Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 3 Spoilers

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Scoop: Season 3 Plays Like a 'Funny Fatal Attraction'

Hmmm, what’s that saying about “a woman scorned”?

After (singing and) dancing around its title for the first two seasons, The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is fully embracing it in Season 3 (debuting Friday, Oct. 13 at 9/8c) — and looking to an iconic spurned ex for inspiration.

Crazy Ex Girlfriend Season 3 Spoilers“If you thought this show was going to be ‘Funny Fatal Attraction,’ that’s what we’re going into this season,” star Rachel Bloom (Rebecca) promised at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday. And with good reason: Season 2 ended with Rebecca being left at the altar by the love of her life, Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), and subsequently vowing revenge. (She’s not going to be ignored, Josh!)

But she’s not exactly Glenn Close, either. “If Rebecca tried to boil a bunny, she would take the bunny and be like, ‘Oh, it’s so cute!’ And then a month later, she’d have, like, fifty bunnies,” co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna joked. “She’s not very good at being the femme fatale she would like to be.”

More Season 3 scoop from Wednesday’s panel:

* The season will kick off with a “Disney-style” opening number that features nearly the entire cast.

* Get ready for “the sexiest musical number we’ve ever done,” Bloom promised, adding that the choreography involves her “flinging her boobs around.”

* We’ll find out more about Rebecca’s BFF Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) and her background. “We see her parents, and go back to Buffalo,” Champlin teased. “You get more information as to who Paula is.”

* Season 3 gets a brand-new theme song and opening credits sequence directed by music-video veteran Joseph Kahn (who’s worked with Taylor Swift, Eminem and Britney Spears).

* Josh has his own personal crisis after he impulsively joined the priesthood in last season’s finale, Rodriguez says: “Josh is gonna hit a crossroads. How long does he really stick with anything?… What’s weird is that Rebecca is going to help facilitate that.” (Before destroying his life, we assume.)

    I hope that season 2 comes to Netflix soon!

  4. Erin B says:

    So excited for it, but I keep hoping they can bring Santino Fontana back even for one episode. I know his storyline wrapped up, but I miss him & his fabulous voice.

  5. Jake L. says:

    If they do get Santino Fontana back briefly, I would love to know what Greg thinks of Josh leaving Rebeca at the altar.

    I love this show so much and I’m down for whatever ride they take me on. Curious how Scott Foster’s character will evolve/be incorporated this season. He was a great addition IMO. I’d like to see more of Rebecca’s professional life. She’s so wacko in her personal life but she seems to be a great lawyer. Go figure!

    Seriously funny, fantastic little show. Hope more people watch seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix before season 3 starts. Even my husband watches and he hates musicals.
