Early Renewal for FOX’s Grimsburg


FOX Entertainment has given an early season two renewal to its animated comedy Grimsburg, starring and executive produced by Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Confess, Fletch).

Wholly owned by FOX Entertainment and produced by FOX’s Bento Box Entertainment, Grimsburg centers on Marvin Flute (Hamm), who may be the greatest detective ever to catch a cannibal clown and correctly identify a mid-century modern armoire. Grimsburg will premiere in 2023.

Grimsburg is yet another clear example of our strong commitment to, and intense focus on, upholding the high bar of standards any show must exceed in order to reside under the Animation Domination banner,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment at FOX Entertainment. “Of course, having Jon Hamm’s talent and star power front and center is a great place to start. Equally important, everything we’re seeing with Grimsburg—from the very first scripts and show bible to animatics and preliminary cuts—makes us believe we have a winner on our hands that beautifully complements our animation brand.”
