A sweet and surreal look at the life-and-death stakes of dating, Man Seeking Woman follows naïve twenty-something “Josh Greenberg” on his unrelenting quest for love. Josh soldiers through one-night stands, painful break-ups, a blind date with a troll, time travel, sex aliens, many deaths and a Japanese penis monster named “Tanaka” on his fantastical journey to find love.
It is being reported that FXX will not be continuing with Man Seeking Woman, opting to cancel the series after its recently-concluded third season. Throughout its run the show has garnered its share of critical praise but ultimately did not continue to attract enough of an audience for the network to justify ordering Season 4.
Based on Simon Rich's book of short stories, "The Last Girlfriend on Earth," Man Seeking Woman took a sweet - and absurd - look at the surreal life-and-death stakes of dating, following a naïve 20-something's uncompromising quest for love.
