"Broad City has been our baby and first love for almost ten years, since we started as a web series," Glazer and Jacobson said in a press release. "It’s been a phenomenal experience, and we’ve put ourselves into it completely."

"Broad City’s always had a spontaneous pace and feeling, and ending after season five honors that spirit. We are very excited to bring new voices and points of view to Comedy Central and continue our collaboration together in new ways,” they said.

Even though the show is coming to a close, the actors' relationship with Viacom isn't ending anytime soon.

Comedy Central also announced that it's developing three new shows with Glazer and Jacobson: Mall Town USA, Platinum Status, and Young Professionals.
