AMC has announced that Comic Book Men has been renewed for a fourth season with plans for a new spinoff series starring Robert Bruce and another new show based on Kevin Smith's "Hollywood Babble-On" podcast.

Comic Book Men is a reality-based TV series set at Smith's comic book shop in New Jersey featuring long time friends Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson along with Mike Zapcic and Ming Chen.

Robert Bruce is the series expert on all things pop culture and is frequently featured on Comic Book Men offering advice and knowledge on a range of comic book items and more. His new AMC series is described as seeing Bruce on a cross-country search for collectibles and fan boy items at estate sales, auctions and flea markets.

THR reports that AMC will be filming a pilot for the new Kevin Smith "Hollywood Babble-On" based series with a weekly show hoping to come from it which is said to need a bit of tweaking for TV.

"I always describe it as Entertainment Tonight but filthy," Kevin Smith told THR. "We sit there and make fun of our industry betters. We bring an inside perspective. We're not the biggest winners on the planet, so we can grouse as well. It has a fun dynamic of salty and sweet. It's a night club show, so we're working with the good folks to try and crack the code of how to turn that podcast we record live every week and turn it into a TV show."

Comic Book Men airs Sundays at midnight on AMC.

Cosmic Book News Managing Editor Byron Brewer recently spoke with Walt Flanagan about Comic Book Men as well.
