Thanks to Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsley Victoria Vaughn, Ted Sarandos and all the INCREDIBLE writers, performers, animators, editors and musicians that made this show happen.

Price issued a personal statement as well, writing, "Working on this show with the great Bill Burr, Vince Vaughn, and our amazing cast, writers, producers and crew has been the greatest joy of my life, and I’m thrilled that we get to do one more season with the Murphys. I’ll be forever grateful to everyone at Netflix, Gaumont and Wild West who let us share this stressed-out, foul-mouthed and loving family with the world." Vaughn added, "It has been so great to see Mike and Bill – two guys I admire and respect – create something like this and build it from the ground-up."
He went on to say, "It has been a lot of fun getting to be a part of it, and I’m looking forward to continuing to support their vision, for the final season.
