FX Reveals Premiere Date for Final Season of 'Better Things'

FX has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming fifth and final season of its original comedy series Better Things.

The fifth and final season will launch on Monday, February 28 at 10/9c. with back-to-back episodes. 

In its final season, the comedy focuses on "the road ahead" for its unconventional, unfiltered heroine, Sam Fox, so devoted to her life as a working actor and single mother of three that she's left little time for that one elusive thing: herself. As she navigates three daughters, each coming of age; the challenges of her chosen career; and her mother's increasing signs of aging (as well as her own) - Sam embraces each moment, and each member of her family, with a fierce love, raw honesty and biting humor. As each of the Fox women come into the next phase of their life, they are inspired to reevaluate themselves, learn from the past and find their own direction.

The comedy stars Pamela Adlon, Mikey Madison, Hannah Riley, Olivia Edward and Celia Imrie.

Guest stars for the final season include Lena Waithe, Ron Cephas Jones, Danny Trejo, Marty Krofft, Clive Russell, Casey Wilson, Rainbow Sun Francks, Angela Kinsey, Kevin Michael Richardson, Nelson Lee, Lennon Parham and Usman Ally, as well as the return of Diedrich Bader, Kevin Pollak, Rosalind Chao, Judy Gold, Cree Summer, Alysia Reiner, Greg Cromer, Dominic Burgess, Matthew Glave and Mario Cantone.

Adlon is also an executive producer, writer and the sole director. FX Productions produces.

"While it's bittersweet to present the finale of Pamela's masterpiece, we adore the upcoming season and think fans will love the episodes as much as we do," said John Landgraf, Chairman, FX. "Our thanks to Pamela, the extraordinary cast, the crew and everyone who worked on Better Things for putting an exclamation point on this brilliant, original, radically humanistic series."
