The network has handed out an early second-season renewal for the animated comedy from creators Gabrielle Allan, Jennifer Crittenden and Clea DuVall. The news comes as the series featuring the voices of DuVall, Lisa Kudrow and Sharon Horgan, returns Aug. 9 for the second half of its first season.
Housebroken originally launched May 31 and ran for seven episodes before Fox put the series on a hiatus after its July 19 episode as the series paused during the Olympics. The series from 20th Television has three more episodes remaining in its first-season run. Animated shows take longer to produce than scripted originals, which is why early renewals are often the case in the genre.
