Season 3 hasn’t even premiered yet, but Showtime has already ordered a fourth season of Matt LeBlanc’s “Episodes.”

The comedy stars the former “Friends” actor playing a fictionalized version of himself, as “Matt” continues his career in “Pucks” – a show, within the show.

British funnyman Stephen Mangan plays Sean and Tamsin Greig plays Beverly, a troubled couple who created and write “Pucks.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Sam Palladio of “Nashville” will also return to the series briefly as Stoke.

“Stoke is still very fresh faced and clean shaven, even though he’s actually 33 on the show,” Sam previously told Access of the look he’ll sport when he returns to “Episodes.”

“I was just really lucky to go back and do some really nice cameo stuff, so it’s all very funny,” he added.
