Beverly Hills, CA -- After singing and dancing her way through three years of The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rebecca Bunch is delivering her swan song in the show’s fourth and final season, which begins in October. Since debuting in 2015, Crazy Exhas garnered critical acclaim and a slew of awards. But as brilliant as the series is, it has largely floundered in the ratings and remained “the little show that could,” and it has become something of a streaming sensation. Full credit must be given to The CW for remaining vigilant in its support of and belief in the show, saving it from cancellation and allowing series co-creator and star Rachel Bloom to give the series the fitting send-off it deserves. Envisioned as a four-act play, Bloom is thrilled Rebecca’s story will be told in its totality. “As a television fan, I like it when shows have a clear plan and a clear ending,” Bloom told reporters at the Summer 2018 Television Critics Association Tour. “I feel like a lot of shows get successful, and they want to continue for as long as possible. Then, for a fan, it's a bummer because you can feel the show kind of peter out.
