The football season is over but apparently not for FX.

The basic cable network Monday renewed ‘The League’ for a third season. The semi-improvisational comedy about a Chicago fantasy football league stars Mark Duplass, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, Jon Lajoie and Katie Aselton.

No word on which NFL players and analysts may show up on the Season 3 roster. Terry Bradshaw, Antonio Gates, Chad Ochocinco, Terrell Suggs, and Josh Cribbs have made guest appearances in past seasons.


Created by Jeff Schaffer (‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’) and Jackie Marcus Schaffer (‘Disturbia’), the series averages 1.4 million total viewers and has been up 4% in viewers in its second season.

Thirteen episodes have been ordered for the third season.
