Next month Showcase will screen the final season of comedy favorite Getting On.
This season which consits of just six epiesodes started in the US a few weeks ago.
“The end is near” for the unconventional, lovable staff of the Billy Barnes Extended Care unit, as Getting On – the hilarious and poignant comedy from the creators of Big Love – returns for its third and final season. Set eight months after Season 2’s cliffhanger finale, the new episodes find Dr. Jenna James (Laurie Metcalf) determined to put the corporate-hospice scandal behind her, while pushing her research ambitions further than ever before. While Nurse DiDi (Niecy Nash) emerges as a union leader amidst a family drama that finds its way onto the ward, newly married Nurse Dawn (Alex Borstein) struggles to make sense of her new responsibilities and uncertain future, continuing to circle the orbit of male Supervising Nurse Patsy (Mel Rodriguez), who’s looking to embrace a new lifestyle. With all this playing out against the backdrop of Billy Barnes’ threatened demise, the fight to keep the ward (and hospital) alive brings in new blood and some familiar faces, eventually outing everybody’s dirty little secrets and ending in a series finale that is, literally, explosive!
Double Episodes of Getting On premiere Tuesdays at 7.30pm and 8.00pm from December 8 on showcase.
