Sad news for Nick Kroll fans: Kroll Show’s third season premieres on Comedy Central January 13th, and in a new interview with Vulture today, Kroll officially announced that the show will end after season 3. Kroll and Comedy Central hadn’t planned to end the show until, according to Kroll, “it just became clear that we wrapped up a lot of the stories and characters that we had created, and felt like we had brought a number of them to their natural conclusion. So, as opposed to stringing out more seasons, we wanted to feel like we were going out with the best work that we’ve done.”
Kroll also says he considered rebooting the show for its fourth season but ultimately decided against it because he didn’t want it to disappoint fans. Here’s what he had to say when asked how he hopes Kroll Show will be remembered:
I think the show is a very good summation of what I was interested in on TV and the kind of people that were interesting to me. One of the things I’m proud of is we never had an agenda of, We’re going to make fun of these kinds of people. It just organically occurred without too much of a preconceived idea. So it’s a good example of whatever has been in my head for the last three or four years. It seems weird to call it “pure” because most of it feels so disgusting.But I feel very lucky that I’ll be able to look at this show and be like, These are the people who I was friends with. I think people will look back at the show and see what an incredible cast and what a group of writers we had over the three seasons. My hope is that it’s like The Ben Stiller Show or Mr. Show, where people go on to become the most recognizable people in comedy.
