The Carmichael Show - Renewed for a 3rd Season by NBC

Update: Renewed for a 3rd Season by NBC.

The multicam sitcom starring comedian Jerrod Carmichael has been renewed for a 13-episode third season by NBC, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Sources tell THR that 20th initially sought a full 22-episode season three order and held steadfast for 13 while NBC initially balked at both numbers. Network brass eventually agreed following Sunday's press call, during which multiple industry watchers questioned NBC execs why the future of the show would even be a question.

Because of the last-minute renewal, its unclear exactly when the show will return for season three and what timeslot NBC will give it.

Pre Upfront's: In Danger as Time Runs Out at NBC

Critically acclaimed multi-camera sitcom has become something of an oxymoron, with no multi-camera shows winning the best comedy series Emmy in a decade, and only one, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, coming close since.

Then The Carmichael Show, co-created by and starring comedian Jerrod Carmichael, came along last summer. Feeling almost like an off-season burn-off, the sitcom drew eyeballs and strong reviews, earning a second season renewal. But now, the show is in jeopardy of not making it to a third season.

NBC has been in renewal discussions with 20th Century Fox TV — which became the lead studio on the show after its pickup to series, co-producing with Universal TV — but with hours remaining before NBC unveils its 2016-17 schedule Sunday morning, there has been no deal. No one would comment, but I hear that the size of the order may be among the sticking points. (The Carmichael Show‘s first season consisted of 6 episodes, the second of 13.)
