Hulu has not yet announced if the show will be coming back. This post will be updated with that information as it becomes available.
The third season of Difficult People has received positive reviews from critics, overall. Indiewire acknowledges that while it may be not be for everyone, it is always a “whipsmart, fast-paced comedy”. Decider labeled it “one of the funniest, most inappropriate (in the best way), and inventive comedies currently available.”
Season 3 asked the universal question: is there a ‘right’ time to give up on your dream? And if that counts as giving up on yourself or as a smart, mature decision.
Impressive additions to the cast included John Cho, who plays one of Billy’s love interests, as well as Vanessa Williams, Stockard Channing, Lucy Liu, and Rosie O’Donnell. Fred Armisen and Jackie Hoffman also reprised their roles as Billy’s brother and sister-in-law.
