Fox Renews ‘Bless The Harts’ for Season 2

Animated Entry is the First Official Freshman Series Renewal

Fox has greenlit animated comedy “Bless the Harts” for season two with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. From creator and executive producer Emily Spivey, and executive producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, “Bless the Harts” features the voices of Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, Ike Barinholtz and Kumail Nanjiani.

In the series, Jenny Hart (Kristen Wiig, “Bridesmaids,” “Saturday Night Live”) is a single mother supporting her family working as a waitress in the small town of Greenpoint, NC.  While Jenny’s the head of her family, she’s often at odds with, or scheming with, her lottery scratcher-obsessed mother, Betty (Maya Rudolph, “The Good Place,” “Bridesmaids”), and her witty, creative daughter, Violet (Jillian Bell, “Workaholics,” “Fist Fight”). Jenny’s doting, eternal optimist boyfriend of 10 years, Wayne Edwards (Ike Barinholtz, “Neighbors”), is the love of her life and a surrogate father to Violet. He’s a charming dreamer who may never hit the big time, but he’s not going to give up the fight. Jenny’s even got a bit of divine power in her corner, as Jesus (Kumail Nanjiani, “The Big Sick”) regularly appears to her while she waits tables at neighborhood restaurant The Last Supper. In the end, the Harts may not have much, but they may just have everything they need.

“Bless The Harts” is a co-production of FOX Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television.
