After four seasons of adventures, enlightening vag talk, lots of weed smoking, a lil bit o’ pegging, and a lot of “yas kween!” the next season of Broad City will be its last.

The fifth and final season will air in early 2019, but Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson will still exist in and around our vision. They’ve signed a development deal with Viacom (Comedy Central’s parent company) and, per The Hollywood Reporter, three projects are in the works. (They’re not writing or starring in any of them.) That includes Mall Town USA, a that THR describes as “an animated comedy about a 13-year-old girl navigating puberty and society in American culture at the mall.”

The two inseparable bong heads released a joint statement, which reads:

Broad City has been our baby and first love for almost 10 years, since we started as a web series. It’s been a phenomenal experience, and we’ve put ourselves into it completely. Broad City’s always had a spontaneous pace and feeling, and ending after season five honors that spirit. We are very excited to bring new voices and points of view to Comedy Central and continue our collaboration together in new ways.”


It will soon be time to bid them adieu.

Oh man, I love this show so much. I hope it goes out on a high note, fingers crossed that Ilana and Lincoln end up together. Hopefully we also get to see Trey one last time.
