REAL TALK: The third season of the CW’s critically acclaimed Crazy Ex–Girlfriend took the show from fun-crazy (impromptu-risk-taking, truth-bending, instagram-stalking) to dark-crazy (mother-kidnapping, reputation-destroying, murder-plotting) and brought audiences to a finale that seemed to presage our heroine Rebecca Bunch (played by show co-creator Rachel Bloom, pictured) facing a hefty punishment for her actions. It left some fans wondering whether there would even be a fourth season, and we are happy to report that there will be; but it is with mixed emotions that we confirm it is slated to be the show’s last. At ComicCon, Bloom and Crazy co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna insisted that the show was always meant to have a four-season arc, and that this last season will tie together the show’s at-times manic swings in mood and storytelling style. The pair also revealed that the final season (which mostly features original songs) will — by fan request — feature “Cell Block Tango” from the musical Chicago and that the show may have future life as a concert tour or stage musical. The farewell season premieres October 12.
