Rachel Bloom's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend tweet is a boon and a bane. The comedy musical series' season 4 is renewed, but sadly, it will be the last one.
The 30-year-old comedian took to social media to share the good and bad news to her fans as she attached a photo of her and friends in a flight to Chicago. However, The CW is still quiet about the supposed ending, leaving fans wondering if Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 4 will indeed be the last one.
"Just turned on my wifi on our flight to Chicago and found out that #CrazyExGirlfriend has been renewed for a final season," Bloom wrote.
From the Start
While the network remains mum on the fate of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Bloom and co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna already made it clear since the beginning that they planned to have four seasons. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2016, Bloom revealed that the idea was originally supposed to be for a film and not a show.
Furthermore, the actress explained that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is about a woman and her real struggles in life at one point, which won't be enough for nine seasons. Bloom and McKenna even stressed that they had "no interest in making a show that's just going to spit out copies of itself."
Bloom in 2016 won a Golden Globe for her lead role in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. She was also nominated for the same category last year. The show was able to snatch two Emmys as well, but even with the nods from award-giving bodies, it still remains to be one of The CW's underrated shows.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season 3 was less watched, as it only earned 0.2 rating from the 18-49 adult key demographic, or an average of 631,000 audience per episode. The same can also be said of another CW show, Jane the Virgin, which had gotten some love though less viewers.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend centers around Bloom's Rebecca Bunch and the people around her, each having unpredictable story arc. An example of this is Valencia, played by Gabrielle Ruiz, an ex of Becca's ex Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), who later on became the lead's friend and who turned out to be bisexual.
The fourth season, as reported, would focus on Becca and the gang and their efforts on their pursuit of the true meaning of happiness. With this plot, it seemed that the characters are naturally heading down the path where it should be going to.
