For almost three and a half seasons now, You’re the Worst has been consistently one of the best shows on television. Coming from one of our very own Film Pigs himself, Stephen Falk, the series has managed to not only be one of the funniest romantic comedies that television has probably ever seen, but has managed to delve into seriously emotional issues and themes, all the while maintaining the balance between comedy and drama in a way that feels human and real.

Currently, the series is in the middle of its third season on FXX, and for those of you out there that have been desperately hoping like us that the series would return for a fourth season next year, it looks like your prayers have been answered.

FXX has announced today that they have renewed You’re the Worst for a fourth season next year, an announcement that many fans of the show were waiting with uncertainty for the further into the show’s third season it’s gone. This also comes just a week after the network also renewed freshman comedies, Atlanta and Better Things, for new seasons as well. Eric Schrier, who along with Nick Grad serves as president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions commented on the news with the following:

“Expertly written, brilliantly acted, ‘You’re the Worst’ continues to be hilarious and excellent. 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.”

Falk added:

“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. 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 asses because they’ve already picked up the next season, but it is heartfelt.”

To say that this is good news, would be an understatement, and while You’re the Worst‘s ratings haven’t been bad, they haven’t been the kind to guarantee a renewal each season either. We can rest easy watching the rest of this current, stellar third season though, knowing that Jimmy, Gretchen, Edgar, and Lindsay won’t be saying goodbye any time soon. Thankfully.

You’re the Worst airs Wednesday nights on FXX.
