There was nothing better than hearing that a female-led comedy show was making its way to Comedy Central — except for hearing that this female-led comedy listed Amy Poehler as one of the executive producers. Broad City made its television debut in 2014 and served as further proof that women can be funny. And, yes — it’s sad that that’s something that still needs to be proved. The show, which stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson as best friends living in the city, has currently aired for 40 episodes. Its upcoming fifth season has been announced as its last, with both Glazer and Jacobson making the call to move forward.
The show got its start as a web series, which was independently produced between 2009 and 2011 — so Glazer and Jacobson, who play fictionalized versions of themselves with different last names, have been working on the show in some form for roughly 10 years. If you’re wondering how to catch Broad City streaming online, here’s your guide to the best episodes before its final season airs.

It costs $39.99 per month for the plan that includes limited commercials with the on-demand content or $43.99 per month for the plan that includes no commercials with the on-demand content.
