In a move that's sure to leave the titular dog wagging his tail (hopefully not while he's being perceived in human form, as that would just be creepy), FX has renewed its oddball comedy 'Wilfred' for a fourth season of 10 episodes.
While that news will surely please fans, it does come with a few caveats. For one, the show will be leaving its FX home, and hopping over to new sister channel FXX. So viewers will need to make sure that they update their DVRs accordingly. Secondly, this batch of episodes will be the last. Yep, the fourth season will also be the final season.
Based on an Australian series of the same name, 'Wilfred' stars Elijah Wood as Ryan Newman, a down on his luck former attorney that attempts suicide in the very first episode. Following the attempt, Ryan is entrusted with the care of his neighbor's dog Wilfred. The catch is that Ryan sees Wilfred as a grown man in a dog costume, and can speak to him and understand his responses. Naturally, this odd situation leads to all kinds of wacky complications for Ryan's day-to-day life.
Wilfred is played by series co-creator Jason Gann, who also played the role in the original Australian version. The series has attracted some terrific guest starring talent over the course of its American run, including names like Mary Steenburgen, Allison Mack, Steven Weber, Rob Riggle, and James Remar, just to name a few.
Are you ready to bid farewell to Wilfred?
