HBO renews 'The Ricky Gervais Show'

HBO’s low-fi animated series The Ricky Gervais Show is getting a third season.

The series hasn’t been much of a ratings draw for the network, but Gervais is a good brand fit for HBO and the show – which animates the popular podcast hosted by Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington – is not expensive to produce. The show is currently airing on Friday nights.
