‘You’re The Worst’ S4 and ‘Better Things’ Set September FX Premieres
Oh sweet Sunday Funday, You’re The Worst is back. The fan-favorite and critical darling FXX comedy has officially put an end to our misery with a September premiere date for Season 4, joined by Pamela Adlon’s FX Better Things.
Per the network’s official confirmation, You’re The Worst Season 4 will kick off FXX’s September comedy slate with a one-hour premiere on Wednesday, September 6 at 10:00 P.M. Just over a week later, the Louis C.K.-produced Better Things will return for Season 2 on FX proper, airing Thursday, September 14 at 10:00 P.M.
The full synopsis for You’re The Worst Season 4 also puts an even darker spin on that jilted proposal finale:
After a whirlwind courtship, and a very rough post-cohabitation period of dealing with Gretchen’s clinical depression, Jimmy and Gretchen were forced to learn how to manage a relationship in the face of tragedy when Jimmy’s father unexpectedly died. Ultimately, drawn closer, Jimmy proposed and then suddenly disappeared when confronted with the notion that Gretchen would be his family. Now broken up, and involved with other people, both struggle to move on while constantly being pulled back toward one another.
Here’s the synopsis for Better Things, which also notes that Adlon directed all ten episodes this year:
Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well. Sometimes, heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while.
September’s still a ways off, so stay tuned for the latest on You’re The Worst Season 4 and Better Things Season 2 in the meantime.
