Despite the show not yet making its public debut, Dan Harmon‘s upcoming animated series, Krapopolis was greenlit to receive a third season. The decision was made by Fox studios, as this decision also shifts the show’s release date to the middle of the year.
According to Deadline, Fox is currently in the UK for the London screenings of the show, in hopes to find some international buyers to air the show. It also reported that Krapopolis‘ public debut has been shifted, turning it into a “four-episode, two-hour block” and will air sometime around mid-2023.
While there are concerns about Fox’s decision to renew the show without public reception, Fox’s President of Scripted Programming, Michael Thorn has faith that Krapopolis will be successful and believes that audiences will find the show’s comedy appealing.
“The 2023-24 season is the perfect launching pad for this highly anticipated and very funny animated comedy, complete with multiple seasons of epic laughs for fans. The more we see from production, the more excited we are about their creativity, story arcs, flawless execution, brilliant voice cast, and ability to pump out episode after episode of astonishing events and outrageous, unexpected hilarity.”
