"Katrina" was supposed to be the SECOND "American Crime Story" season and it's now out of the mix. "Charles and Diana" was supposed to be the second "Feud" season and it's now out of the mix. Don't count your Ryan Murphy anthological chickens. #TCA19

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend - Concert Special to Air After Series Finale

"CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND" CONCERT SPECIAL TO AIR IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE SERIES FINALE ON APRIL 5

February 1, 2019 (Burbank, CA) -The CW will air a special concert event titled, "Yes, It's Really Us Singing: The 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' Concert Special!" immediately after the series finale on Friday, April 5 at 9:00pm ET/PT. Rachel Bloom and the cast of the critically acclaimed series will perform live versions of fan-favorite songs along with incredible staging, multimedia visuals and a live band and orchestra. Building on the momentum of the sold-out success of the "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" Live Tour, this one-of-a-kind special event will be equal parts concert special, rock concert and musical revue.

"The songwriters of 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,' Rachel Bloom, Jack Dolgen and Adam Schlesinger, have written more than 150 outstanding songs in our four seasons. It is an unprecedented contribution to the American songbook. I'm so thrilled we can share those songs with the world in a spontaneous format that really showcases their humor and genius," said co-creator and Showrunner, Aline Brosh McKenna.

The concert special will be the exclamation point at the end of the fourth and final season, a special treat for the fans, and a celebration of the over 150 original songs that make up the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend songbook. The concert will be taped in Los Angeles in March.
