First looks at upcoming premieres such as Y: The Last Man and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Stories, a new anthology series comprised of episodes that tell self-contained stories, can be seen in a recent FX trailer highlighting the fact that all of the channel’s shows can be found on Hulu, which was released recently. Although FX’s schedule is expanding, the network is not neglecting its core programming, as evidenced by the fact that the dramedy Better Things has been renewed for a fifth season, which will premiere shortly after season 4 concludes in 2020 (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Better Things Season 5 plot
At the conclusion of Better Things season 4, Sam and her ex-husband Xander come to the end of their tumultuous relationship and start anew. Xander had expected Sam to pay him that month’s alimony, but she instead writes him a check for the entire amount of money she owes him, having taken out a loan to do so in order to do so. Sam just wants to move on from this period of her life and forgive her ex-boyfriend for the sake of her own mental health. As Sam made one final jab at Xander before the season ended, it is likely that Better Things season 5 will continue to explore their relationship even more in depth.
In addition, Sam’s eldest daughter Max, who recently started working at a restaurant, experienced a change of scenery in the season 4 finale. As a result of Sam’s desire for Max to move out on her own, there has been some tension in their relationship recently, and season 5 may also focus on Max as she begins to forge her own path as an adult, according to Deadline.
Regardless of the direction Better Things season 5 takes, it will undoubtedly be equally hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure. Considering how well the show has done in all of its previous seasons, there will be high expectations for the upcoming season’s episodes as well. Better Things has the potential to live up to that standard if there is any show that can.
