Earlier today the FX Networks announced that it has moved forward with airing the surreal comedy ‘Wilfred’ for a fourth, and final, season. The series will consist of 10 final episodes. The series itself was an adaptation of the Jason Gann and Adam Zwar’s Australian comedy also named ‘Wilfred’. The series will join ‘The League’ and ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ on the new FXX network.
Wood stars as “Ryan,” an introvert who struggles to find social and professional happiness, until he meets “Wilfred” (played by Gann), who Zuckerman describes as part Australian Shepherd, part Russell Crowe on a bender. The world sees Wilfred as a dog; Ryan sees Wilfred as a man dressed in a dog suit. Wilfred is Ryan’s alter-ego intent on pushing Ryan out of his shell. Fiona Gublemann (Californication) co-stars as “Jenna,” Ryan’s attractive next door neighbor and owner of Wilfred. Wifred marks Wood’s first starring role in regular series television. Gann co-created and played the title character in the Australian version of Wilfred.
