FX Orders Third Season of Award-Winning Comedy Series BETTER THINGS

BETTER THINGS, the Peabody-winning comedy series co-created by and starring Pamela Adlon, has been renewed for a third season, it was announced today by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. The third season will air on FX in 2018.

"Better Things' success is testament to the creative GENIUS of Pamela Adlon as a writer, director and actor," said Schrier. "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."

Better Things, currently airing its second season, returns to FX tonight, Thursday, October 19 at 10 PM ET/PT with "Eulogy." In the episode, which was written by Louis C.K. and directed by Adlon, Sam demands satisfaction.

Better Things centers on Sam FOX (Pamela 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.

Adlon, who directed all 10 episodes of the second season, serves as writer and Executive Producer alongside Louis C.K. Additional Executive Producers include M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment. BETTER THINGS is produced by C.K.'s production company Pig Newton for FX Productions. BETTER THINGS won a Peabody Award in 2016 for its first season and Adlon was nominated for an Emmy(R) for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
