I am sorry to deliver what is perhaps the most loose butthole news of the day/week/month/year. The world will soon have to figure out what it takes to once again live without the TelAmeriCorp gang in our lives, as it's been announced Workaholics is coming to an end on Comedy Central. But don't go sending Waymond any hatemail or anything, as we will still be getting a seventh and final season out of the trio at the center of the show. And there's a small reason to keep hope alive for something in the future.
News of Workaholics' windup might not come as a surprise to hardcore fans who keep up with the trials and tribulations of creators and actors Adam DeVine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson, as they have talked in the past about possibly making Season 7 the last one for Workaholics. It's a total bummer, and one would have hoped that everyone could have agreed on putting more out there, but the upcoming ten episodes will likely be the last we'll see. Fingers crossed they've pulled out all the stops and punched a couple of new holes when it comes to this last batch of stories. According to Deadline, the official statement said they "decided to leave on a HIGH note. Get it?" Ah, those guys.
Now, I think it's pretty important to mention, especially in today's television climate, that Workaholics was not cancelled by Comedy Central by any means. The decision to end the show was made by Adam DeVine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson, along with co-creator and episode helmer Kyle Newacheck. TV shows never HAVE to die anymore, and these guys have been working together for so long - they started up the comedy troupe Mail Order Comedy in 2006, which later led to the show getting picked up - that it's hard to imagine they'll never ever ever wear their TelAmeriCorp shirts and ties again. After all, they're best friends, like, for real.
Season 7 went into production not too long ago, and we already got our first bit of great news about it earlier today, just before we got the worst news. One guest star viewers can look forward to seeing is former Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, and it'll be her first TV role following her exit of that CW drama. We're betting more big names are coming, too, since Workaholics excels in the guest star department. For instance, last season's wild premiere featured the stellar guest trifecta of Liam Hemsworth, Dane Cook and Pauly Shore. I think I'll go watch that episode again in a minute.
As far as what else we can expect to see from Workaholics' threesome outside of Comedy Central, the biggest project is the troupe's action comedy movie Game Over, Man!, which has been described by the group as "Die Hard with a twist." Adam DeVine is keeping his big screen career going strong with the comedies Why Him? (with Bryan Cranston and James Franco) and When We First Met (with Alexandra Daddario and Robbie Amell). Blake Anderson is doing voice work on various animated shows, such as Voltron: Legendary Defender. Anders Holm will star in the hilarious Judy Greer's directorial debut A Happening of Monumental Proportions, which also stars Allison Janney and Katie Holmes.
No release date has been set just yet for the seventh and final season of Workaholics, but it's coming in the earlier part of 2017. To see everything else you'll be able to find making winter debuts, check out our midseason TV schedule.
