It appears that Fox wants the Tobins to stick around for a little while longer. On the heels of its season one finale, the network has decided to renew animated comedy 'The Great North' for a third season. 'The Great North' follows the adventures of the Tobin clan, a family residing in Lone Moose, a fictional town in Alaska. Nick Offerman, of 'Parks & Recreation' fame, voices titular character Beef Tobin. Jenny Slate, Will Forte, Dulce Sloan, Paul Rust, and Aparna Nancherla make up the rest of the voice cast. 'Great North' has been a modest performer for the Fox network, with its first season averaging a respectable 0.55 A18-49 rating. The series is set to return this fall to air its second season, with this renewal ensuring that it'll be back for another year after that. 

The first season of 'The Great North' premiered on January 3, 2021, with the pilot garnering a solid 0.69 Adults 18-49 rating and 2.3 million in the viewership department. Episode 2 soared to a monstrous 2.13 rating thanks to the assistance of a huge NFL lead-in, with 6.1 million tuning in overall. The series has yet to reach those heights again, with the finale posting a measly 0.3 rating and just 773,000 total viewers. Nonetheless, those poor numbers are not too far behind the other toons on the block and it stays fairly close to its 'Simpsons' lead-in.
