Difficult People's short, fun run is over.
On Tuesday, Hulu canceled the Amy Poehler-produced comedy after three seasons and 28 episodes. The last original episode premiered in late September on the streaming service.
Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner play New York comedians and best friends also named Julie and Billy in the critically praised comedy, which featured a top-notch cast including Andrea Martin, John Cho, Cole Escola, Gabourey Sidibe, James Urbaniak and Jackie Hoffman.
The series didn't mind getting political, eagerly applying its satire in the age of Trump, and Julie and Billy, in one scene, dump trash on the car of a man looking for a new Donald Trump statue in New York.
Eichner, who has been appearing on FX's American Horror Story: Cult, tweeted thanks to Difficult People creator Klausner and the show's fans: "Thanks to many people but above all my friend @julieklausner. I cannot WAIT to see what Julie creates next. Thanks to all of you Difficult People out there who watched."
Difficult People's departure comes amid a comedic changing of the guard at Hulu. The Mindy Project ended its run after six seasons (the final three on Hulu) Tuesday, the same day that Seth Rogen's Future Man premiered on the streaming service. Paul Reiser's comedy, There's … Johnny, premieres Thursday.
