'F is For Family' Season 4: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else on the Netflix animated show
Kevin and his dreams of becoming a rockstar are still on, however, it seems like he will finally meet a girl he likes and one who likes him back while Bill channels his newfound aggression into hockey
Family dysfunctionality as a device for comedy is not a new thing. But few do it better than Bill Burr and Michael Price’s animated Netflix sitcom, ‘F is for Family’. And there is good news for fans of both Burr and the show. The show is soon to air its fourth season.
Season 4 of ‘F is For Family’ drops on Netflix June 12.
‘F is For Family’ revolves around the Murphy family, a white middle-class Irish-American household from a suburban area in the midwest. That the family is dysfunctional is an understatement. And because the show is based in the early to mid-‘70s, political correctness is non-existent.
The patriarch, Frank, is an angry man who loudly cusses when things go out of control. He’s insecure, contemptuous, controlling, and angry. His wife Sue struggles with the ennui of being a homemaker. When she decides to venture out and find work and find her entrepreneurial spirit, she suffers one crushing defeat after another, often with little or no encouragement or support from her husband.
The children, thanks to the often-unhappy marriage of their parents, are obviously varying degrees of messed up. The teenager Kevin struggles with school and his dreams of being a famous musician. The prepubescent Bill goes from being a sweet child to being an aggressive truant. And the youngest, Maureen, is often stuck between all of this.
The story doesn’t have a central plot per se -- it focuses on the everyday struggles of the family as they deal with unemployment, changing ideas of women empowerment, growing up, and more.

The trailer for season 4 of ‘F is For Family’ takes off right in the aftermath of season 3, with the arrival of Frank’s 72-year-old estranged father William Murphy, voiced by Jonathan Banks. We see in real-time just how similar the two relationships are -- the one between Kevin and Frank, and the one between Frank and William.
At the same time, we see the family preparing to welcome its newest member, and Frank fearing the possibility of twins. As Frank struggles with Lamaze classes and his father’s arrival, Kevin and his dreams of becoming a rockstar are still on. However, it seems like Kevin will finally meet a girl he likes and one who likes him back for who he is.
We also see Bill channeling his newfound aggression into hockey, and being extremely good at it. Maureen, on the other hand, is left trying to navigate her dreams in this crazy household.
