Showtime has renewed Episodes for a fourth season, the network announced on Wednesday. Season 3, which premieres on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 10:30/9:30c, follows Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig) after their reconciliation, while the star of their show, a fictionalized version of Matt LeBlanc played by LeBlanc, continues to struggle with his plummeting career.

It's difficult to believe that the creators of Showtime's Episodes are not holding a grudge against network TV. Their last series, the CBS sitcom The Class, was axed after one short season, and their follow-up comedy (for cable, natch) is nothing if not an indictment of how the worst broadcast shows get made, sometimes in spite of a great idea. Just take a gander at Episodes' fictional network honcho, a crass and careless tyrant who transforms an urbane British hit about the headmaster of an elite boys school into a broad comedy for American audiences starring Matt LeBlanc.
