Hulu is giving one of its first original scripted shows a final season, with the announcement of a fourth and final season for Casual.
Casual, from director Jason Reitman, creator Zander Lehmann and showrunner Liz Tigelaar, was one of the first original series to launch on Hulu in October 2015 as the service was beginning its transformation from a place for low-cost original series, mostly comedy, to a premium content destination. It was among the first TV series to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival as part of its first Primetime TV lineup in September 2015.
Casual centers on Valerie (Michaela Watkins), a newly divorced single mother living with her brother Alex (Tommy Dewey) and her daughter Laura (Tara Lynne Barr). Frances Conroy and Nyasha Hatendi co-star on the show, whose first season consisted of 10 episodes, Seasons 2 and 3 of 12 episodes each.
The eight episode season 4 will air sometime in 2018.
