"We are thrilled to do more shows with a cast that makes us laugh hard every day, on a network that actually lets us put those jokes on air," said the Schaffers.  "In the words of Taco: The League on FX on Thursday nights is a law, like water or dinosaurs."

Production on the 13-episode fourth season will begin in the summer for a fall 2012 premiere.
