When last we left our intrepid and at least slightly nutty heroine, Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom), she was at her wedding, abandoned at the altar by her obsession, Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III). In that moment, Rebecca found herself in a cliffhanger. Literally, because she, like, almost flung herself off a cliff. Instead, she found an unexpected well of strength inside herself and finally stood up to her abandoning father, flanked by her fierce girl squad. Phew. It was quite the wedding.
In the season premiere, Rebecca, abandoned at the altar by her obsession, Josh, works to plot her revenge with the help of Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin), Heather (Vella Lovell) and Valencia (Gabrielle Ruiz). It might be a bit tough to figure out, since he ran off the day of the wedding to become a priest. Meanwhile, White Josh (David Hull) and Darryl (Pete Gardner) have some problems to work on and Paula and Scott (guest star Steve Monroe) confront some unusual issues in their marriage.
Season three will spend more time with a new man in Rebecca’s orbit, mega WASP Nathaniel Plimpton III (Scott Michael Foster), who will collide with her like a very handsome meteor. He may seem all alpha on the outside, but he has his own daddy issues to work out. Supercouple White Josh and Darryl will be challenged by Darryl’s baby fever. Will Darryl give up his yen for a baby Darryl or Darrylette? And how will Rebecca be entangled in their plans? And what about Rebecca’s mental health? Will she finally turn her attention to the fuel for her romantic fire? This and more, accompanied by a bejillion songs and dances, coming up next on season three of CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND.
