Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is an American romantic musical comedy-drama television series which premiered on October 12, 2015, on The CW. The series was created by Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna and stars Bloom in the lead role. It has a very unpredictable fast comedy style, much like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The songs are cleverly written and very good. The series has received many accolades from many awards shows like Primetime Emmy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, People’s Choice Awards and others. Bloom won a Golden Globe in 2016 for her leading role in the series and was nominated in the same category in 2017. The show has also won two Emmys for editing and choreography.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Cast: Who’s in it?
The lead star of the series Rachel Bloom (as Rebecca Nora Bunch, a lawyer originally from New York City) provides an energetic lead and the characters are hilarious. The other main casts are Vincent Rodriguez III (as Joshua “Josh” Felix Chan), Santino Fontana (as Greg Serrano, a smart but underachieving bartender and Josh’s best friend), Donna Lynne Champli (as Paula Proctor, Rebecca’s co-worker and new best friend), Pete Gardner (as Darryl Whitefeather, Rebecca’s sentimental, emotional and often clueless boss) and Vella Lovell (as Heather Davis, Rebecca’s “cool” college student neighbor, and later room-mate, who gives sage advice and discovers she has feelings for Greg). There are other recurring casts as well who too have done an amazing role in the series.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Plot: What is it about?
It is about a successful young female lawyer who gives up a promising job in a big N.Y. law firm and moves to California, in a small town, pursuing happiness with her first boyfriend who left her 10 years ago. The award-winning and critically loved musical comedy had always been on a four-chapter plan, according to creators Aline Brosh McKenna and Bloom. The first three seasons followed the first three chapters, so it makes sense that Season 4 was the fourth and final chapter, exactly how McKenna and Bloom planned from the start.
Towards the end of season 3, we see that Rebecca Bunch has pled guilty to attempted murder. Season 4 begins with her guilty plea being rejected by the presiding judge. A distraught Rebecca awaits trial after being sentenced to six weeks in jail where she is seen atoning for her wrongdoings. She begins to direct the theatre class but is rebuffed by the inmates who resent her for being voluntarily present. Paula is successful in getting Trent to confess and the state’s case against Rebecca is nullified. When Paula, Valencia, and Heather convey her the good news, she is hesitant to leave the jail. She eventually does. Nathaniel invites Rebecca a trip to Hawaii, but Rebecca refuses, saying she must provide legal advice to inmates which infuriate Nathaniel who then calls her selfish. The story picks off from there. Watch the show and find out how your beloved series ends.
