Showtime has just greenlit a third season of Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union.
The comedy began its Australian run on the ABC last week, in place of The Chaser’s War on Everything.
In the half-hour comedy, Ullman portrays a variety of real-life and fictional characters, doing impersonations of celebrities such as Celine Dion, Jodie Foster and J.K. Rowling.
Showtime ordered seven episodes for the new season, to air in the US in 2010.
From next week ABC moves the show to 9:30pm Tuesdays.
