Another one of TV’s great comedies will come to an end on their terms.
Even with the series going way farther than the vast majority of comedies these days, series creator Armando Iannucci moving on to The Death of Stalin, and the Trump Administration giving the series a weird life-mirroring-art curveball, Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a second iconic role under her belt and showrunner David Mandel will be very likely going out in the best position possible.
“It became clear that this season should be the last season,” Louis-Dreyfus says. “We don’t want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series.”
