Hope springs eternal on Opening Day. The grass is freshly cut, the vendors are hawking peanuts and crackerjacks, and Jim Brockmire’s liver has yet to make a trip to the disabled list. Old Brockmire will have to keep it together for a few more seasons: IFC renewed the baseball comedy for two additional seasons. Ahead of the Brockmire season 2 premiere, IFC confirmed a greenlight for Brockmire season 3 and 4.
In season two, baseball broadcaster Jim Brockmire (Hana Azaria) moves to New Orleans with his new best friend, Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams), and hopes to continue his quest to return to the big leagues after a pitstop in the minor leagues. Thanks to Charles, Brockmire now has one of the highest-rated podcasts in the country, but he’s got competition for the Atlanta’s major league broadcast job and some unfinished business to take care of with Jules (Amanda Peet) back in Morristown.
In season three, after a major life shakeup, Brockmire charts a path to redemption in what might be his final shot to hang around the big leagues.
AMC’s official release reads:
Season three takes place three months after his stint in rehab, with Brockmire doing play-by-play in the radio booth for the major leagues in central Florida during spring training while maintaining his brazen and narcissistic tendencies, despite actually being on the wagon. When an opportunity arises for Jim and his new co-host Gabby (Tawny Newsome) to take over as lead broadcasters in Oakland, he must fight to change his ever-present amorality.
