“Perhaps it was a poor decision for Todd to end the world, but working with David to bring this series back is a great decision for the fans.”

Following a three-year hiatus on the status of the 'Todd Margaret' show which stars David Cross, IFC has announced that it will be bringing it back to life for a third season.

The third season will begin with six new half-hour episodes slated to air in 2015. Based in London, the series is created, written by, and stars Cross as Todd Margaret, an American lacking any sense of good judgment. Season 3 will pick up where the second season left off, when Todd detonates a battery of nuclear bombs that incinerate the planet. Writing on the third season has begun and production will start next year.

“As thrilled as I am to not have to answer the question, &lsquoHey man, will there be a third series of Todd Margaret or what?’ anymore, the true thrill comes in figuring out how to extend a serialized episodic in which the world blows up at the end of series two. How do you do that for six episodes?! Well Shaun, Mark, and I are up to the challenge,” said Cross. “I sincerely couldn't ask for a better group of folks to be doing it for than the lovely ladies (and one dude now) at IFC. It is such a pleasure to work for them. They are a rarity in this business.”

“Perhaps it was a poor decision for Todd to end the world, but working with David to bring this series back is a great decision for the fans,” said Jennifer Caserta, IFC president. “We look forward to welcoming Todd Margaret and whoever else survived the apocalyptic blast back to IFC in 2015.”

The first season drew more than 1 million viewers for IFC, while the sophomore run saw a 50-percent jump to 1.6 million viewers, according to live-plus-seven ratings data. The first two seasons of Todd Margaret are currently available on Netflix, as well as DVD.
