In its first two seasons, You’re the Worst has proven to be among the very best shows on television. Based on the trailer for season three, it looks like audiences will be in for even more fun and emotional heartache this year.
No show we have seen has been able to do what You’re the Worst has done. In season one, the show was a fun take on a new relationship between Gretchen (Aya Cash) and Jimmy (Chris Geere). While other relationships were breaking down around them the two characters went through ups and downs of their own. It was pretty standard stuff, but done in a new way. In season two, Stephen Falk and his writing staff took You’re the Worst to a new level. The theme of mental health ran throughout the season. Watching Gretchen deal with mental health issues was heartbreaking and honest. The series went from just being a fun comedy to being a lot more.
The series isn’t just great because of the two leads. Edgar (Desmin Borges) and Lindsay (Kether Donohue) complement Gretchen and Jimmy. Their story lines became more and more developed in the second season. As much as we are looking forward to finding out how Jimmy and Gretchen will work through their issues, we can’t wait to see what Edgar and Lindsay have in store for us.
You’re the Worst premieres on Wednesday, August 31 on FXX at 10pm et.
