Has ‘Brockmire’ been renewed? Everything to know about S4
IFC’s Brockmire swings for the fences in its fourth and final season premiering in March 2020. The Hank Azaria-led series welcomes back all-stars Amanda Peet, Tyrel Jackson Williams, and Katie Finneran. Additionally, Reina Hardesty (The Flash) has joined the cast for the final eight episodes.
“It’s hard to believe that Jim Brockmire first entered our lives a decade ago in what is now regarded as one of Funny Or Die’s all-time classic videos,” said Mike Farah, CEO of Funny Or Die and Executive Producer of Brockmire. “It’s been an amazing journey and honor watching Hank bring so much comedy, empathy, and emotion to the character, and we are excited for fans of the show to see the final and most ambitious season of Brockmire. I want to thank the entire Brockmire team, and especially IFC, for always championing our show.”
Brockmire follows Jim Brockmire (Azaria), a major league baseball announcer who goes a little buck wild and suffers a public breakdown after learning of his wife’s (Finneran) infidelity — a breakdown so severe that “Brutal Brockmire” became a viral internet meme.
Season 1 begins a decade later, as Brockmire attempts to reclaim his career and reputation by calling games for the Morristown Frackers, an underdog minor league baseball team. Despite finding happiness in Morristown alongside his girlfriend/team owner Jules (Peet), Season 2 begins with a newly-single Brockmire calling games in New Orleans and living with his co-dependent friend Charles (Williams) — while fully indulging in the city’s boozy lifestyle.
When a drug-fueled night of partying with a stranger ends with a near-death experience however, Brockmire realizes it’s time to get sober once and for all. Season 3 takes place one year after a stint in rehab, with Brockmire doing play-by-play in the radio booth for the major leagues in central Florida while maintaining his brazen and narcissistic tendencies.
Brockmire originally appeared as a viral short video on the award-winning comedy website Funny Or Die. The series is written and developed by Joel Church-Cooper. This season Azaria, Church-Cooper, and Funny Or Die’s Farah and Joe Farrell are executive producers. Mo Marable is also an executive producer and series director.
Brockmire Seasons 1-3 are currently available to watch on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and XBOX. Season 1 and 2 are also available on Hulu, with Season 3 joining Wednesday, January 1, 2020.
