Good news to all the fans of the comedy series Dave. It’s going to stay a little longer in FXX as it has just been renewed.
According to reports, FXX just gave the green light for Dave season 2. This followed after the semi-autobiographical show gained massive popularity.
It first aired on March 4 and ended with 10 episodes on April 29. Since its season finale, fans who greatly enjoyed the series have been asking if there’s going to be a continuation.
Fortunately for them, FXX heard their requests and now it’s going to bring more laughs to its viewers.
TV series usually gets renewed whenever its ratings turn in a successful result. It so happens that the comedy has been a breakout.
The show became the most-watched comedy series in the FX Networks that it even beat comedy series Atlanta from the top spot.
It garnered an average episode audience of 5.32 million total viewers across streaming, VOD, and linear. Atlanta, which was the previous FX record holder, averaged 5.2 million total viewers on all platforms in its first season.
Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Entertainment, said: “That is an extraordinary achievement for ‘Dave,’ the cast and crew as they teamed to make a memorable and brilliant season of television.”
Hard work pays off
Like any other TV shows, Dave aired on cable without knowing how it will be received by its viewers. But considering the big digital viewership, the comedy show’s hard work paid off.
Even American stand-up comedian Kevin Hart took notice of the series’ success in its first season.
“I swear hard work will always pay off…. @lildickytweets you had a vision with daveonfxx and believed in it and put the work in,” Hart wrote on his social media account.
For those who don’t know yet, the series is based on the life of rapper and comedian Dave Burd with stage name Lil Dicky.
It follows the journey of a neurotic man in his late twenties who has convinced himself that he is meant to be a rapper. And not just a rapper but one of the best rappers of all time.
He then taps his best friends whom he also tried to convince so that they could help him convince the world as well.
It stars Burd as the titular character. Other cast members include Taylor Misiak, Andrew Santino, GaTa, Travis Bennet and Christine Ko. It has already featured in season 1 big names like Justin Beiber and Kourtney Kardashian.
Dave season 2 is set to premiere in 2021.
