It's the Shiva to end all Shivas! FXX has renewed the hysterical comedy The League for a seventh and final season to air in 2015, the network announced Monday.
"Our gang can burn a beach house like Calvin Johnson on a secondary but I shudder to think what they'll do in the final battle for the Shiva," said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX and FXX Productions.
Starring comedians and actors Steve Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Jon Lajoie, Mark Duplass, and Katie Aselton, The League follows the hilarious and vulgar antics of a close group of friends as they compete for the Shiva—the trophy bestowed upon the winner of their fantasy football league (and named for a former high school classmate, played by Janina Gavankar).
The league members care deeply about each other, which is why they use every sick and disgusting opportunity to make each other's lives as miserable as possible (especially Andre. Poor Andre).
"We are incredibly excited to work with our amazing cast for another season, especially because I can now announce that I finally won the fantasy football league that we play in with them," said series co-creator Jeff Schaffer in a statement.
"Whatever, I've won it twice," said his wife and fellow co-creator Jackie Schaffer. "Most players in the NFL don't make it seven seasons, and most TV shows even less so. We want to thank FX Networks and all our Eskimo Brothers and Sisters—NFL teams would be lucky to have fans as diehard as ours."
Here's hoping Mr. McGibblets returns one more time in the final season. What would you like to see in Season 7?
