vandalizing the school with graffiti. But when Jordan wants to graffiti the Land Ship, Tina must decide between ruining the parade or disappointing her new crush.

Bob's Burgers, the 2014 Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Animated Program, was nominated for two 2015 Emmy Awards, including its fourth nomination for Outstanding Animated Program and its first for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance (John Roberts). The critically acclaimed series will celebrate its 100th episode this season, as well as feature guest voices Jenny Slate, Billy Eichner, Steve Buscemi, Wanda Sykes, Henry Winkler, Tim Meadows, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Zach Galifianakis.
