'Broad City': Comedy Central announces final season premiere date for the odd-couple comedy series
The series follows Ilana and Abbi, two Jewish American women in their twenties, who experience adventures of carelessness and frivolity in New York City
Comedy Central has recently revealed the premiere date for the fifth and final season of 'Broad City'.
After four seasons of working odd jobs, interesting plots, relationships, weird decisions and awkward moments, Ilana and Abbi are now on the way to their final season which will debut on January 24, 2019, 10 pm ET.
The series follows Ilana and Abbi, two Jewish American women who are in their twenties, as the duo experience adventures of carelessness and frivolity in New York City. Ilana tries to avoid working as much as possible while pursuing her relentless hedonism and Abbi seeks to make a career as an illustrator, often getting sidetracked into Ilana's schemes.
All new episodes of 'Broad City' will be followed by Comedy Central's brand-new half-hour scripted series, 'The Other Two'. Comedy Central even released a video along with the date announcement. The announcement that season five will be the final season was revealed back in April this year. During the time this news was unveiled, it was also brought to the notice of viewers and fans that the creators and stars of the series, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, have signed a new first-look agreement with the channel.
As part of their agreement, Comedy Central put three new series into action. 'Mall Town USA' with writer-creator Gabe Liedman, 'Young Professionals' with writer David Litt, executive produced by Glazer and Jacobson; and the third, 'Platinum Status,' written by Glazer’s brother Eliot and executively produced by Glazer with Principato Young and Electric Avenue’s Will Arnett and Marc Forman.
