Better Things Season 5 is ready for release this February, and fans of the series can’t wait to see what will happen in the story. 

Better Things is an American comedy-drama television series created by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K. 

The series and the cast’s performance have been praised for the last four seasons. The leading character, Adlon, was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2017 and 2018.

The show, later on, received a Peabody Award in April 2017, with the board stating: “This searingly funny and beautiful show is an at-times raw examination of the vicissitudes of working motherhood, crackling with feminist verve and energy, that consistently cuts new ground.”
