DESCRIPTION: (from Pivot's press release, July 2015) Pivot announced today that the highly anticipated season three of Participant Media's award-winning scripted comedy "Please Like Me," premieres on Friday, October 16 at 10 p.m. ET. The charming, semi-autobiographical series, inspired by Josh Thomas' standup comedy and real-life experiences, has been described by critics as "'Seinfeld' blended with a guy-centric 'Girls'" (Associated Press). Creator, writer, and star of the show, Thomas extends his talent this season by taking a seat in the director's chair for the first time, making him a quadruple threat. With 10 all-new half-hour installments, viewers will get another glimpse into Josh's hilariously dark and dysfunctional world. Joining the new season is actress Emily Barclay (Light Between Oceans, Suburban Mayhem), who portrays Ella, Tom's (Thomas Ward) new love interest. Original cast members reprising their roles for season three alongside Thomas and Ward are Caitlin Stasey (Claire), Hannah Gadsby (Hannah), Keegan Joyce (Arnold), Debra Lawrance in her AACTA Award-winning role of Mum, David Roberts (Dad), Renee Lim (Mae) and, arguably the show's biggest star, Josh's dog, John.
