In news that surprised no-one with the slightest idea of how money works, this just happened:
Hey I have news. We have decided Season 4 #PleaseLikeMe is the last. I've loved making this show for you all so much. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/QKAk5nZQLV

While it’s mildly interesting to us that it seems the show has ended because they “feel like it is complete” and not because the US network funding them went out of business and the ABC was probably not all that excited to go back to full-funding a show that rates so poorly its viewer numbers might just be a statistical anomaly, to be fair there really wasn’t much of anywhere left for the story to go. So much like the end of season one then.
And seriously, we’re not at all saddened that Thomas’ lust for killing off characters for cheap emotional engagement didn’t lead to the fifth season of Please Like Me becoming a Hunger Games-style murder-fest. His cast of characters weren’t that annoying to watch standing around talking about themselves seemingly for days on end, honest.
