Getting On Renewed for Third (and Final) Season at HBO

Dr. Jenna James will have a chance to get herself out of her self-imposed Medicare fraud scandal at Mount Palms Memorial Hospital — but she’ll have to act quickly.

HBO has renewed its dark comedy Getting On for a third and final season, TVLine has confirmed.

Based on the British series of the same name, Getting On — which stars Laurie Metcalf as the manic head of the hospital’s extended care unit, and Niecy Nash and Alex Borstein as her harried nurses — ended Season 2 with the women facing possible racketeering and anti-kickback proceedings in California Superior Court.

    I’m glad that it was renewed for a final season. I hope The Comeback gets renewed as well.

  4. Lillian Pena says:

    Our household is disappointed HBO had decided to cancel Getting On. We have doctors in the family and they think it’s hilarious … Hopefully a movie or something like it in the future.!

  5. Ben says:

    Niecy Nash deserves an Emmy for her role on Getting On.

    • Linzi Pruitt says:

      Fully agree! I love the entire cast, but Niecy Nash did an award winning job in her role!! I’ve always loved Laurie Metcalf and she was awesome in this, as well! I miss this show already and I just binge-watched the entire series. 😩

  6. Grey says:

    No word on The Comeback!?

  7. Teresa says:

    I absolutely love this show. Why end it so soon. Well I hope they give us more than six episodes this time. I mean six episodes count as a season?? Come on HBO!

  8. Tran says:

    It’s going to be a rough year for Laurie Metcalf and her other show The McCarthys (CBS) is still on the verge of cancellation.

  9. Ray says:

    Yes! I’m just thankful Getting On is coming back. Its such a little gem of a show.

  10. Steven says:

    Hoping they announce a renewal for Looking soon.

    I’m glad it’s coming back to close up the storyline, but I’m sad to see it go.

    Love this show! Very happy it’s returning but super sad HBO has decided to end it after one more season. Reconsider!

  16. Marilynn Dulude says:

    Getting On is just about the most brilliant show I have ever watched.Every actor is just so spot on with their character.Laurie Metcalf is truly amazing !!Can’t wait for new episodes.

  17. Barbara says:

    when and what time can it be seen on HBO?

  18. LaLonne says:

    There aren’t many shows that make me watch every episode as it comes on, and even watch the one’s I’ve seen every time they’re on when I flip on the TV – and I enjoy it just as much as the first time I saw it. I’m very deeply saddened to see this show ending. I adore every character on this show, and wish they would reconsider. The humor is the best!

  19. Robert says:

    I just watched the episode preceeding the finale and was very disappointed to find out that the series is ending. This is one of my all time favorite series. The series was funny and yet managed to elicit strong emotions. I will miss this series.

  20. Whitney says:

    Please renew Getting On for another season – one of the best scripted comedies on HBO

  21. Phyllis Tucker says:

    Finally, a show that we can fully relate to & it’s being cancelled? Why?? It is a perfect balance of story line & cast members. PLEASE reconsider.

  22. Phyllis Tucker says:

    Not only should this show be renewed but it should be 60 minutes long. That’s how good it is.

  23. Michael Murphy says:

    I’m very sad that getting on is ending it has been such an enlightening series 1 of HBO’s best maybe it will be resurrected someday or maybe a movie made about it

  24. bob says:

    Just watched the finale. What a great show and cast! Why, oh why HBO? We’re ratings really that bad? This is one of your best.

  25. dee says:

    I love this show. Why would they cancel it?

  26. Kate says:

    I discovered this show a few months ago and just now watched the series finale. I’m sad that there aren’t going to be any more episodes. It really was a funny show.

  27. AG says:

    I really didn’t know it was cancelled, I’ve been checking HBO constantly to see when new episodes return, so disappointed that it was cancelled, as a Nurse I found this show so entertaining can’t believe HBO cancelled this gem.
