Earlier this year, Workaholics aired its series finale on Comedy Central. Instead of going out with a bang or finally getting everything they've dreamed, it was pretty much a return to the status quo with drinking beers on the roof. It was a fitting and hilarious end to the show, but why end it in that specific way? CinemaBlend's own Nick Venable caught up with stars Adam DeVine and Blake Anderson for the recent DVD release of both the Workaholics: The Final Season and Workaholics: The Complete Series, and asked the duo about their finale. Instead of going big, the team decided to remain true to the show and focus on friendship, rather than fulfilling that tight butthole life.
It's true that some series tend to wrap up their runs by focusing on the plot or action while actually underserving what it is that people like about the show. Ultimately with Workaholics, the show is about friendship, as all the three guys have is each other (and an endless amount of ways to get high). So on that front, the finale certainly delivered as the guys chose to be friends over finally achieving some level of success.
In the series finale, "Party Gawds," Blake, Adam, and Ders were finally paid to live out the hedonistic lifestyle they've always fashioned themselves having. However, partying every single day is really destructive and it destroys each of them in a hilarious way that fits each of their personalities perfectly. So, they ultimately choose to abandon their "success," but let's be clear: these guys don't deserve any success. The stars feel the same way and they reiterate that really every episode is about reclaiming their friendship.
Even though the guys once again missed their chance at living their dream --and likely will forever -- at least they still have each other...and TelAmeriCorp. TelAmeriCorp is eternal.
Workaholics: The Final Season and Workaholics: The Complete Series released on DVD on June 20, 2017, and is now available for purchase. for more TV news, keep it right here at CinemaBlend and we'll keep you updated with new information as it becomes available.
