Hulu has canceled its original comedy Difficult People after three seasons.

The series, created by Julie Klausner and starring Klausner and Billy Eichner as misanthropic best friends looking for a big break, quickly gained a following for its irreverent look at celebrity culture and the neck-snapping pace of its jokes. It’s Twitter translated to sitcom. It also elevated gay and trans characters beyond parody or stereotype.

In season 3 especially, the show felt like it turned a corner and mastered its formula, and its ensemble cast solidified even more. If you’re looking for a truly breathtaking evisceration of Woody Allen and Mike Pence, find season 3’s “Strike Rat.” It might be one of the best episodes of TV this year.

Oh, and you should have no problem finding Kevin Spacey jokes.


Hulu has not given a reason why the series was canceled, though as The Hollywood Reporter notes, it’s attempting to revamp its comedy slate. We’ve reached out for comment.
