Broad City has been given an official end date and we're heartbroken

Broad City

Broad City

We're thrilled with five seasons of a show like this. The network did not pull the plug on the series, but the actors did.

Glazer and Jacobson also announced that they will end the hilarious, quirky, two-time Emmy-nominated Broad City with its upcoming fifth season. It was really driven by creative storytelling and when is a natural life? "We'd never want them to overstay their welcome", Alterman said. "They've got great ideas for how they want to wind down the series, and we're excited to be doing more with them". "I think it's going to be great celebration of this show". It is executive produced by both Jacobson and Glazer. They also serve as showrunners, writers, producers, and directors, so it was entirely their call to end the series. "It's been a phenomenal experience, and we've put ourselves into it completely", Glazer and Jacobson said in a joint statement.

"Broad City" has officially been renewed for its fifth season, but unfortunately, Season 5 will be the show's last.

Broad City was given a two-season renewal in early 2016 ahead of its Season 3 premiere.

The duo is already developing three new Comedy Central series under the partnership: the animated Mall Town USA, where a 13-year-old girl navigates the tricky social landscape of America's temple of commerce; Platinum Status, following the unpredictable aftermath of a gay man's post-breakup life; and Young Professionals, a coming-of-age tale of five Washington, D.C. housemates written by David Litt, a former speechwriter for President Obama.

There is another silver lining: Comedy Central is looking to bring us more from Glazer and Jacobson.

Available on-air, online and on-the-go via the Comedy Central App, Comedy Central (www.cc.com) is the #1 brand in comedy and is owned by, and is a registered trademark of, Comedy Partners, a wholly-owned unit of Viacom. They are Mall Town USA, Platinum Status, and Young Professionals.

Between bouts of sex therapy, near-miss foursomes, and introducing the world to the phrase "pegging", "Broad City" remained one of the most bluntly forward comedies dealing with sex on TV.
