Shrill‘s swan song will unspool this spring, when the Hulu comedy’s third and final season premieres on Friday, May 7 with all eight episodes, our sister site Variety reports.
Star/executive producer Aidy Bryant tells the site that in the upcoming installments, “Annie ends up in a place where hopefully a lot of people end up if they have a reckoning with their own self-hatred and those kinds of things, where it’s like, ‘OK, I have a better handle on this when it started. Does it still rear its ugly head and punch me in the face sometimes? Absolutely, but now I know how to cope with it.'”
“Part of what this season is is just realizing that there is no end for people who are looking to find their own self-confidence. It is a constant, everyday thing. There isn’t a final, ‘She wins’ or ‘she loses,'” Bryant continues.
