During a recent appearance on the Modern School of Film’s Murmur podcast, series creator Adam Reed said he plans to end the comedy — which returns in Jan. 2017 with its eighth season — after Season 10.

“I don’t know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan – to do 8, 9, and 10 and they’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes – and then wind it up,” Reed explained. “I was gonna end it after 8, but then I had sort of a brain explosion of a way that I could do three more seasons and really keep my interest up. So the three seasons that are coming up are gonna be pretty different from what has come before, and they’re gonna be different from each other.”
