WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Fox ordered two more seasons of its popular animated comedy Bob's Burgers, the network announced Wednesday.

The seventh and eighth season of the Emmy Award-winning show will feature the return of producer Loren Bouchard's fictional family, the Belchers, led by its anxious patriarch, Bob, voiced by H. Jon Benjamin. Fox president of entertainment David Madden made the announcement, calling the Belchers "one of America's most beloved TV families."

"Bob's Burgers is hilarious, warm, smart, inventive -- critics love it, and so do fans. Loren, Jim [Dauterive] and the brilliant voice cast continue to surprise us in the best ways," Madden said in a statement.

Bob's Burgers was nominated for two Emmys this year for Outstanding Animated Program and Character Voice-Over Performance. In 2014, the series won the top spot for Outstanding Animated Program.
