EXCLUSIVE: Pivot has given a Season 4 greenlight to Please Like Me, Josh Thomas’ coming-of-age comedy from Australia. Production gets under way this week in Melbourne on the six-episode new season, which will premiere November 10. Creator-writer-director Thomas stars as Josh alongside Thomas Ward, Caitlin Stasey, Emily Barclay, Debra Lawrance, Hannah Gadsby, Keegan Joyce, David Roberts and Renee Lim. Watch Thomas and Ward make the announcement above.
In Season 3, Josh’s boyfriend (Joyce) came out to his parents, and Josh’s best friend Tom (Ward) tried being single — for a while. and Hannah (Gadsby) moved in with Mum (Lawrence). Josh’s ex Claire (Stasey) moved to Germany for a fresh start but returned home. Dad (Roberts), Mae (Renee Lim) and baby Grace settled into a new family’s chaotic routine — until Mae dropped a bombshell.
In the upcoming season, as his coffee cart business thrives, Josh’s personal life is in upheaval. After a jubilant honeymoon phase, the weight of maintaining a “proper” relationship crashes in on Josh and Arnold, while Josh tries to juggle his hapless parents and aimless friends.
“Josh Thomas has a rare ability to take the most awkward, confounding and even dark moments of our lives and relationships and make them funny,” said Belisa Balaban, EVP Original Programming at Pivot.
Please Like Me is a Participant Media original series executive produced by Thomas, Todd Abbott, Kevin Whyte, Rick Kalowski, Brett Sleigh, Jeff Skoll, Belisa Balaban and Chris Loveall.
