When YOU’RE THE WORST kicks off its new season on FXX, Jimmy and Gretchen are adjusting, in their own way, to their recent cohabitation.

“I think both Jimmy and Gretchen go through periods of feeling good about living together, and also desperately wanting not to live together and annoying each other,” YOU’RE THE WORST star Aya Cash (Gretchen) shared. “I feel we hit about halfway through the season, [and then] we stop playing with the moving in cliches. There’s obviously some back and forth about ‘Where do I put my stuff?’ and ‘Whose schedule are we on?’ which I think is interesting, but you could do a whole season of that. And a lot of shows would. But I think [YOU’RE THE WORST creator] Stephen [Falk] and the writers have really pushed it forward, and moved into something deeper, and playing with something else…so you’re not just going to watch a whole season of, ‘Oh my God, they’re living together, here are the issues.'”

The show’s evolution was an important step for the writers — a fact the actors appreciated.

“I think it was really important for all of us not to change too much,” Chris Geere (Jimmy) acknowledged. “Stephen has this thing called ‘second seasonitis,’ [as] he calls it: you look at what worked last year and you try to recreate it. I think that’s important to avoid. And, thankfully, touch wood, we’ve all picked up from where we left last year, rather than trying to create a new show.”

One of the thing the show is leaning into? The fabulous chemistry between the whole cast.

While the new FX comedy, MARRIED, explores life for a couple who has been together for years, the network’s other new series, YOU’RE THE WORST, explores the very beginning of a relationship between two (occasionally terrible) people.

I went to the Los Angeles set of the wickedly funny comedy (which actually films on location in the city), and spoke with YOU’RE THE WORST stars Aya Cash (Gretchen) and Chris Geere (Jimmy) about their characters…
