It's no secret that the Birth.Movies.Death. team loves Comedy Central's Nathan For You. Nathan Fielder's quasi-reality series is quite possibly the funniest thing the network's put on the air in over a decade ("What about..." You heard me), and its absence from the TV landscape has been felt ever since its third season came to an end back in December of 2015.
We've long known a fourth season of Nathan For You was in the works, but no one seemed to have any idea when it might arrive (given the extreme lengths Fielder and company have to go to in order to put this show together, that's totally understandable). But today, we finally received an update...
Hey everyone guess what. Nathan For You returns Sept 28 to Comedy Central— nathan fielder (@nathanfielder) July 25, 2017
But, wait, there's more...
A week before premiere (Sept 21) we're airing a 1 hr special where I check in w/ folks from past eps called "Nathan for You: A Celebration"— nathan fielder (@nathanfielder) July 25, 2017
Yes, the fourth season of Nathan For You will arrive on September 28th, and one week prior we'll be getting a reunion episode of sorts, one which will check in with the many everyday people Fielder has helped over the years. You have to assume they're all doing great.
Nathan For You defies easy description. Indeed, this writer has found that it's far easier - and more enjoyable! - to just spring episodes on people without explaining what they're about to get into. My fellow Nathan For You fans all seem to have their go-to gateway episodes, but my favorite remains the "Ghost Realtor" episode, which - without exaggeration - features some of the funniest shit I have ever seen on television. Here's a taste.
I encourage all of you to post your favorite Nathan For You scenes in the comments below. Plan your rewatches, get your friends onboard with the show now - Nathan Fielder's back on September 28th, and we couldn't be more excited about it.
