IFC has ordered a third season of Maron. The new season will consist of 13 half-hour episodes of the Marc Maron-created comedy, which is loosely based on the comedian's life and his popular WTF podcast.
In announcing the renewal, IFC President Jennifer Caserta jokingly referred to Maron's honest portrayal of his personal life on his show and podcast. "Usually Marc has a hard time maintaining long-term relationships, but luckily not with us," said Caserta in a statement. "He's committed to bringing his wry humor and refreshing perspective back to IFC for a third season."
Production on the new episodes will begin this fall, with an expected debut on IFC in spring 2015. The series is produced by Fox Television Production.
Maron also serves as executive producer of the show, alongside Apostle's Denis Leary and Jim Serpico and Michael Jamin, Silvert Glarum, Tom Sellitti and Olivia Wingate.
