Crazy Ex-Girlfriend starts its fourth and final season this week on The CW, picking up where the third season ended. Rebecca Bunch, played by Rachel Bloom, is in court pleading “responsibility” (i.e. she’s guilty) for her actions in saving beau Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster) by pushing her crazy ex, creepy Trent Maddock (Paul Welsh), off a rooftop before he could commit murder. Facing a life of orange being her new black in a correctional facility, Rebecca is ready to face the consequences of her past actions head on. For Bloom, entering the show’s final season was bittersweet, and while the takeaway from a four-year network run is something she will cherish, it’s not something she wants to jump straight back into. “I could do another show that I was involved in the writing and acting of, but I could never do another network show,” she revealed during a recent chat with MediaVillage. “The hard part for me is doing it all at once, reading outlines and giving notes in the hair and makeup trailer in the morning, acting and in between editing ... I have to have a cable schedule next where I do one and one and one.
