Worsties, rejoice!

Season two of FXX's critical darling comedy You're the Worst returns Sept. 9 and The Hollywood Reporter has you covered.

Created by Stephen Falk (Orange Is the New Black), the comedy — which centers on two horrible people, Jimmy (Chris Geere) and Gretchen (Aya Cash), and their misadventures in life, love and romance — quickly became a critical darling during its 10-episode run on FX. The anti-romantic comedy will move to younger-skewing cable network FXX for its sophomore season, which will focus on a "big issue" and feature the return of fan-favorite episode "Sunday Funday," with a whole new twist. 

To celebrate the show's return, THR raided Edgar's (Desmin Borges) kitchen to get the recipes for the show's beloved Breakfast Nachos, Breakfast Pizza and Breakfast Lasagna. Not to be outdone, we also got our hands on Vernon's (Todd Robert Anderson) secret stash and the recipe for Trash Juice in a bid to prepare for the show's return in style.

Special shout-out to Falk and his fellow You're the Worst writers, as well as prop master Rick Ladomade, who with his team, came up with the delectable delights.
