After a successful first season, Dave is returning for at least one more outing as FXX has renewed the freshman comedy series for a second season.
“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,” said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Entertainment. “That is an extraordinary achievement for Dave, the cast and crew, as they teamed to make a memorable and brilliant season of television.”
Per FX’s data, the first season of Dave has averaged 5.3 million viewers per episode across all platforms. Those numbers top the previous FX record holder Donald Glover’s Atlanta, which averaged 5.2 million viewers in its first season.
The show is loosely based on the life of rapper and comedian Dave Burd, better known as Lil Dicky. Burd stars as a neurotic man in his late twenties who has convinced himself that he’s destined to be one of the best rappers of all time.
Season 2 of the show will reportedly debut in 2021, while you can currently find the 10-episode first season of Dave now available on Hulu.
