If there's one thing the Phams enjoy more than busting stereotypes it's an adventure, but carving out opportunities for quality time together is proving difficult now that Andrew's landed the community development coordinator gig and Camille's scored a weekly segment on national television.

"Run the Burbs" season 3 airs on CBC from Tuesday, January 9 in Canada — and Canadians abroad can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

At least they've still got their roaring sex life. Then again, the presence of Ramesh, Camille's loveable but ever so slightly overbearing father, should put that to bed. 

It turns out that juggling a pair of teenagers, two burgeoning careers and a roll call of roving parents is about as difficult as it sounds, and despite Andrew's best efforts, Phamily time may need to evolve to fit everyone's schedules, rather than the other way around.

Khia's plate is full to bursting with her job at Bubble Bae and fast-approaching graduation, while Leo's adorable mustache is a sign of hairier things ahead. Nothing that a Pham family outing to Cottage Country can't fix!
