Comedy Central's 'Broad City' to End After 5 Seasons

Comedy Central has today announced that the upcoming fifth season of its original comedy series Broad City will be its last. However, stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson have signed first-look deals with Comedy Central parent company Viacom, that will keep them at the company for the next three years as they develop new projects.

The fifth and final season of Broad City will air in early 2019, more than a year after its fourth season ended. The delay comes as Glazer and Jacobson are in-demand with booming film and television schedules.

"Broad City has been our baby and first love for almost 10 years, since we started as a web series. It's been a phenomenal experience, and we've put ourselves into it completely. Broad City's always had a spontaneous pace and feeling, and ending after season five honors that spirit. We are very excited to bring new voices and points of view to Comedy Central and continue our collaboration together in new ways," said Glazer and Jacobson in a joint statement.
