FX Networks has announced late-summer returns for two of its popular and critically-acclaimed comedy series, with You're the Worst bowing its fourth season on Wednesday, September 6, at 10 pm on FXX; and the sophomore season of Pamela Adlon's Better Things set to premiere on Thursday, September 14, at 10 pm on FX.
You're the Worst is described as…"as a modern look at love and happiness told through the eyes of two people — Narcissistic, brash, and stubborn Jimmy (Chris Geere) and cynical, people-pleasing, and self-destructive Gretchen (Aya Cash) — who haven't been very successful with either. It's the story of Gretchen and Jimmy, fear, heartbreak, romance, sex, food, Los Angeles, Sunday Funday, friendship, and the fact that sometimes the worst people make the best partners." Geere is known from his previous work in The Spa and Waterloo Road; while Cash has appeared in The Newsroom and the film The Wolf of Wall Street. Desmin Borges (Preacher) and Kether Donohue (Pitch Perfect) will co-star.
Nominated for both Writers' Guild of America and Critics' Choice awards for its first season, Better Things follows the life of Sam Fox (Adlon), a single other and working actor trying to raise her three daughters (Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. From the show's description: "She's mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her quirky mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. 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." Adlon, also known for her work in Californication and Louie, will direct all ten episodes of the second season; and serve as writer and executive producer alongside Louis C.K. Edward was last seen as Madison Whitefeather in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend; and Imrie was last seen in the film A Cure For Wellness and will be adding her voice to the upcoming animated film Happy Family.
