FXX wants more of You’re the Worst. The half-hour adult comedy has been renewed for a fourth season as just announced by the network and according to the official announcement, season four will air in 2017. Season three is currently airing on Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT, with the season premiere bringing in the show’s highest ratings to date.
“Expertly written, brilliantly acted, You’re the Worst continues to be hilarious and excellent,” said Eric Schrier, Co-President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “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.”
Commenting on the renewal, executive producer/writer Stephen 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.”
The Plot: 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.
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 (Geere) has inadvertently found himself paired up with cynical, people-pleasing, and self-destructive Gretchen Cutler (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.
