Everyone has had an ex that’s hard to let go of, and the littlest network is no different. Despite being practically invisible to Nielsen households, The CW has renewed its Crazy Ex-Girlfriend TV show for a fourth season.
A CW satirical musical comedy, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend stars Rachel Bloom, who co-created the show with Aline Brosh McKenna. Bloom plays Rebecca Bunch, a “tightly wound” Ivy educated lawyer. The cast also includes Vincent Rodriguez III, Donna Lynne Champlin, Pete Gardner, Vella Lovell, Gabrielle Ruiz, David Hull, and Scott Michael Foster. After reconnecting with her summer camp crush, Rebecca quits a top New York law firm and takes off for California. She’s not following him though, as that would be crazy.
