Jimmy, Gretchen, and the rest of You’re the Worst‘s colorful characters will continue to be awful people for another year. FXX has renewed the critically beloved comedy for a fourth season. The series, which just aired its fourth episode of Season 3 last week, has been bringing in its highest ratings yet for FXX this season.
“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,” said series creator Stephen Falk in a statement. “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 a**es because they’ve already picked up the next season, but it is heartfelt.”
“Expertly written, brilliantly acted, You’re the Worst continues to be hilarious and excellent,” added Eric Schrier, president of original programming at 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.”
You’re the Worst stars Aya Cash, Chris Geere, Kether Donohue, and Desmin Borges and airs at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays on FXX. Catch the fifth episode of Season 3 tonight.
