You’re the Worst, the best show on television about being in your late 20s and early 30s and feeling like you should have your life together, and subsequently feeling guilty about not having your life together, returns on September 6. Last season ended with Jimmy proposing to Gretchen (at the scene of a fake murder) after telling her, “The world is absolutely lousy with people. And I hate them all. I hate everyone but you.” It might have been the first time Gretchen was genuinely happy since the show started (“We’re a family!”), but her excitement was short-lived: Jimmy went back to the car to grab a blanket, but ended up driving away in fear, leaving Gretchen behind.
He’s the actual worst.
Season four begins somewhere between a few weeks and a few months after the proposal. How can you tell? Jimmy’s rocking some nasty facial hair. I’m not talking his stalker mustache, but a sad-guy beard that practically screams, “I stopped caring multiple gallons of Trash Juice ago.” Gretchen isn’t doing much better, as seen in a recent wonderful and depressing promo. In fact, all the teasers FXX has released have been both wonderful and depressing.
