IFC Orders New Season of ‘Todd Margaret’

IFC has ordered a third season of its comedy series The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret, the network said Tuesday.

The series, which stars David Cross (pictured), has been in hiatus for three years, but will return in 2015 with six half-hour episodes, said network officials. The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is produced for IFC by Merman Films in the UK and is written by Cross, Shaun Pye (Extras) and Mark Chappell (A Young Doctor's Notebook).

“Perhaps it was a poor decision for Todd to end the world, but working with David to bring this series back is a great decision for the fans,” said Jennifer Caserta, IFC’s president in a statement.  “We look forward to welcoming Todd Margaret and whoever else survived the apocalyptic blast back to IFC in 2015.”

Season two of the series, which debuted January 2012, averaged nearly 1.6 million viewers (Live +7), according to Nielsen.
