As a rule, the low ratings indicate the soon cancellation of any show on TV, excepting Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, the romantic comedy, which survived one more round on the CW. The network has just announced that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend would return for its fourth installment in the 2018-2019 broadcast season. However, it seems that the upcoming season would be the last. Though Crazy Ex-Girlfriend can’t boast with the impressive figures, the current season premiere has gained 25% more viewers versus its predecessor. It was, undoubtedly, a signal for The CW that this show deserves renewal. Finally, on April 2, 2018, the exciting announcement appeared on the official Twitter page of the series.
Indeed, the current season was a success for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The season premiere has garnered 0.624 million viewers with a 0.22 demo rating among adults 18-49. Although these statistics don’t look overwhelming, we could take into account that the last season premiere has drawn only 0.53 million viewers. In his decision, The CW’s boss, Mark Pedowitz, referred to the series’ critical acclaim. Besides, he claims that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend positively affects the image of The CW.
If we take a look at the response from critics and viewers, it was stunning. On Rotten Tomatoes, the current season of the romantic comedy holds a score of 8.86/10 and a 95% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the third installment of the show at 4.5/5/90%. We oversee almost the same data on Metacritic, 7.9/10 among the viewers. An overall score of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on IMDb is 7.7/10 > 10,500 votes.
Summing up, it was entirely expectable that The CW is about to renew Crazy Ex-Girlfriend for another round despite the weak ratings. The network’s heads mainly paid attention to the reception from the target audience. However, it would be the last chapter of the comedy-drama series. Rachel Bloom announced on her official Twitter page that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend had been renewed for a final season. Of course, this is sad news for all the fans.
