Don't forget that Derek is helping out Janet by creating people himself. Derek is still imperfect, so there's no telling what kinds of people he's made. Maybe they're all carrying around giant martini glasses full of olives.

Reviving this thread (which is, I think, the latest one about the show) to link to an article in which show runner Michael Schur announced that the upcoming fourth season will be the last one.

I'm glad to see that there's a plan for a definitive ending, as sad as I'll be to see the show go.

Is one season enough for Jason to deal with the fact that Bortles no longer plays for the Jaguars?

Luckily the new Jags QB (Nick Foles) is also "kind of okay, maybe, I don’t know, it’s being debated among experts, it’s confusing." Although, he does have a Super Bowl ring.

It was a smart move to end the series. It was a complicated concept and could only go on for so long. You could see it starting to flag this season (still with some high points like "Janet(s)"), and it was smart to bring it to an end.

Worse, they've been doing this for a few hundred years, I believe. Bortles not only doesn't play for the Jags...he's dead.

Perhaps, but in the episodes that took place on Earth, it appeared to be more or less the present day. It didn't look like it was intended to be hundreds of years in the future.
