Casual is approaching the end.
Hulu has renewed the comedy-drama for a fourth and final season, RenewCancelTV has confirmed.
Deadline was first to break the news.
Casual centers on a bachelor brother and his newly divorced sister living under one roof again. Together, they coach each other through the crazy world of dating while raising her teenage daughter.
The final season announcement should give the writers enough time to bring the series to a ‘satisfying’ close.
However, given the show’s declining value for Hulu, the decision to end the series with Season 4 is a simple one, as the alternative would have been cancellation and potential loose ends for a fifth season which would never arrive.
In effect, the final season send-off is a more PR-savvy way to cancel a dying show.
The 8-episode fourth/final season of Casual will premiere summer 2018.
