After nearly a decade of making their iconic comedy series, two New York City broads are getting ready to move on.

The fifth season of Comedy Central’s “Broad City” will be its last, it was announced on Thursday, but fans can rest assured they’ll be seeing plenty more from stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, with three Comedy Central projects already in the pipeline.

“’Broad City’ has been our baby and first love for almost 10 years, since we started as a web series,” Glazer, 31, and Jacobson, 34, said in a news 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.”

The final season of the NYC-set comedy series doesn’t have a specific premiere date, but is expected in “early 2019.”

The duo’s new projects include animated series “Mall Town USA,” Los Angeles-set “Platinum Status,” (starring Glazer’s brother, Eliot Glazer) and “Young Professionals,” set in D.C.
