The critically-acclaimed, and painfully funny comedy series You’re the Worst has been renewed for a fourth season on FXX,
Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions made the announcement today.
The comedy comes from from writer and executive producer Stephen Falk and will return to FXX in 2017.
“Expertly written, brilliantly acted, You’re the Worst continues to be hilarious and excellent,” said Schrier. “We’re excited to get Stephen and his team working on next season and thank everyone at You’re the Worst for their outstanding work and the opportunity to keep producing great TV together.”
Falk said, “It is a daily thrill to have You’re the Worst in the same network family as Archer, Fargo, American Crime Story, The Americans, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Better Things, Louie, etc., and while I am currently deep in Post on Season 3 and so, so tired, you guys, I am overjoyed."
"That FX mysteriously manages to have a crystalline brand identity with such a wide variety of shows is a testament to the extreme talents of John, Eric, Nick, Chuck, John, Nick, Matt, Nicole, Kevin, Kate, Jonathan, Barbara, Stephanie and everyone else."
"I realize I don’t need to kiss their asses because they've already picked up the next season, but it is heartfelt.”
You’re the Worst is off to a strong start in Season 3 as its premiere delivered the series’ most-watched telecast on FXX.
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.
It's 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 received Critics’ Choice Television Award nominations for Best Comedy Series in 2015 and 2016, as well as a nomination for Aya Cash (Best Actress in a Comedy Series) and Kether Donohue (Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series) in 2016.
An original comedy from writer and executive producer Stephen Falk, You’re the Worst puts a dark twist on the romantic comedy genre.
Narcissistic, brash, and stubborn Jimmy Shive-Overly (Chris Geere) has inadvertently found himself paired up with cynical, people-pleasing, and self-destructive Gretchen Cutler (Aya Cash).
Rounding out the cast is Desmin Borges, who plays Edgar Quintero, Jimmy’s once homeless war veteran roommate who is struggling to manage his PTSD while forging a post-combat life; and Kether Donohue as Lindsay Jillian, Gretchen’s best friend and former partner in crime who’s exploring her identity after her loveless marriage was resurrected by a surprise pregnancy.
