Here’s everything we know about the F is for Family Season 4 release date, trailer, plot, and more.

Was F Is for Family renewed for Season 4?

Yes! It took a while, but Netflix officially renewed F Is for Family for a fourth season on January 25, announcing the order for 10 more episodes via a report in Deadline.

When was the F Is for Family Season 4 release date?

F Is for Family Season 4 premiered on June 12, 2020. That follows the schedule of each season taking about a year-and-a-half to produce. Season 1 debuted in December 2015, followed by Season 2 in May 2017 and Season 3 in November 2018.

Is there a trailer for F Is for Family Season 4?

The trailer for F Is for Family debuted on May 28, 2020, on Netflix’s official YouTube page.

What’s the plot of F Is for Family Season 4?

Season 4 of F Is for Family focused on Murphy patriarch Frank (Bill Burr) dealing with the arrival of his estranged father “Big Bill” (Jonathan Banks). Frank spent the entirety of the season trying to get on the same page as his dad, and also trying (and failing) to prove he was a better father than his own. The curmudgeonly senior was able to realize the error of his ways in the season finale, only to die right in front of his family.

While the Murphy family lost a member, it gained a new one as Sue (Laura Dern) gave birth to baby #4 in the finale. Elsewhere in the family, Kevin (Justin Long) struck up a relationship with new character Alice Goldman (Jamie Denbo), meek middle child Bill (Haley Reinhart) takes a try at hockey, and princess Maureen (Debi Derryberry) forms an unlikely relationship with unhinged Bridget Fitzsimmons. The show even took an episode to focus on the life of Rosie (Kevin Michael Richardson), the community’s first Black alderman.

Was F Is for Family renewed for Season 5?

Yes! Expect one final rounding of the bend for the Murphys. In October 2020, Netflix renewed the series for a fifth and final season, which is expected to air in 2021. The announcement came with warm words from co-creator, executive producer, and star Bill Burr, co-creator and executive producer Michael Price, and executive producer Vince Vaughn (who had a memorable arc in Season 3).

Season 4 of F Is for Family premiered on June 12, 2020, on Netflix.
