FXX is bringing Dave back for another round. The Disney-owned basic cable network on Monday (May 11) announced that it has renewed the half-hour comedy based on the life of/starring rapper and comedian Dave Burd, aka Lil Dicky.
"Co-creators Dave Burd and Jeff Schaffer, along with their entire creative team have delivered one of television’s best comedies series while becoming FX’s most-watched comedy ever. That is an extraordinary achievement for Dave, the cast and crew as they teamed to make a memorable and brilliant season of television,” said FX originals president Nick Grad.
Dave wrapped its 10-episode freshman season April 29 as FX Networks' most-watched comedy series ever with an average audience of 5.32 total viewers, including linear, VOD and streaming. That bested Donald Glover's Emmy- and Peabody-winning comedy Atlanta, which averaged 5.2 million viewers in its first season.
