Centers on two toxic, self-destructive people who fall in love and attempt a relationship, it isn't a typical romantic comedy. Narcissist Jimmy Shive-Overly thinks all relationships are doomed from the start, while stubborn cynic Gretchen Cutler is certain that amorous bonds aren't her thing. When the two meet at a wedding, though, there's a sea change: They go home together and find they're beginning to fall for each other, heartbreak, ardor and other feelings.
FXX announced today that You're The Worst has been renewed for a fifth and final season. The veteran comedy has enjoyed a successful run on the cable network, with each season garnering acclaim from both critics and audiences alike. The decision to end the show was reportedly mutual between FXX and creator Stephen Falk.
A romantic comedy of sorts, You're The Worst follows a brash, self-involved writer who has fallen in love with a cynical, self-destructive public relations executive. Against their better judgement they attempt a relationship despite their toxic personalities. An inevitable series of ups and downs ensues, though no matter the situation, the two can't fight that they appear destined to be together.
Season 4 concludes tonight with back-to-back episodes. Look for Season 5 to premiere in the summer or fall of 2018.
