The streaming platform announced it would not renew Difficult People for a fourth season.

Hulu has canceled the Julie Klausner-created comedy series after three seasons.

Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner play NY comedians and best friends also named Julie and Billy in the critically praised comedy, which featured a top-notch cast including Andrea Martin, John Cho, Cole Escola, Gabourey Sidibe, James Urbaniak and Jackie Hoffman. All 28 produced episodes of the show's 3 seasons are now streaming on the digital platform. While their friends and acquaintances move on to find success and love, they continue to struggle with careers and relationships, getting more bitter by the day.


The third and final season, which premiered in August, also saw Billy trying a Mike Pence gay conversion therapy kit, Matthew (Escola) auditioning for RuPaul's Drag Race, and the whole gang accidentally trying ayahuasca. Meanwhile, Billy begins to sour on NY, just as he begins to fall for his first real boyfriend.

Despite its critical acclaim, Difficult People seems to have fallen prey to the transition recently happening at Hulu.

Eichner and Nayfack have both paid tribute to the show. Klausner and Poehler executive produce alongside 3 Arts' Dave Becky, Tony Hernandez, Brooke Posch, Jeffrey Walker and showrunner Scott King.
