The end is nigh for Rebecca Bunch and the West Covina crew. Showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses) posted a tearful selfie to Twitter last night with co-creator Rachel Bloom, taken as they wrote the final ever episode of their critically acclaimed musical Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Bloom retweeted to confirm the the first draft has indeed been written, which leaves us with only one question… how can we get our hands on that script?!?
Yep. First draft is finished. It was quite a day. https://t.co/nXY4L5Zd8k

There’s only 10 episodes left until the series is over, and in a show that’s given us jilted brides, an almost murder and that song about the buzzing in the bathroom, all bets are off on the final episodes. One thing we do know is that the gang finally got their dream of filming at Raging Waters, as confirmed last month by Blooms twitter.

What are you must excited to see in the last episodes, new songs, more Greg, grocery clerk with half an eyelid? Whatever it is, let us know in the comments below.
The last series of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returns on Friday 11th January on the CW in the US and Saturday 12th January on Netflix in the UK.
You have to admire Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) for wanting to deal with the repercussions of the very long string of decisions – good, bad and alarmingly questionable – that she’s made since she took flight from New York City and landed in West Covina three seasons ago. This year Rebecca is in some ways like a baby chick that’s about to tumble out of the nest and in other ways she’s that friend who is searching for enlightenment and kinda can’t stop yammering about it. As always, Rebecca’s actions have had unintended consequences for her West Covina friends — Nathaniel feels betrayed by her, Josh is taken aback by her, and Darryl is parenting her baby. Paula, Heather and Valencia remain staunchly by Rebecca’s side but they are busy finding their own identities (as a law student, regional manager and kickass party planner, respectively.) Will everyone be content to stay in the nest with Rebecca? Or will they start to transcend the sunbaked, boba-strewn purgatory that is West Covina? The answer to these and other questions lies in this season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend as themes of redemption, recovery, responsibility, rebirth, renewal and reality and other words that begin with “R” will bring our ultimate “R”, Rebecca, to the satisfying end of this chapter of her life. From CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television, CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND is executive produced by Rachel Bloom, along with Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada), Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man films), Erin Ehrlich (Awkward), Michael Hitchcock (Glee) and Sarah Caplan (Ray Donovan).
