Showtime Renews ‘Episodes’

Matt LeBlanc Starrer Returns For Fourth Season In 2014

Showtime has greenlit a fourth season of its comedy series Episodes before the debut of the series’ third campaign, the network announced Wednesday.

Episodes, which stars Matt LeBlanc as a fictionalized version of himself, will begin shooting its nine-episode fourth season in 2014, said network officials. Season three of the Showtime and BBC co-produced series debuts Jan. 12, said Showtime.    

The announcement comes on the heels of the network’s decision to end veteran dramedy series Californication after its seventh season, which debuts on the network sometime in April.
