Written by and centered on the family of famous comedian, Bill Burr, F is for Family showcases Burr’s family while he was a boy with adult humor we can appreciate.

His wife and children go about their day trying to calm the storm within him, for the most part, dealing with individual problems of their own. At the end of the day, they love each other despite obscene words and stick together as they face bullies, co-workers, and societal conformities that they don’t quite shape into.

There are sadly only six episodes for the first season but fans are stoked to hear that approval for season 2 is official with a very special tweet confirmation from Bill Burr himself!
