After a strong second season (Certified Fresh at 96 percent), FXX has renewed anti-rom-com rom-com You’re The Worst for a third season. Developed by Stephen Falk (Orange Is The New Black), the L.A.-set comedy stars Aya Cash and Chris Geere as Gretchen and Jimmy, a pair of dysfunctional lovers who are trying to make a real relationship work despite (or because of) their anti-social tendencies. The second season has been praised for its honest portrayal Gretchen’s clinical depression. Nick Grad, co-President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, said in a statement regarding the show’s renewal, “Stephen is one of the best new talents in comedy — as funny, thoughtful and original as You’re the Worst and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.” The second season finale of You’re The Worst airs next Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. on FXX.


RAMBO: NEW BLOOD TV SHOW IS IN THE WORKS

Since 2013, rumors of a Rambo reboot have swirled around entertainment news, and this week Variety reported that the long-gestating project may finally have some legs with Fox. Titled Rambo: New Blood, the one-hour drama script ordered by Fox is said to “explore the complex relationship between Rambo and his son, J.R., an ex-Navy SEAL.” Though nothing has been confirmed yet on the casting front, Deadline suggested that Sylvester Stallone could reprise his role from the movies. Rambo: New Blood follows the trend of rebooting movies into TV shows, which included Limitless, Minority Report, and Ash vs. Evil Dead this year.
