After just two seasons, Josh Thomas has announced his hit show Everything’s Gonna Be Okay is coming to an end.
The news came as a surprise today when he made the announcement on social media.
Everything’s Gonna Be Okay has been praised for both queer and autistic representation in the media.
In 2021 the program was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
“This show has been such a special experience”
In a relatively short and simple statement, Josh Thomas took the time to thank those involved with the production.
“I want to send an extra super special thanks to our cast, writers and crew who are talented, kind and passionate,” the star wrote.
Whilst he did not give specific reasons for the end of the series it’s likely the current Covid crisis played its part.
The first season was released at the beginning of 2020 and filming continued to take place for season two as the crisis continued, which Thomas acknowledged.
“We made the second season at the peak of the pandemic and everyone did such a beautiful job of keeping each other safe and happy and sometimes dancing.” He gushed.
In recent months social media posts have indicated Josh has been back home in Australia.
The international Covid issues seem likely to have impacted the decision as he continues to stay here.
What’s next for Josh Thomas?
With both Please Like Me and Everything’s Gonna Be Okay now wrapped what will Josh get up to next?
Previous projects have been written by and starred Josh Thomas, but this time there’s hints of something different.
Accompanying his announcement on Facebook he mentioned two upcoming projects stating:
“I am working on a project at the moment (to be announced).”
“And [I] have my hustle on to make a new show – concentrating more on directing and producing. I’m pretty jazzed about it.”
If it’s anything like his previous work it’s going to be worth watching.
As well as being heartfelt and entertaining, Josh Thomas has a knack for casting the right team.
Caitlin Stasey and Debra Lawrance proved to be stellar additions to Please Like Me, with Lawrance collecting a Logie for her efforts.
You can catch Please Like Me on Netflix and Seasons 1 & 2 of Everything’s Gonna Be Okay on Stan in Australia. Watch the season two trailer below.
