Stephen Falk is “optimistic” about You’re The Worst Season 3 renewal, but he’s not counting his chickens.
Speaking to THR, the series creator expressed his desire to continue the FXX comedy series into a third season, but notes that the decision is out of his hands:
I [haven’t heard about renewal]. Just like last season, I’m optimistic, but feel like we’ve told a satisfying story, but I’d love to have more chapters. But [FX president John] Landgraf stated that he considers a show renewal from three different people who get a vote [executives, critics and viewers]. Hopefully we’ll get that vote. I’ve done my job, and the network is happy with the job I’ve done.
As for whether the upcoming Season 2 finale ends on a cliffhanger, resolution or somewhere in-between, Falk offered:
The [depression] storyline will play itself out in a very satisfying way. I think a lot of people who watch feel pessimistic about Jimmy and Gretchen’s chances, and I acknowledge that. There certainly are hints that can be seen in the opening theme song lyrics [“gonna leave you anyway”]. I can’t say what they ending will be, but I think we’ll generate a lot of buzz from this season and we’ll see it all played out in hopefully surprising but inevitable ways.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of You’re The Worst…
