A streaming series that recently wrapped its fourth season won’t be coming back, with the show’s creator breaking the news online. The series is the comedy-drama “Please Like Me,” which has been running on Hulu.

Creator, star, writer, director and producer Josh Thomas took to Twitter to explain shutting down the show, saying he and the other producers made the decision because they felt the show was “complete.”

“This show is so intensely personal, it re-creates the most intimate moments of my life and lays them out for anyone to watch,” Thomas wrote in his post. “Seeing how people have connected with this show has been tremendously confidence building for me and I’m really grateful for that.”

TVLine notes: “‘Please Like Me’ starred Thomas as a young gay man in Australia dealing with awkward dating experiences, his friends’ romantic misadventures and his divorced parents. It got decidedly dark at times — in the pilot, Josh’s mother attempts suicide — but was a cult critical favorite both in Australia and here in the U.S.”

The show originated in Australia, with its first three seasons airing in the U.S. on Pivot before the series moved to Hulu. All four seasons continue to be available on the streaming service.
