'Casual': Hulu releases trailer for fourth and final season
Valerie, Alex and Laura are back for one last time as they try to put their lives together several years after they left their story loose-ended in the third season of 'Casual'
Hulu has released the trailer for the fourth season of its comedy series 'Casual'. The final season is set to premiere on July 31, and the network has come up with an appropriate title for the final one: "Well, we had a good ride."
Season 4 will pick up several years after the events in Season 3. At the end of the last season, Alex (Tommy Dewey) and Rae (Maya Erskine) left their discussion on abortion midway as they laughed about something silly that Alex said. Valerie (Michaela Watkins) and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) parted ways with the hopeful idea that their complicated relationship will eventually make its way out of all the nonsense. Alex and Valerie have a moment of reconciliation after which Valerie realizes that Alex has actually moved on.
The trailer to season 4 opens with Valerie asking her friend Leon (Nyasha Hatendi) "Imagine your world in five years. What do you see?".
Alex and Rae seem to have had a child and are now seen raising a daughter together. Laura comes back home after her two years abroad and is now in a serious relationship. However, things seem to have taken a U-turn for Valerie as she appears to be suffering from a mid-life crisis and is about to make a life-altering decision.
While the trailer has almost set the pace for the events to gradually unfold, the poster appears to be a little gloomy as it depicts Alex, Valerie and Tara sitting at the back of a car stranded in a desert. Objects are falling from the sky and a thick black smoke is rising up from the engine. It sets the stage for the final act of what can be considered to be Hulu's most original and entertaining series.
While 'Casual' might be winging up, Hulu has a number of other originals lined up that we are looking forward to: 'The Handmaid's Tale', Marvel's 'Runaways', 'Harlots', 'Future Man', and 'I Love You America With Sarah Silverman'. Lastly, Stephen King anthology 'Castle Rock' is set to release on July 25.
'Casual' season 4 will premiere on July 31, Tuesday, as Hulu makes a Netflix-style release by dropping all episodes at once.
