Better Things is coming back for Season 5 next year, and its next chapter will also serve as its swan song. The critically acclaimed FX comedy is set to come to an end after five seasons on the air.

Better Things was created by Pamela Adlon, who also takes the lead role as Sam Fox, a Hollywood actress and a single mom raising three daughters in Los Angeles, as she juggles her professional commitments. In addition to Adlon, the series also stars Mikey Madison, Hannah Alligood, Olivia Edward, and Celia Imrie.

In an official statement announcing the show’s final season, Adlon said she’ll be forever grateful to FX for allowing her to tell stories the way she sees the world and wants the world to be seen. “Making this show has been film school for me. I bow down to my crew and my cast. And I can’t wait for people to discover and re-discover Better Things. This is gonna be a wrap on Sam Fox (for now). See you at the after-party,” Adlon told Deadline.

Season 5 of Better Things still doesn’t have a release date, but it’s expected to premiere in 2022.
