The Belcher brood is cooking up something big for 2020.
“Bob’s Burgers,” the Emmy-winning animated Fox series, is getting a feature film in July 2020, 20th Century Fox said Wednesday.
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring ‘Bob’s Burgers’ to the big screen,” show creator Loren Bouchard said in a statement. “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…. In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?!”
The show has steadily gained popularity since it premiered midseason in 2011, thanks to its loveable oddball leads, the Belcher family.
Patriarch Bob runs a struggling hamburger restaurant in a seaside town with help from his wife Linda and their three kids, Tina, Gene and Louise.
The series scooped up its first Emmy win in 2014 for Outstanding Animated Program, an honor it nabbed again this year.
The feature film will add the show to a growing list of animated hits to make the leap to the big screen.
“The Simpsons Movie” premiered in 2007 to both critical acclaim and massive box office success, raking in more than $183 million.

Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob Squarepants” also got the movie treatment in 2004, and earned more than $85 million.
