Gabourey Sidibe Gets 1 More Season On 'The Big C' As Showtime Renews For 4th

This is one of those shows that I watched 2 or 3 episodes of, when it debuted, and never returned. I just wasn't immediately sucked in.

But no matter, because enough people are apparently watching it, since Showtime has renewed The Big C for a fourth season - although it'll be its last.

That's probably good news for co-star Gabourey Sidibe, who we haven't seen much from, since her acclaimed performance in 2009's Precious. Last year's Tower Heist, has really been it in terms of big screen work; although she's in 2 films that have yet to be released: Yelling To The Sky and Seven Psychopaths

And on TV, The Big C has been her main gig for 2 years; hence why I think it's probably good news for her that it's been renewed. It's work, and it's paid, to start with.

The series stars Laura Linney as a woman coping with her cancer diagnosis, and all the different people in and out of her life.

Showtime will bring the series back with four hour-long episodes (it's usually a 30-minute show). 

Oliver Platt, Gabriel Basso, and John Benjamin Hickey also co-star.

Idris Elba had a short stint on the series - 4 episodes in 2010, playing a romantic interest for Linney's character.

Any of you Big C fans?
