FXX has set a January 9, 2019 premiere date for the fifth and final season of the half-hour comedy series, You’re the Worst. The fifth season will air on Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT.
The network also released a brand new season five trailer along with the premiere date announcement. The trailer shows Gretchen in a wedding dress, but it also reassures fans of the series that even if Gretchen and Jimmy are planning a wedding, that doesn’t mean they’ll start behaving like responsible adults.
The Season 5 Plot of You’re the Worst:
“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). After a whirlwind courtship, and a very rough post-cohabitation period of dealing with Gretchen’s clinical depression, Jimmy and Gretchen were forced to learn how to manage a relationship in the face of tragedy when Jimmy’s father unexpectedly died. Ultimately drawn closer, Jimmy proposed and then suddenly disappeared when confronted with the notion that Gretchen would be his family. After a prolonged period of separation, Jimmy and Gretchen are in it for the long haul now… at least they think they are. Maybe.
Rounding out the cast is Desmin Borges, who plays ‘Edgar Quintero,’ Jimmy’s once homeless war veteran roommate who, having recently learned to manage his PTSD, is now firmly entrenched in the world of television comedy writing; and Kether Donohue as ‘Lindsay Jillian,’ Gretchen’s best friend and former partner in crime who, after conquering the corporate world, finds herself yearning for love again.”
