TV’s first polyromantic comedy is back for season four on AT&T AUDIENCE Network. What began as an impulsive date between suburban husband Jack (Greg Poehler) and neophyte escort Izzy (Faia) spins into a whirlwind three-way affair that includes Jack’s wife Emma (Blanchard). Over a span of 10 days, their arrangement becomes something else entirely: A real romance with real stakes involving real people.

The third season of You Me Her heavily revolves around the polyamorous relationship that develops between a married couple, Jack Trakarsky (Greg Poehler) and Emma Trakarsky (Rachel Blanchard), and an escort, Isabelle "Izzy" Silva (Priscilla Faia).

To make things more complicated, Emma found out that she is pregnant with Jack's child. While excitement for the baby grows, so do the tensions among trio as they constantly argued about where to raise the baby and if the former should take the management job at the firm back in Seattle.

All the drama came to an end with Emma screwing up her interview for the said management job. Instead of being sad about, the incident made her realize what she wanted - she wanted to continue her relationship with Jack and Izzy. Hence, the trio took part in a commitment ceremony in a pizza joint in front of their family and friends.

Now, the upcoming You Me Her Season 4 picks up with Emma, Jack, and Izzy settling back in after the surprise poly commitment ceremony. The trio also eyes life in the suburbs and test-rents the Helen Wilberg house in suburban Hawthorne Heights, where their unique relationship will surely raise everyone's eyebrows.
