Why Are We ‘Butthurt’ That ‘Workaholics’ Is Coming to An End?
The world will no longer be strange. After Season 7, which launches in January 2017, the cast of Workaholics has declared that the show would be canceled. Blake, Anders, and Adam started out as a sketch act called Mail Order Comedy, releasing somewhat successful YouTube videos until they were found by a Comedy Central executive and debuted Workaholics.
After The Roast of Donald Trump, a sneak peek premiere was aired in March 2011; it was a hit, and the first season premiered less than a month later. The trio of burnt-out telemarketers rapidly found their voice and exposed the world to a slew of obnoxious cliches.
The cast of Workaholics also honored their love for all substances, Entrapment’s star, and, of course, each other.
While most dirty comedies of this genre depict pals who vehemently dislike and insult each other for laughs, Ders, Adam, and Blazer are real brothers till the end.
Why Did It Come to An End?
So, why did Workaholics’ run on television come to an end? According to their statement, the show’s creators had a hand in how things ended.
The lads added in a statement, “We’d like to express our gratitude to Comedy Central, Doug Herzog, Kent Alterman, and all of the fans who helped us break up with Boyz II Men. We’ve opted to end on a high note after an extraordinary run. “Do you get it?”
Kent Alterman, the president of Comedy Central, would comment on the show’s conclusion, saying, “We were given far more years of stunted development than any of us could have imagined. We salute and thank the boys.”
Fans were understandably disappointed that the show they had been watching for years was coming to an end. Because of the framework set in season one, the programme developed a devoted fanbase, and as the season came to a close, viewers hoped to see the lads reunite for future projects.
The lads would reunite in 2018 for the film Game Over Man!, which was a Netflix initiative. Anders, Blake, Adam, and Kyle all played roles in the film, with Kyle also serving as the director. Even Seth Rogen joined the film’s production team as a producer. It didn’t earn rave reviews, but it was still fun to see for the fans.
Workaholics created a lasting influence on its audience, and it’s possible that the programme will be revived or turned into a miniseries in the future.
