Season three of You’re the Worst is under way. At the winter Television Critics Association press tour, the FXX comedy’s creator Stephen Falk discussed plans for the characters and the new season.
You’re the Worst was renewed for a third season last month, just as season two ended.
Season two of You’re the Worst ended with Jimmy and Gretchen saying “I love you” to each other after struggling through a challenging bout of Gretchen’s depression. At the press conference, Falk teased that the new season will pick up right after that moment:
Rather than a couple weeks later, I thought it’d be interesting to start with ‘I love you’ and see what happens when they walk right back into the house. … We like to make sure we’re telling one cohesive story per season that continues from last season. We’re going to see a continuum from season two. We’re trying hard not to top this season in terms of some ‘issue’ we’re dealing with like [Gretchen’s] depression [in season two]. It’s a very seductive idea. … We’re continuing with the fallout from last season and always moving our characters forward. Maybe some of them will fall.”
And if fans were wondering if Lindsay (Kether Donohue) will sing again, Falk said there’s a good chance she will:
I can’t help but think it won’t have some spillover into the show just by sheer force of her constantly asking if she can sing and dance. We did that scene where she did the dance in episode seven while Gretchen was trying to dance away her depression. It was so charming and stupid and silly and beautifully done that I can’t think we won’t have something there.”
