Australian comedian Josh Thomas has announced that the fourth season of his ABC series “Please Like Me” is the last.
The 29-year-old comedian shared the sad news on Friday morning, thanking the cast and crew and saying he was happy to leave the show at its emotional fourth season conclusion.
“We decided this because we are really happy with what we’ve made and feel like it is complete,” Josh said in a statement posted to Twitter.
“I want to thank everyone who has watched the show and sent me a friendly note. This show is so intensely personal, it recreates the most intimate moments of my life and lays them out for anyone to watch.
“Seeing how people have connected with this show has been tremendously confidence building for me and I’m really grateful for that. Thank you.
“I’m focussing now on what’s next, I hope to see you there.”
Please Like Me began in 2013, and was loosely based on Josh’s experiences of coming out as gay and living as a queer Australian twenty-something.
The show won local AACTA Awards during its run and was nominated for an international Emmy award in 2014.
Producer Josh Abbott added: “So many viewers have let us know that this recent season had a profound effect on them that we really don’t want to spoil that by going back to the well one too many times.
“We’re proud to have made a show that connected so personally with so many people and told some stories that aren’t always told on television, and we’re grateful to the networks who took a chance on us, to the incomparable cast and crew, and mostly to the amazing fans who embraced Please Like Me.”
