After a very successful third season of the hit FX comedy series Dave, which premiered last April, fans have been anxious to get a new season sooner than later. We've sadly learned today that Dave Burd, better known as the rapper Lil Dicky, has announced that the show has officially hit pause & will be taking a break before starting season 4.

What Lil Dicky & FX are saying about the "Dave" break.

In a statement from both Burd & the network, they seem very optimistic about the show's future & very supportive of each other during this new era.

“Making Dave has been and continues to be a dream come true. But there are other creative ventures that I am dying to pursue as well. For the past 5 years, I’ve poured every fiber of my being into the show, and after three amazing seasons, this feels like a good time to press pause to give myself the bandwidth to do some of the other things I have always wanted to do. I am beyond excited about what I have planned for the future and am enormously appreciative of FX for their continued partnership,” Dave Burd said.

FX said in a statement: “After some back and forth, there are no current plans for a fourth season of ‘Dave’ right now, as Dave Burd has decided to take an extended break to focus on music and other ventures. That does not rule out the possibility of doing something in the future. We love the show and sincerely appreciate the creative excellence Dave, Jeff Schaffer, the cast and crew delivered with every episode. We are excited that our partnership with Dave will continue as he develops future projects for us through his overall production deal with FXP.”

The show stars Burd as a neurotic man & suburbanite in his mid-20s who's convinced that he's destined to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Alongside Burd in the cast is Taylor Misiak, Andrew Santino, GaTa, Travis Bennett and Christine Ko. Jeff Schaffer, who comes from the Larry David comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm, created & executive produces the show alongside Burd. Kevin Hart also serves as an executive producer.

This past month, the rapper-comedian turned actor released his first album in nearly nine years which is aptly titled, Penith (The DAVE Soundtrack), and features the single Mr. McAdams. This new break will likely see Burd taking the time to focus on some more new music outside of the show & possibly pursuing some other acting opportunities.
