Dave Burd is pressing pause on Dave. The co-creator and star of the FX comedy says he has no current plans for a forth season, and is stepping away from the show for the time being to focus on other projects.

"Making Dave has been and continues to be a dream come true," said Burd in a statement. "But there are other creative ventures that I am dying to pursue as well. For the past five years, I've poured every fiber of my being into the show, and after three amazing seasons, this feels like a good time to press pause to give myself the bandwidth to do some of the other things I have always wanted to do. I am beyond excited about what I have planned for the future and am enormously appreciative of FX for their continued partnership."

For its part, FX has not ruled out the possibility of an eventual return of Dave for Season 4. But as of right now the network is focused on their partnership with Burd as he develops future projects as part of his overall production deal.
