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 that’s not a bad thing. And in fact, when I spoke with YOU’RE THE WORST’s Kether Donohue (Lindsay) on set, she made a case for why her character is truly the worst…
