FX Networks has announced the half-hour comedy series You’re the Worst has been renewed for a fifth season. The bad news for fans of the series is season five will be the show’s final season. FX Networks announced series creator/showrunner Stephen Falk and the network jointly agreed on ending the series next season.

You’re the Worst‘s fifth and final season will air on FXX in 2018.

“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, 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.”

“Making You’re The Worst has been an incredible experience and FX Networks have been dream partners,” added 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.”

The cast is led by Chris Geere and Aya Cash. Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue co-star. Season four of the critically acclaimed comedy finishes up tonight with back-to-back episodes.
