Wilfred Renewed for Fourth and Final Season – But There's a Twist (Hint: It's Moving!)

Get More: Cancellations, News

WilfredWilfred will sit, but it won’t stay.

FX Networks on Wednesday renewed the surreal, canine comedy for a fourth season, which will also be its last.

Though Wilfred now airs on FX, it will move to new sister network FXX for the final, 10-episode run.

The show’s writer/producers Reed Agnew and Eli Jorné took over as co-showrunners in Season 3, which ended in September. Agnew and Jorné replaced former Wilfred boss David Zuckerman, who stayed with the dark comedy as an executive producer.

  • Well at least they have a season to wrap things up. This is one show I’m definitely more interested in the destination than the journey, for better or worse

    • Agreed but I’m still dissapointed. It’s gotten so funny this season, I was hoping for at least another 2 :(

  • That’s great news for Wifred fans who subscribe to very expensive sports packages (which is what many cable companies have done with FXX due to it replacing Fox Soccer).

    • I have a pretty basic cable setup and I get fxx.

  • This sucks. I have no interest in FXX, but I will have to buy it to watch these shows.

    Oh, wait, no I won’t. I will download it, free, on line.

  • So, the twist isn’t they’re going to split the final fourth season so 5 episodes play in 2014 and another 5 play in 2015?

    • This is bittersweet. Glad it was renewed, but the final season part is a bummer. Still, I’m glad they were given a chance to wrap things up.

  • I loved the first season and the second season was ok. The third season was so so and the ending was rather dark. I’m glad they get to wrap things up.

    Comment by JWB – October 2, 2013 04:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agreed. I think it’s a perfect time to wrap it all up. Any longer and Wilfred will have overstayed his welcome.

    • its a dark comedy, thats the whole basis of the show. even back in the Australian version

  • I’ve been following since the beginning, and I am glad they get to wrap everything up. I wish it was 11 episodes, so they could reach 50 episodes.

  • Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster! I was so nervous it wouldn’t get renewed when I saw the numbers. But this is the best scenario.

  • Nooooo don’t take away my Wilfred!!! Please continue making the episodes.

  • Ending after just 4 seasons??? Kill me. I love this show! This news makes me pretty sad.

  • Sad it’s going to end after just 4 seasons, I really like this show! But at least it will get a proper conclusion since the ending is planned in advance. Looking forward to the final set of episodes.

  • Ten years from now, these 49 shows will be classics, watched over and over and adored by new generations that wonder, “Why the heck did they only make four seasons?”

  • I got scared there for a second and thought Season 3 was it. At least I finally get to know what Wilfred is…or will I?

  • I am so terribly sad to read about this now, did a search for season 4 and just wanted to see when the new season was going to be out. I never thought they would cancel Wilfred I mean Elijah Wood is bloody brilliant in the show and I thought the show was striving. Damn my blatant ignorance… Oh well agree with everyone else atleast they will be able to wrap it up after a great series. If anyone needs more Wilfred I highly suggest downloading the original off of your preferred bittorrent. It has some different elements such as other animals that are humans in costume and Wilfred’s relationship with Bear. Wilfred was a truly a marvel and I hate to see it go but let’s hope the last season gives us something to cheer about.

    • it was a great tv program to get stoned to, going to be a classic

  • No! No! No!…this is my favorite show :( im glad it gets to premier a new season but it cant be its last. This show always made my day. It was one of the main reasons I watched television. Im very upset. Hopefully more will be explained…Wilfreds legacy will always live on!

  • WHY is Wilfred being cancelled??? I didn’t expect this, I just wanted to see when the new season would start. Wow, please no :(( WHYyYy?? Wilfred has been brilliant!!

    • You may have found this out already, but that article headline was very misleading. The show was never “cancelled”, simply moved over to FXX, the FX network’s new comedy-centric channel. And the original series (in Australia) was 4 seasons, so I think we’ve been over-reaching to expect the creator (who did the original, as well) to do a longer show just for American audiences. I can’t wait for the new season and to hopefully get some real answers, and hope this was at least a bit of an uplift for you!

      • I’m pretty sure it’s cancelled as I just saw a commercial for “the last season of Wilfred” on FXX.

  • Watch the australian original version. soo much funnier

    • Its got the same actor (jason Gann) as wilfred

  • I think that it is ok that they are ending it, too often classic shows like this are ruined by going on too long

  • Ah, its a shame that shows like this cant go on forever, but if they did it would just spawn dependencies that arent healthy. The ability to adapt is what defines us as human beings. I hate to see Wilfred go, but I have the happiness he brought me and the optimism to look forward to the next great show.

  • Wilfred is my absolute favorite show! So sad that it is ending so soon.

  • Absolutely hilarious show, sad it’s ending. They shouldn’t base their decisions solely on ratings a lot of people just watch it free online or on netflix.

  • So what exactly is the twist???

  • I can’t believe it’s ending it’s my FAV show ever I just love it FX finally did something right and they are going to let it go?

  • I LOVED The US Version of Wilfred (Not saying that the UK one was bad, but I like the Dynamic between Jason Gann & Elijah Wood. I do have an affinity for Elijah, Lol). It is a little saddening to hear that this will be the final season, I do have to agree somewhat with what the others said; You don’t want Wilfred overstaying his welcome, but I feel they could still do like 2 more good seasons after this one. The show was SO deep with their little quotes that had to do with the overall plot of each episode. I truly feel that the show made me learn some rather valuable life lessons… Like how to make a bong out of a Gatorade bottle. Jk jk it REALLY did give my many moments of reflection, but at the end of the day I am just happy that they are getting to wrap it up and not leaving it forever canceled with the rest of the Television greats! (Oh Firefly, you are still mourned every day) No onthe side of me that is a HUGE fan, what I’d LOVE to see is a Wilfred MOVIE where they go on ONE FINAL JOURNY to find out who/what Wilfred really is.

    • It’s Australian, not from the UK!

  • Who was that person that commented that Wilfred is a terrible show? Was that the TT from Reno 911?

  • Gutted! Love this show! Not like anything else on the tele.

  • Freaking love this show and I’m highly irritated it’s being canceled. One of the only shows I like Bc I don’t watch very much tv. Ugh!!!

  • I am bummed it only has one more season and it’s moving to a channel I don’t get on Dish Network with my package. Why would they move it to another channel ? I hate when networks do this to get more money out of you. I will just watch for it and see if I can find it online.
