It’s not just because Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash, Laurie Metcalf and Co. consistently brought tears to my eyes in the first two seasons of Getting On that the HBO show has become one of my longstanding favorites; there’s a plethora of reasons why Will Scheffer and Mark Olsen’s geriatric unit comedy wins over every other show ever (there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be Getting On!).
Now in its 3rd and final season we get 6 episodes more of the Billy Barnes Extended Care Unit (so YES: more Dr. James studies and likely samples of some sort of human debris) debuting this Sunday at 10pm.
Season 3’s first episode is called “This Is About Vomit, People”, so you know something ridiculously gross and terrible (so: hilarious) is bound to happen.
In case you haven’t caught on to the fact Getting On is the best hospital comedy on television since, well, ever, here’s what you need to know about the beloved Billy Barnes Extended Care Unit (still time to get caught up before Sunday!).
Season 3 of Getting On will premiere at 10pm on November 8th.
