Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Ending With Season 4 Lets the elaborate fade Out on a High Note – eonline
Don’t bawl for them, West Covina, the truth is, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ending with season four is not just OK, it’s noteworthy. Please forgive this poor attempt at Evita humor, it seemed right with Crazy Ex being a musical comedy and everything.
The CW isn’t saying this upcoming season will be Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s final, but series star and co-creator Rachel Bloom told everything of Twitter the fourth season will be the final. This is something Bloom and co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna hold been saying for years, basically since the elaborate started. Letting the creative forces behind the elaborate dictate its close is the best scenario for any TV elaborate. Period.
“Just turned on my wifi on our flight to Chicago and found out that #CrazyExGirlfriend has been renewed for a final season,” Bloom tweeted. Bloom is on tour, performing with her Crazy Ex-Girlfriend cast.
The CW declined to comment on her tweet and only confirmed a fourth season was coming. Bloom told E! News in November 2016 that the elaborate would be “four at most.”
“It’s a series that lives in being finite,” she said. “It’s because [Aline Brosh McKenna] is a screenwriter. She was like, ‘I just want to map out the whole series.’ We spent months just marinating the characters and really mapping it out. Our ratings aren’t great, brilliant, so I don’t reflect CW would be like, ‘Please give us 10 seasons!’ It works to our advantage in that sense.”
With an ending in intellect, the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend team has been able to craft a smart chronicle for Rebecca Bunch and her friends. The lead character, which is played by Bloom, has grown significantly (for both favorable and tainted) over the already completed three seasons. In fact, Rebecca Bunch and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend hold depicted more character growth than most long-running shows accomplish in their lifetime. How were they able to achieve this? They’re gifted writers and storytellers and…they planned. They had a vision that wasn’t, “How much money can we develop?” or “How many episodes accomplish we need before we reach syndication?”
This is TV at its best, when it’s a medium for entertaining stories what can leave the audience convinced and wanting more. whether preceding seasons hold taught viewers anything, it’s that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will fade out on top, smarter, funnier and more subversive than ever—the way it should close, the way every TV elaborate should close: strong.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ending with season four is the best thing the elaborate can accomplish. (Please note: Should it return for season five in 2019 or as a revival, well, frigid, I guess? But let’s stick with what Bloom said.) The chronicle of Rebecca Bunch, the crazy ex-girlfriend, will fade down in TV history as one of the greatest TV character arcs because Bloom and Brosh McKenna were able to reveal the chronicle on their terms, including ending when they want to.
Will TV be a microscopic less fun without the weekly songs of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? Yes. Will the elaborate be missed? Yes. But it’s better to miss a elaborate that ends with dignity than miss a elaborate because it’s a shell of its former self.
There’s one season left of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, cherish it.
