On Wednesday, Netflix announced that Love, an L.A.-centric and exquisitely dark rom-com, has been renewed for a third season.

The series was created by Girls alum Lesley Arfin and her husband, writer-actor Paul Rust, along with producer Judd Apatow. Rust stars in the show opposite Community's Gillian Jacobs—the two play thirtysomething love interests in a shambling deconstruction of modern courtship. According to FastCoCreate, Arfin and Rust were actually planning their own wedding during production on the first season of Love, "which they created partly based on their own relationship."

Arfin, a high priestess of hot mess heroines, first made her name writing the now-defunct "Dear Diary" column for Vice (and later, a confessional memoir of the same title).

The first 10-episode season of the series premiered on February 19, 2016, and today's announcement comes ahead of the premiere of season two, which is set for March 10, 2017. Netflix had originally greenlit the series in 2014 with a two-season, straight-to-pick-up order, showing what Deadline described as "a commitment reserved for top packages from A-list auspices."
