Another one bites the dust! The list of everything that’s leaving Netflix in 2018 has grown by one more title, as the streaming giant has just confirmed that the impending third season of Judd Apatow’s quirky rom-com Love, which is set to premiere on March 9, will be its last.
The news comes as somewhat of a shock, as back in October, the show ranked number 17 on Netflix’s list of top 20 originals binged within the first 24 hours of release.
The series, which stars Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs, was originally picked up as a “two-season straight-to-series order” in 2016, but back in February, fans were delighted to learn that it would be coming back for a third round. Unfortunately, its third will be its last, though there *is* a small silver lining.
According to Apatow, the show’s co-creator and executive producer, the show will wrap things in a super sweet way. “I am really excited about the third season of Love,” he teased. “I think it is our sweetest, funniest season and ends our story in a beautiful way.” Awwww!
Cindy Holland, the VP of Original Series at Netflix, echoed his sentiments, saying, “We couldn’t have hoped for better companions to go on this journey of Love with than the incomparable Judd Apatow, Gillian Jacobs, Paul Rust, Lesley Arfin, and the rest of the fantastic cast and crew who have brought this special series to life.” She added, “Over three seasons, viewers around the world have laughed, cringed, and cried with Mickey and Gus, and we are excited to share this concluding journey with their fans.”
Tune in to their final episodes on March 9 on Netflix.
