Last summer, FX released the third season of the hit comedy series, “Dave”, a series that centres on a neurotic man in his late 20s who has convinced himself that he’s destined to be one of the best rappers of all time. Now he must convince his closest friends, because with their help, he actually might convince the world. Simultaneously exasperating and inspiring to his friends, he vows to leave no stone unturned on his quest to become the next superstar. 

Recently the show’s co-creator and title character, Dave Burd, who is also known by his stage name of Lil Dicky, confirmed to TVLine about how he’s not going to be working on any more episodes of “Dave”.

“Making Dave has been and continues to be a dream come true.  But there are other creative ventures that I am dying to pursue as well. For the past 5 years, I’ve poured every fiber of my being into the show, and after three amazing seasons, this feels like a good time to press pause to give myself the bandwidth to do some of the other things I have always wanted to do. I am beyond excited about what I have planned for the future and am enormously appreciative of FX for their continued partnership.”

The series also stars GaTa as “GaTa;” Andrew Santino as “Mike;” Taylor Misiak as “Ally;” Travis Bennett as “Elz” and Christine Ko as “Emma.”

“Dave” is co-created by Dave Burd and Jeff Schaffer, who are both executive producers with Luvh Rakhe, Vanessa McGee, Kris Eber, Rob Rosell, Kevin Hart and Hartbeat Productions, Scooter Braun, Marty Bowen, Mike Hertz and SB Projects’ James Shin and Scott Manson.

The series is produced by FX Productions, who said in a statement about future seasons of “Dave”:

“After some back and forth, there are no current plans for a fourth season of Dave right now, as Dave Burd has decided to take an extended break to focus on music and other ventures.  That does not rule out the possibility of doing something in the future. We love the show and sincerely appreciate the creative excellence Dave, Jeff Schaffer, the cast and crew delivered with every episode. We are excited that our partnership with Dave will continue as he develops future projects for us through his overall production deal with FXP.”

With Disney drastically cutting back on how much content it creates for its linear and streaming channels, it’s not a huge surprise to see that work on a fourth season isn’t going to continue, for now.  And that’s a key difference with this renewal; it’s not a typical cancellation, where the show just never returns and there is radio silence from the studio over the project’s future. 

The door does seem wide open for potential future seasons or other projects since Dave is still in an overall deal with FX.  However, as time goes on, that overall deal will expire, and the desire for future seasons or projects may dim from either side. 

The previous three seasons of “Dave” are available to stream now on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries around the world.
