All good things must come to an end. After two critically acclaimed seasons, the Hulu comedy Shrill is ending its run with a third final season. The show followed self pro-claimed “fat girl” and Portland resident Annie (Aidy Bryant) as she embraced her body and gained confidence in all areas of her life.
In the third season trailer, which dropped yesterday, Annie is single, ready to mingle, and about to reach her full potential.
Last season Annie cut ties with her deadbeat boyfriend Ryan (Luka Jones), after finally getting the confidence to leave him. This season Annie will deal with fat bias from a medical professional, budget cuts, and getting cancelled. It also looks like Fran (Lolly Adefope), Annie’s roommate and best friend, will finally introduce her partner Emily (E.R. Fightmaster) to her mother while also expanding her career horizons.
The Shrill trailer also revealed that SNL alum and Portland super fan Fred Armisen will appear in one or some of the episodes. Mind Hunter and Umbrella Academy star Cameron Britton joins the show as one of Annie’s potential beaus. Patti Harrison, John Cameron Mitchell, Ian Owens, and Jo Firestone will all reprise their roles as Annie’s coworkers.
The final season of Shrill will air on May 7 on Hulu.
