“Workaholics” final season starts in January

It's so hard, to say goodbye, to yesterday

Comedy Central’s “Workaholics” series is calling it quits, ending with season seven. Over the last six seasons fans have watched co-workers and roommates “Adam,” “Blake” and “Ders” survive their humdrum job at TelAmeriCorp with pranks, drugs, and relentless attempts at proving how cool they are, but now their days are numbered.

The show has been one of Comedy Central’s most popular scripted-series, and the seventh and final season will premiere on January 11, 2017. The final season will include ten all-new episodes, and the network will follow the show with the all-new animated series, “Jeff & Some Aliens” at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

In their final season, the guys along with TelAmeriCorp officemates “Jillian” (Jillian Bell) “Alice” (Maribeth Monroe) and “Montez” (Erik Griffin), and their friend “Karl” (Kyle Newacheck, creator and director), battle a group of trainees for the title of main office pranksters, throw their own version of Coachella to impress a group of festival girls, make the most of the TelAmericCorp beachside timeshare and look back on the time when they all competed together on a reality TV dating show; special guest appearances include Nina Dobrev and Dennis Quaid.

“Workaholics” is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. The network details the show saying, “Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day…even if they don’t know what day it is.”

“Workaholics” was co-created by Mail Order Comedy’s Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck. The series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck. Executive Producers include Mail Order Comedy, Kevin Etten, John Quaintance, Avalon Television’s Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin, Jon Thoday and Isaac Horne. Jim Sharp and Rachel Olson are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
