Bob's Burgers creator vows to cast more women in future seasons, as Kristen Schaal urged him to do
“We are very aware of casting men as women,” Loren Bouchard said at Bob's Burgers Comic-Con panel. “Of course we’re aware — we know they’re men.” Bouchard credits Schaal for doing a "great job reprimanding us year after year. We’re not proud of taking jobs from women. That’s not what we want as a slugline for Bob’s: ‘Taking jobs from women since 2010.’”

Loren Bouchard added his name to growing list of Fox talent upset with Fox News' behavior during the immigrant family separation crisis. "I am so grateful to Fox," he tweeted this afternoon. "They make Bob’s Burgers possible. BUT they have their name on a channel that stokes fear and spreads lies. It's the opposite of what we’re trying to do at Bob's. Love. Inclusion. Hope. That’s what we wanna broadcast." Referring to Melania Trump's "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" jacket, he added: "Also we'd choose a different jacket." ALSO: "Fox News is the worst it's ever been right now."

A Bob’s Burgers movie is coming in 2020
20th Century Fox announced today that a film based on the Fox animated series will be released July 17, 2020. Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard says: “We know the movie has to scratch every itch the fans of the show have ever had, but it also has to work for all the good people who’ve never seen the show. We also know it has to fill every inch of the screen with the colors and the sounds and the ever so slightly greasy texture of the world of Bob’s – but most of all it has to take our characters on an epic adventure. In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?!”
