First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Or: Guy gets girl. Guy loses girl. Guy gets girl back. Did anyone else’s eyes just roll so back into their head they got stuck that way? These tropes are seriously tired. Which is why Love on Netflix, a down-to-Earth romantic comedy about modern dating, is so freaking refreshing. While the second season of the show will hit the streaming platform in full on Friday, March 10, fans are already curious about more episodes. Will Netflix’s Love return for Season 3? Thankfully, it's a yes.
Before Season 2 even dropped, news had already broken that the romantic comedy had been renewed for a third season. According to Deadline, Netflix renewed Love, starring Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs, back in February. While a Season 3 premiere date has not yet been announced, the show, co-created and written by Rust, Judd Apatow, and Lesley Arfin, will likely return in spring 2018, based on previous February and March premiere dates. Which means that fans will have to wait a year for more episodes.
Let's be real, we could pace ourselves with Season 2 in order to make the series last longer. But we won't. We get all of the episodes in one batch on a Friday, which means by Sunday they'll all be consumed. So, what can fans do to kill time between seasons? Try catching up with the stars' other shows. Here are all of the series you should watch before Love Season 3 if you're a fan of the series' cast and Apatow.
Jacobs was super memorable as Adam's mega intimidating new girlfriend Mimi-Rose Howard on Girls. The HBO series is also produced by Love co-creator Apatow. Watch Girls on HBO's streaming platforms and Seasons 1 and 2 on Amazon Prime.
Jacobs starred as Britta on the NBC cult comedy. Watch the full series on Hulu.
'Freaks And Geeks'
The one-season NBC Apatow series gained cult status thanks to its DVD and Netflix releases. Plus it stars baby James Franco, Jason Segel, Seth Rogen, Martin Starr, and Linda Cardellini. Watch its only season on Netflix.
Apatow's new HBO show Crashing premiered in February. The series is available on HBO's streaming platforms.
Rust hilariously voices Tina's crush at the sandwich shop Jonas. While the character is only recurring, Bob's Burgers is worth the watch. Seasons 1 through 5 are available on Netflix.
