Starz has done it again!
The network announced today that it has ordered a fourth season of the critically-acclaimed comedy series Survivor’s Remorse from executive producers Mike O’Malley, Tom Werner, LeBron James and Maverick Carter.
The series follows the life of Cam Calloway (played by Jessie T. Usher), a hard-working, young basketball star who is thrust into the limelight after signing a huge contract with a pro basketball team in Atlanta.
“I’m incredibly proud of the team at Survivor’s Remorse and what we’ve built,” said LeBron James.
“The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a success and the team at Starz for all of their support.”
“We are thrilled to renew Survivor’s Remorse for a fourth season,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.
“Critics have consistently called it one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television and we are delighted to see audiences embracing the characters and the storyline with that same enthusiasm."
"Mike O’Malley and his tremendously talented team of writers and actors boldly tackle today’s most pressing issues, from race, class, sex, and politics, to love and loss, but with such a deft touch that nothing ever feels heavy-handed."
"In the Calloways, O’Malley has created a modern family bound by heart and humor, who remain completely relatable despite dealing with the ‘pro-money and pro-problems’ that come with Cam’s position as one of the top basketball stars in the nation.”
In Season Three, fame and fortune can’t shield pro-basketballer Cam Calloway against tragedy.
Each member of the Calloway family copes with the fallout of Uncle Julius’ accident in their own way.
Family bonds are tested, as a new season of Survivor’s Remorse explores themes of love and loss, the comforts and doubts found in religion, the danger of seeking out ancestral roots, the power of bad parenting, the pitfalls of public utterances, and the pain of dredging up the past.
The cast also includes RonReaco Lee, Tichina Arnold, Teyonah Parris and Erica Ash.
Some of the other hit series found on Stars are Power, Outlander and Ash vs Evil Dead.
