Well, for fans of the FXX series You’re the Worst, the light is at the end of the tunnel.
The critically-acclaimed comedy series from creator and showrunner Stephen Falk, has been renewed for a fifth and final season, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions.
Falk and FX Networks jointly decided to make the fifth season, which will air on FXX in 2018, the series’ finale.
“Stephen Falk has been an extraordinary creative partner to work with over the past four years, and it is in that spirit that we came to the mutual decision to end You’re the Worst with its fifth season,” said Grad. “Stephen’s singular vision for the series has been its guiding force from the start and our decision, while difficult, will allow the series to end on its own terms and in a way most satisfying to its devoted fans. We want to thank Stephen, the cast and the crew for everything they’ve done to make You’re the Worst one of the best comedies on TV.”
“Making You’re The Worst has been an incredible experience and FX Networks have been dream partners,” said Falk. “I am thankful to have the opportunity to be thoroughly judged whether or not we ‘stick the landing’ — which is a thing people say now that stupid Breaking Bad had to end so damn perfectly.”
You’re the Worst is a modern look at love and happiness told through the eyes of two people who haven’t been very successful with either. You’re the Worst is the story of Gretchen and Jimmy, fear, heartbreak, romance, sex, food, Los Angeles, Sunday Funday, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners.
You’re the Worst stars Chris Geere, Aya Cash, Kether Donohue and Desmin Borges.
