Eichner weighed in on the show’s cancellation on Twitter late Tuesday:
Yes it’s true.
Right now, we’re in the “announcement of new film” phase, with Tuesday’s casting of Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in Allen’s upcoming untitled feature film. But that same morning, Hulu premiered the most savage takedown yet of not just Woody Allen’s modern day work as an auteur, but the cult of personality around him.
“Difficult People” in general and creator Julie Klausner in particular have never been shy about poking fun at certain topics the rest of Hollywood might consider taboo. Just consider the metric ton of jokes about Kevin Spacey’s sexuality
Why We're Obsessed With 'Difficult People'
The sassy sitcom that raises self-involvement to new comedic heights is back! Difficult People's Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner return for a third season on Hulu, alongside the rest of the cast, including Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak, and Gabourey Sidibe, plus an impressive array of guest stars: Stockard Channing, Tony Hale and Vanessa Williams! Meanwhile, the show will also welcome back Fred Armisen and scene-stealer Jackie Hoffman. During Et's chat on the phone with the cast, Cole Escola -- who is also returning to the series -- dished on his on-screen ex-wife Trish, who will be played by Williams. "I don't think that anything gets better than that," Escola says of Williams, teasing that "she was so game" for the show's antics

For one thing, there’s that name. Normally called D’s Café, the place has been taken over by Lola, an outspoken transgender waitress played by the bitingly funny Shakina Nayfack. “Lola saved us from Sephora,” Denise explains to the staff -- Billy, Lola, Denise, Nate and Matthew (Cole Escola), who has triumphantly returned from a Supermarket Sweep-turned-Scientology fiasco -- gathered around a table. But there’s
truTV released the first look at Sedaris’ upcoming domestic design show satire “At Home with Amy Sedaris” on Thursday, and it’s the kind of surreal you’d expect from a show with her name on it.
At first, what seems like a simple Martha Stewart-esque dissection of crafts materials and interior sprucing becomes a full-fledged musical number with a handy mnemonic for using glue on different surfaces. Krakowski even gets to show off her Broadway chops in the process.

John Cho has signed on to play a key recurring role in Season 3 of the Hulu comedy, the network announced Wednesday. Cho will appear in multiple episodes as Todd, an advertising executive who’s every bit as mean and twisted as Billy (Eichner) and Julie (Julie Klausner). In fact, Todd and Billy meet while one-upping each other in a prank war; they soon couple up, as Billy explores his first romantic relationship as an adult. (Well, “adult.”)

National Coming Out Day is observed on October 11th, the anniversary of the second March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, often referred to as “The Great March.” It is a celebration of what its founders called the most basic form of activism; standing up and being counted. On this day in 1991, “Bewitched” actor Dick Sargent came out on “The Geraldo Rivera Show.” This year, Kristen Stewart, Aubrey Plaza, Lilly Wachowski, Robin Lord Taylor and Holland Taylor all came out as some iteration of Lgbtq.
