Tonight’s season finale of Legit will mark the FXX comedy’s final outing. Word came earlier today via star Jim Jefferies that FX Networks has decided not to pick up a third season of the raunchy comedy.
This season saw Jefferies pondering why he’s never had a relationship longer than six months; whether he’s a sex addict; and how to deal with an extended visit from his parents and his roommates’ dad, Walter, in an inspired performance by John Ratzenberger.
With responsibility also falling on Jim’s shoulders to cover for his roommate Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) – who has descended into alcoholism after losing his daughter to his ex-wife – Jim juggles his unnatural inclination to be a good guy with an overwhelming desire to take his career to the next level and rekindle a romance with his high school sweetheart. Meanwhile, Jim’s other roommate, Billy (DJ Qualls), faces an earth-shattering loss while adjusting to new muscular dystrophy medications and an unconventional romantic relationship.
