There might by no means be one other romantic-comedy couple fairly like Gretchen and Jimmy, the central duo on the coronary heart of FXX’s You are the Worst. And shortly, there will not even anymore Gretchen and Jimmy for audiences to stay up for, with creator Stephen Falk making an settlement with FX Networks to carry You are the Worst to a detailed. On the intense aspect, that settlement comes with a Season 5 renewal for the acclaimed sequence, so followers are getting another season to see how everybody’s loopy love lives will end up.
Not that anybody may presumably count on Season 5 of You are the Worst to really carry Gretchen, Jimmy, Edgar, Lindsay and others to a spot the place they’re psychologically content material with something. However since creator and showrunner Stephen Falk confirmed the final season’s existence earlier than later digging into the narrative’s subsequent steps, then he can a minimum of carry this usually sordid crew to a snug stop-gap, the place their respective distress does not have to be fairly as distinguished.
In truth, Stephen Falk’s feedback on the matter instantly deal with the privilege of having the ability to finish issues on his phrases.
I’m grateful to have the chance to be completely judged whether or not or not we ‘stick the touchdown’ — which is a factor folks say now that silly Breaking Unhealthy needed to finish so rattling completely.
You are the Worst has garnered a number of important acclaim in its earlier seasons, and the soon-to-end Season four hasn’t seen that status droop in any respect. However though the emotionally darkish comedy’s fanbase is dedicated and vocal, it isn’t precisely the most important fanbase on the market. The viewership for You are the Worst wasn’t so large when it first premiered on FX, and that core viewers bought smaller when it shifted to FXX for Season 2 and past. For instance, the newest episode was watched by 205,00zero folks on the evening, incomes a zero.1 demo ranking for viewers 18-49 years previous. Granted, FXX does not require its comedies to realize mind-boggling success to maintain them on the air, but it surely’s clear that You are the Worst sadly is not getting extra widespread with every passing yr. Its fellow community rom-com Man Looking for Girl was cancelled earlier this year with no closing season order.
However let’s not get too downtrodden right here, since there’s nonetheless extra You are the Worst to come back. The ultimate season renewal announcement was not so coincidentally timed to come back on the identical day as Season four’s double-episode finale, which airs on FXX on Wednesday, November 15, at 10:00 p.m. ET. Season 5 will seemingly debut in 2018.
