Booyakasha! Today is a sad day for lovers of the unique brand of humor made famous by Sacha Baron Cohen, who portrays characters like Bruno, Borat and, of course, British hip-hop legend Ali G.
After first gaining acclaim for his characters on British television, Cohen brought his show stateside for two masterful seasons of Da Ali G Show on HBO.
Up until now, there has been very little news as to when and if a third season of Ali G might be happening. Currently Cohen is hard at work on a Borat movie.
IGN FilmForce caught up with one of the Ali G writers and former star of the acclaimed Freaks and Geeks, Seth Rogan, at the recent press day for 40 Year Old Virgin. As the interview wound to a close, I asked Rogan what he had planned for the third season of Ali G. His answer was an unfortunate surprise: “There is no third season. It’s over. The show is over.”
And with that, Ali G fans everywhere are encouraged to “Keep it real” and hope for the best with the Borat movie. “Respeck!”
