The Life & Times of Tim: HBO Orders Season Three of Cancelled TV Show

The Life & Times of TimThis certainly doesn’t happen very often — a network has changed their mind. After cancelling The Life & Times of Tim, HBO has decided to bring it back for season three.

The Life & Times of Tim revolves around Tim (Steve Dildarian), a nice guy who works for a fictional New York City corporation and often finds himself in embarrassing situations. Other voice actors in the series include Mary Jane Otto, Matt Johnson, Nick Kroll, Bob Morrow, and Peter Giles.

Following the HBO cancellation, we spoke to Dildarian about plans to find another outlet for the series. Media Rights Capitol (MRC), the company that produces Tim, was actively looking for another buyer. Prospects included Adult Swim, Comedy Central and TBS.

The animated series has indeed been saved but by the least-likely channel. HBO execs have changed their minds and picked it up for a third season of 10 episodes. No word yet when they’ll begin airing.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that The Life & Times of Tim has been saved?

    I am so super stoked! I wondered if it would be cancelled as it seems few shows are 100% safe these days, and I often find some of the most promising being put into ridiculous time slots — death sentence time.

    I am grateful to HBO for giving it a second chance. Perhaps I will reconsider pitching my show ideas to them after all.

    When I heard it was cancelled I COULD believe it. Some of my favorite shows were cancelled in their prime. Arrested Development is a good example. Kudos to HBO for seeing the error of their ways, but shame on them for giving up on such a great show in the first place.

    Yes of course. The animation sucked, but the stories were very funny. It was totally worth keeping. I wasvery disappointed when I found out it was canceled. But of course just like marriage, theres always one that works. In this case one of the few rare times a show gets canceled but gets brought back. Good news finally.
