Comedy Central is pulling the plug on one of its series, but will keep the show’s creators and stars in the cable channel’s lineup. Variety reports that the channel will wrap “Broad City” after a fifth and final season, which will premiere in 2019.
The show comes from Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, who will remain on board with Comedy Central.
“The renewal is part of a new first-look agreement that will keep the Viacom-owned cable channel in business with the comedy duo as they draw the show that elevated their careers to a close and well after,” Variety reports.
Comedy Central President Kent Alterman said of Glazer and Jacobson: “We’ve had such a great collaboration with them and everyone was motivated to continue it. We also think that they’ve really evolved so much as producers and forces of nature. They’ve got great ideas for how they want to wind down the series, and we’re excited to be doing more with them.”
