Tacoma FD Gets Season 3 Renewal At TruTV, Promises More Mustaches
Season 2 of Tacoma FD hasn't ended yet, but TruTV is already signing up for more of the firefighter comedy from the Super Troopers creators.
The mustaches will live on. TruTV has announced a Season 3 renewal for firefighter comedy Tacoma FD. The series, created by Broken Lizard comedy troupe members Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme, follows a group of firefighters in Tacoma, Washington, a place without many fires to fight. But who needs fires when you can watch members of the team join a choir or compete in boxing matches with local cops?
After debuting Season 2 in March, TruTV general manager Bryan Weitz said in a statement that the show's popularity is still increasing. "With Tacoma FD's fanbase continuing to grow, the show is a huge success story for us, and we can't wait to see what kind of Station 24 shenanigans Kevin, Steve, and the incredible cast come up with next," he explained.
According to a press release, viewers will get to watch Lemme and Heffernan get the renewal news themselves, during the August 6 episode of Talkoma FD--the aftershow hosted by the duo. Naturally, their reaction falls right in line with the type of comedy fans have come to expect from the guys behind movies like Super Troopers.
"I'm incredibly excited," Lemme said. "Mostly because I get to watch Kevin begin his arduous, six-month mustache-growing process. He only has 12 hair holes in his upper lip, so it takes some time."
Of course, even during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Heffernan is keeping his mustache game strong. Appearing in a recent short written film from the writer of Minions and The Secret Life of Pets Brian Lynch, Heffernan appeared as the victim of a truly ridiculous prank call. You can check that out below.
New episodes of Tacoma FD air Thursdays at 10 PM ET/PT. The aftershow Talkoma FD follows at 10:30 PM ET/PT. In other TruTV news, it was also announced that even more episodes of Impractical Jokers are on the way, with production restarting soon.
