Max's 'The Other Two' to End After 3 Seasons

Max has today announced its original comedy series The Other Two will be ending with its current third season. The announcement comes ahead of tomorrow's release of the third season finale - which will now serve as the series finale.

The comedy starred Drew Tarver, Heléne Yorke, Case Walker, Ken Marino, Molly Shannon, Brandon Scott Jones, Josh Segarra and Wanda Sykes.

Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider created the comedy. They executive produced with Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, Tony Hernandez and Blair Breard. MTV Entertainment Studios, Broadway Video and Jax Media produced. 

"It is bittersweet to say goodbye to the Dubek family after three seasons, but we always knew, both creatively and personally, that this was where we wanted to end their stories," said Kelly and Schneider. "And because we are quite literally out of ways to humiliate Drew Tarver, so what's the point? We are deeply grateful to everyone (gays) who watched the show, to Max for giving us a second home and life, and to our writers, producers and crew, who gave so much of their time, talent, and passion to this show over the last 45ish years. And finally, an enormous thank you to Heléne, Drew, Molly, Case, Wanda, Josh, Brandon, and everyone in our brilliant cast (except Ken) who all made this show better than it had any right to be, and who we will miss terribly (especially Ken). Long live ChaseDreams. #chasedreams #globsaregay #feet."

"From the moment we met the Dubek family, we knew that we needed to bring this show to streaming as one of our very first and most signature Max originals," added Suzanna Makkos, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Max. "We are so proud to have delivered a hilarious and poignant third and final season of The Other Two. With its creative and out-of-the-box commentary about the entertainment industry, Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider masterminded a staple in pop culture that continuously reached new heights and resonated with so many. While the series has come to its natural conclusion, we wish all the best for this wonderful cast and crew."

The comedy aired its first season on Comedy Central before becoming a HBO Max/Max original for its second and third seasons.
