Very quietly throughout this time in lockdown, Loren Bouchard has been building his animated comedy empire. Bob’s Burgers place in the pantheon of beloved adult animated series is more than secure while currently airing its 11th season. The Great North, which he EPs and is co-created by the Molyneux Sisters (with whom Bouchard has dutifully had among his top ranks at Bob’s Burgers) is getting its footing quite nicely as another feel good, yet delightfully and wonderfully strange family comedy.
Now, Central Park, which Bouchard co-created with Josh Gad and Nora Smith, is just about to premiere its second season on Apple’s exclusive streaming service, Apple TV Plus and, officially as of today, has been tapped for a third season. As Loren calculated in a tweet, that renewal equals almost 30 new episodes of the sensational community focused, edu-taining, meta, musical comedy and well over a 100 new songs.
Do yourself a favor if you need a pick me up (even if you’re not a “musicals” person) and give Central Park a shot in your quarantine binge watch queue.
You’ll be able to get into the second season of Central Park and sing along with dozens of songs starting Fri. Jun. 25th.
Seasons 2 and 3 of Central Park mean 29 more episodes, and something like 115 new songs. 115! The people who make this show dazzle me with their talent and ambition and will. Apple and 20th have shown their will too. I’m honored to be a part of something with this much chutzpah.
