Last season of “Catastrophe
” saw everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed couple in a pretty depressing state. Rob’s (Rob Delaney
) workplace flirtation took a vicious turn and he ended up losing his job. And Sharon (Sharon Horgan
) may or may not have slept with another man — but she definitely got blackout drunk on a revenge bender. Luckily, a trailer for Season 3 of the romantic comedy with claws reveals that these two aren’t done with each other quite yet.
After blaming her bad behavior on Brexit and Trump, a contrite Sharon offers to sleep on the couch while she and Rob sort things out. “Or we could sleep in the same bed,” she says, “but just, you know, head to toe?”

Working on their marriage isn’t the only obstacle the two will face in the upcoming season of the series, which Horgan and Delaney co-created. The trailer gives us a glimpse of Carrie Fisher
