When Will 'Workaholics' Return For Season 7? There's Plenty To Watch While You Wait
Comedy Central’s bromantic show Workaholics is going the way of fellow cult comedies as it continues to be a hilarious, long-running TV series. The Workaholics Season 6 finale airs Thursday, March 17. Seriously, it’s been on for been 6 seasons! So, will Workaholics get a season 7?
According to Deadline, the show (starring Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, and Anders Holm) was simultaneously renewed in 2015 for both Seasons 6 and 7. And, while a 10-episode seventh season is confirmed, there is no official release date at this time. But, the previous three seasons have all aired in January, so that's a likely release time for Season 7.
Like all long-lasting, buddy shows, fans have started to speak the Workaholics language (which is pretty tight butthole) and enjoyed a revolving door of guest stars from Jack Black to Ben Stiller to Liam Hemsworth. With such a solid, funny previous six seasons, fans are already excited for 10 more episodes with their three favorite slackers. But, with some down time before Season 7, there are other TV crews that can help viewers fill the Workaholics void.
Here are nine cult comedies to watch while waiting for Workaholics to return. With TV friends like these, you’ll be adding some interesting new vocabulary to your speech in no time.
1. Broad City
If you love bawdy TV friendship that doesn’t pull punches when it comes to general gnarliness, then Broad City is your next TV addiction. You can stream Seasons 1 and 2 on Hulu.
Workaholics’ home girl, Jillian Bell, now has her own Comedy Central series, Idiotsitter. A Harvard grad (Charlotte Newhouse) thinks she landed a babysitting gig, when really it’s a job wrangling a criminal adult (Bell). Of course, an unlikely friendship full of raunchy twists and pratfalls is formed. Watch the first season, as it airs, on Comedy Central and Hulu.
3. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
If you love ensemble casts that take social topics head on, with both thought and depravity, then the It’s Always Sunny gang is right for you. Watch Seasons 1-10 on Netflix now.
Like Workaholics, Archer is also a workplace comedy with an intriguing cast of characters, though the misadventures have higher stakes (given that Archer is a spy) and, though it’s a cartoon, the sex jokes have a sexier landing. Stream Seasons 1-5 on Netflix.
5. The League
Like Workaholics, the show feels like a real group of friends hanging out. The shows strike a similar balance of improvisation and gross-out humor, that result in fans feeling like a part of the group’s inside jokes and debauchery. Watch six of the show’s seven seasons on Netflix instant watch.
6. Trailer Park Boys
The long-running Canadian series chronicles a trailer park’s cast of characters with Ricky, Bubbles, and Julian’s schemes and friendship as the series' anchor. The show is totally goofy, relaxed, and has the definition of a cult following with several films and specials that feel like an infinite amount of material. Watch the show in its nine-season entirety on Netflix, along with follow-up films and specials from 2006 to 2015.
7. Reno 911!
When it comes to watching a group of slackers in the workplace, who don’t know they’re slackers, nobody does it better than Reno 911! The farcical group of cops with a winding series of screw-ups and raunch is available to watch on Hulu.
8. Party Down
Party Down and Workaholics sort of have a similar take on life: Jobs pay the bills, people are unpredictable, misunderstandings happen, and almost nothing is off limits. Though, Party Down has a little more heart. Watch the two-season series on Hulu.
9. The Inbetweeners
Imagine the Workaholics guys in high school, more sex-obsessed (because high school), and British, and you would get a scenario that is basically The Inbetweeners. Stream the full series and two follow-up films on Netflix.
With all this content to watch, January and Season 7 will be here before you know it!
