Starring Mark Duplass, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Katie Aselton and Jon Lajoie, The League revolves around a group of six friends who participate in a fantasy football league. The current third season has featured numerous guest stars including Seth Rogen, Jeff Goldblum, Sarah Silverman, Ray Liotta, Will Forte and Eliza Dushku.
The show’s audience has grown this season; currently averaging 1.7 million total viewers (up 25%) and 1.5 million in the 18-49 demographic (up 32%).
Nick Grad, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for FX, said “The League continues to be one of our most successful comedy series both creatively and from a ratings standpoint. Jackie and Jeff Schaffer, along with our terrific cast, are doing wonderful work each week to make one of the funniest shows on television and we’re excited to order another season.”
A husband and wife team, the Schaffers created the show and also serve as executive producers and directors.
There are three episodes left in the third season of The League. One will air this Thursday night, December 15th, and the remaining two will be run on Thursday, December 22nd.
What do you think? Are you a fan? Glad to hear The League has been renewed? How long do you think the show should reasonably continue?

The Heardsman…. vinegar strokes…. this show is classic… bravo FX for renewing this great show!
Awesome news one of the best comedies on tv. Two words Bobum Man!!!!!
season 3 needs to be put on Netflix!!!
it’s still playing on FX and it should be done soon. And don’t think it’ll be released until the spring.
It is so freaking funny. I love every single character on the show. I have the first 2 seasons on DVD and I’ve watched them a bunch of times. It should get at least 9 seasons just like It’s always sunny in Philadelpha. And proving yet again the best shows are on these channels, not nbc, fox, abc, cbs. Granted they have some good ones, but the renewed to canceled ratio has a lot more canceled shows on those networks. HELL YES!!!
