VOD News | On 16, Dec 2017
Netflix’s Love will return for a third and final season next March.
The romantic comedy, co-created by Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin, Trainwreck), Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Awkward) and Paul Rust (Arrested Development), first premiered back in 2016, with Netflix ordering a sophomore run immediately. When Season 2 arrived this year, the streaming giant had again already ordered a third season. Now, Netflix has confirmed that this upcoming run will be the show’s last.
Will they? Won’t they? Should they? Season 3 will continue to follow the trials and tribulations of Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus’s (Rust).
“I am really excited about the third season of Love. I think it is our sweetest, funniest season and ends our story in a beautiful way,” says series co-creator and executive producer Judd Apatow.
“We couldn’t have hoped for better companions to go on this journey of Love with than the incomparable Judd Apatow, Gillian Jacobs, Paul Rust, Lesley Arfin and the rest of the fantastic cast and crew who have brought this special series to life. Over three seasons, viewers around the world have laughed, cringed, and cried with Mickey and Gus, and we are excited to share this concluding journey with their fans,” adds Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Series.
Love Season 3 will premiere globally on Netflix on 9th March 2018.
Kathy Baker and Kyle Bornheimer join Love Season 3
23rd June 2017
Kathy Baker and Kyle Bornheimer have joined the cast for Season 3 of Netflix’s Love.
The romantic comedy, co-created by Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin, Trainwreck), Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Awkward) and Paul Rust (Arrested Development), premiered its second season this year, reuniting us with the awkward, painful, embarrassing romantic entanglements of Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Rust). The show’s sophomore outing saw the couple face commitment and all that comes with it as they attempt to bring order to their chaotic lives.
Before Season 2 had even been released, though, Netflix had already ordered Season 3. And, judging by their latest casting additions, Apatow and Arfin are looking to explore Gus’ family, after we met Mickey’s dad in Season 2.
Baker will play Vicki, Gus’ mother, with Bornheimer set to portray Ken, Gus’ older brother. Both actors will be recurring stars in the third season, reports Deadline. Baker is no stranger to Netflix, currently appearing in Netflix’s sitcom The Ranch, while Bornheimer will be recognised by fans of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as Teddy Wells.

Netflix orders third season of Love
10th February 2017
Netflix has ordered a third helping of Love.
Judd Apatow’s series was given a two-season commission when it was first ordered by the streaming giant. Co-created by the Knocked Up director, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Lesley Arfin and Arrested Development’s Paul Rust, it follows the complex romance between Gus (Rust) and Mickey (Gillian Jacobs), two people trying to find their way through life on the East Side.
Now, just as we prepare for Season 2 to land on Friday 10th March, Netflix has already renewed the programme for a third run.
The announcement was made by Netflix at a press event in New York this week, outlining its plans for the year ahead. The streaming giant was all about love in its various forms, as it argued that they weren’t trying to create a one-size-fits-all network, but a library of titles to meet different audiences with different tastes.
“The beautiful thing about the internet is that it has ushered in a new era of television centered on delivering the best possible experience to millions of people around the world – with the singular goal of connecting people with stories they’ll love,” said Todd Yellin, Vice President of Product. “Human beings have incredibly diverse and unique tastes – each person is more than the demographic group they belong to. At Netflix, we not only have a catalogue that meets the needs of these tastes and moods, but we use our technology to ensure we surface the right story to the right person at the right moment.”
Netflix’s Love will return for second season this March
27th January 2017
Judd Apatow’s Netflix series, Love, will return for Season 2 this March.
The show, which is co-created by the Knocked Up director, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Lesley Arfin and Arrested Development’s Paul Rust, follows the complex romance between Gus (Rust) and Mickey (Gillian Jacobs), two people trying to find their way through life on the East Side.
“An unflinching take on love that has a spiky honesty – it’s less a will-they-won’t-they and more a why-on-earth-would-they,” we wrote in our review of Season 1. “The result is a perfect match for Apatow, whose wayward pacing has always been a problem on the big-screen. Given more of a leash to explore his characters’ emotions, he, Arfin and Rust produce something that is deceptively engaging and nuanced, presuming, of course, you can overcome the initial obstacles – this is, rather aptly, a series that requires commitment to get the most out of it… The more time you spend with Love, the more you like it.”
Now, we know that we’ll get to spend even more time with the pair, as Season 2 will premiere on 10th March. The show’s second run will see Mickey and Gus face commitment and all that comes with it, as they attempt to bring order to their chaotic lives, says the official synopsis.
Here’s a teaser for the new season’s release:

5th January 2016
Judd Apatow’s Love will land on Netflix in February.
The 10-episode series, from the man behind Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, follows nice guy Gus (Paul Rust) and brazen wild-child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, love and other things they were hoping to avoid.
Lesley Arfin has exec produced and written the show, alongside Rust and Apatow, with Brent Forrester and Dean Holland also serving as executive producers.
The half-hour comedy series, produced by Apatow Productions and Legendary Television, promises to offer “an unflinching, hilarious and excruciatingly honest take on modern relationships”.
The streaming service is clearly confident in the show: the VOD giant has already ordered a second season of Love, with a further 12 episodes to be released in 2017.
The whole of Season 1 will be released on Friday 19th February 2016. Here’s the first teaser for the show, with a first-look image above.
