FXX has decided today to renew its comedy series You’re The Worst for a fifth and final season in 2018. The show, created by Stephen Falk, is a twist on the romantic comedy genre by focusing on a cynical writer and his equally cynical publicist, played by Chris Geere and Aya Cash, as they begin an up-and-down relationship.
“Making You’re The Worst has been an incredible experience and FX Networks have been dream partners,”series creator Stephen Falk said. “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.”
“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 Nick Grad Co-President of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “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.”
You’re The Worst will begin its final season next year.
