(Colin Hutton / Showtime / May 25, 2010)
Showtime has ordered a fourth season of the comedy "Episodes," which stars Matt LeBlanc as a fictionalized version of himself.
The new season of the series, which is co-produced by Showtime and the BBC, will include nine episodes and return to production next year.
The third season of "Episodes," which is scheduled to premiere Jan. 12, picks up with Sean (Stephan Manan) and Beverly (Tamsin Grieg), the English couple whose hit British sitcom is remade for U.S. television and corrupted beyond recognition, back together. But their reunion is strained, to say the least.
Meanwhile, Matt (LeBlanc) encounters new difficulities as his career and ego continue to be pummeled.
