“Bob’s Burgers,” the 2014 Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Animated Program, returns for a well-done sixth season. The critically acclaimed series was nominated for two 2015 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance (John Roberts).

The series follows Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, but the rest of the clan falls short on service. Despite the greasy counters and lousy location, the Belchers are determined to make every “Grand Re-Re-Re-opening” a success.

In addition to Bob, the increasingly popular Belcher family includes his charming and musical wife, Linda (John Roberts); their eldest and slightly awkward daughter, Tina (Dan Mintz); goofy and whimsical middle child, Gene (Eugene Mirman); and cunning and clever youngest daughter, Louise (Kristen Schaal).

In the upcoming sixth season, during which the series will celebrate its 100th episode, Tina vandalizes her school; the family investigates a haunted house; the kids open a fake law firm; Aunt Gayle’s (guest voice Megan Mullally) mystery boyfriend is introduced; and Bob starts to lose his mustache hair!

Upcoming guest voices include Jenny Slate, Billy Eichner, Steve Buscemi, Wanda Sykes, Henry Winkler, Tim Meadows, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Zach Galifianakis.

“Bob’s Burgers” is a 20th Century Fox Television and Bento Box Entertainment production. The series was created by Loren Bouchard (“Home Movies”). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive (“King of the Hill”) serve as executive producers and writers.
