IFC renews ‘Maron’ for a second season


IFC has just ordered another season of Marc Maron’s comedy “Maron,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show will return in 2014 with 13 half-hour episodes.

The series is based on the comedian’s life, which involves running a popular podcast out of his garage, dealing with his kooky dad (Judd Hirsch), and dating a much younger woman (Nora Zehetner).

Avid “WTF” listeners who tuned in for season one likely noticed that many of the stars he’s interviewed on the podcast appeared on screen as well, including Mark Duplass, Dave Foley, Gina Gershon, Jeff Garlin, and Ken Jeong. (Although he did refrain from getting “Jewey” with any of them, as he tends to do in real-life.)

“In many ways, Marc is a perfect representation of IFC and our approach to comedy,” said Jennifer Caserta, president and general manager of IFC, in a statement announcing the news Tuesday. “He also seems to be in need of a less dysfunctional family, so we’re happy he’s returning to ours for an expanded second season.”
