The trailer for the workplace/stoner/generally awesome Comedy Central series Workaholics has hit the Web, and it goes a bit against the grain of what we’ve come to expect from the show. 

It leads with series regular (and writer/director/editor of the show) Kyle Newacheck being drug from a car by nameless thugs and shot in the head. It also includes a Mad Max take on Ders, Adam, and Blake’s 1985 Volvo 740 (with great timing, considering the new Fury Road trailer hit yesterday); a lot of whiskey drinking with topless women; briefcases full of cash; a mountain of cocaine; rocket launchers, flame throwers, and bloody chainsaws; skydiving; and the deaths of nearly every supporting character in the show. It’s all-out gang warfare in a desert that’s very much NSFW:

Of course, before cutting to the guys walking away from an exploding gas station, a title card appears to clear up that “NONE OF THIS HAPPENS” in the show’s fifth season. Which is kind of a shame, really. I have no doubts that the new season will be fantastic, but, against the more logical portions of my brain, I was really hoping that Comedy Central had gone completely mad and given the green light to a $90 million season of Workaholics

Maybe we’ll get Mad Max-meets-Workaholics extravaganza in the show’s final season. But I hope the final season is still many years away.
