Comedy Central announced today that its hit series Workaholics will come to a close after its upcoming seventh season. The series was given a two-season renewal for Season 6 and Season 7 back in 2015, following another two-season renewal for Season 4 and Season 5 in 2013. Here's what series stars and creators Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine and Anders Holm had to say in a statement.
"We would like to thank Comedy Central, Doug Herzog, Kent Alterman and all of the fans for turning us from Boyz II Men. It was an incredible run but we've decided to leave on a HIGH note. Get it?"
Deadline has the news of this show coming to an end, which was one of the first shows ordered to series under Kent Alterman's regime as head of programming. The pilot was ordered after the trio's online sketch videos for their comedy group Mail Order Comedy were discovered by a network executive. Here's what Kent Alterman, who now serves as the president of Comedy Central, had to say in his statement.
"We got more years of stunted development than any of us could have hoped for. We salute the boys and thank them."
Workaholics was co-created by Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck. The series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck. Executive Producers include Mail Order Comedy, Kevin Etten, Avalon Television's Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin, Jon Thoday and Isaac Horne. Jim Sharp and Rachel Olson are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central. Production is currently under way on the final season, which will feature Nina Dobrev in her first TV gig since leaving The CW's The Vampire Diaries. The new episodes are expected to debut in January.
From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, Workaholics is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends, played by series creators Blake Anderson, Adam Devine and Anders Holm, who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day...even if they don't know what day it is. The series also stars Jillian Bell as Jillian, Maribeth Monroe as Alice, Erik Griffin as Montez and Kyle Newacheck as Karl.
