FXX’s beloved series You’re the Worst creator Stephen Falk and cast members Chris Geere, Aya Cash and Desmin Borges were on hand at the Television Critics Association winter session to talk about all things season 3.
The series was a true fan favorite in the first season and built up to one of the best shows on television last season. The show dealt with serious issues like depression, something that’s not always talked about or even covered, and did it in a very smart and funny way.
- When is the show coming back?
CALLING ALL YOU SLEEPY BITCHES!! The network revealed that production on season 3 will begin in late spring and return in the summer or fall. It’s still unclear as to an official premiere date.
- Will the show pick up right where we left off? Or will there be a time jump?
Creator and showrunner Stephen Falk, says that they will start season 3 “like literally right after the final ‘I love you” scene.'” Falk who dealt with a time jump back when he was on Weeds says the show “won’t miss a beat.”
- Are there plans to cover other serious issues besides depression?
Falk says that “we’re trying hard not to top this season with an issue we’re dealing with like we did with depression. We’re just continuing with the fallout from last season and moving the characters forward, maybe some of them will fall.” He liked the fact that they could step away from the main storyline adding “the ability to do episodes that break form, to do something else in a different way was really fun.” Cash added that she had PTSD and “went into a dark depression after the show was airing.” As far as knowing anything about her character’s spiral, she said that “Stephen is on lockdown and doesn’t let us know anything. I didn’t know about the depression until I started reading.”
- Sunday funday better than a Monday. Can only do it one way, & that is the drunk way!
The fan-favorite episode spread like wildfire and became a thing, even with my own friends, of going out for our regular Sunday brunches and singing the song along with drinking our mimosas. “I think we have the right idea. A tentative yes,” says Falk regarding more Sunday Funday episodes.
- Character development
Chris Geere chimed in by saying he’s “really enjoying all the characters evolving and us as actors evolving together.” Desmin Borges’s character had an uplifting storyline this season as he joined an improv class and fell for his teacher played by the talented Collette Wolfe. It was nice to see Edgar in a happy place and not dealing with his own issues and PTSD. Borges added: “I think Edgar is on an upward trajectory of where he could be. I think we’d all like to see him happy.”
