The comedy, written and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, follows a couple, Sharon and Rob Norris, who get together when she becomes pregnant after a brief affair while he’s in the UK on business. In Season 2, the now married duo struggle to stay in love–and lust–while taking their trademark mayhem into parenthood.
A third season of the hit show will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime in 2017, with Season 4 scheduled to be released in 2018. Production for the third season is expected to begin in November.
“Few series have proven themselves as personal and compelling while deftly balancing comedy and drama,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Half Hour TV for Amazon Studios. “Like an ever-growing family, two more seasons of ‘Catastrophe’ will give our customers more love, laughter, and occasional insults yelled very loudly.”
“It used to be when you heard the word ‘catastrophe’ you thought of something terrible or destructive. Most people still do, but now some people might also think of our show,” added Delaney and Horgan. “So that has to be a positive. We’re very excited to have the opportunity to wreak more terrible destruction on the lives of Sharon and Rob.”
The entire first two seasons of “Catastrophe” are currently available on Amazon.
