FXX picks up 'Wilfred' for fourth, and final, season

One of TV's oddest shows, "Wilfred," which stars Elijah Wood in an anthropomorphic relationship with his neighbor's dog (Jason Gann), has been picked up by FXX for a fourth — and final — season.

Based on a critically acclaimed Australian series of the same name, "Wilfred" was initially developed by FX Networks in 2010, with Wood's casting as a depressed young man named Ryan being announced in late June of that year.

Wood's character was described by David Zuckerman ("Family Guy"), who adapted the show for American television, as "an introverted and troubled young man struggling unsuccessfully to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with Wilfred, his neighbor's canine pet."

The neighbor in question is played by Fiona Gubelmann.

The series premiered in June 2011, when it became the highest-ranking debut sitcom ever for FX Networks. It continued to hold its own in the top 10 of cable television shows during its first season. During Season 3 it averaged just under 1 million viewers.

The final season will have a 10-episode run next year.
