The main characters met at college, where Blake and Adam were roommates and Anders was their RA. As they settle into adulthood, they continue to do things associated with college after dropping out (such as drinking, partying, and pranks). The self-proclaimed "friendship family's" schemes are generally confined to their house in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where they often interact with their drug dealer, and a cubicle they share in the Rancho Cucamonga office of a telemarketing company called TelAmeriCorp, where they clash with their boss and coworkers.

The show was co-created and is largely written by its three stars, Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, and Anders Holm.[2] Frequent recurring star Kyle Newacheck also directs most episodes, as well as being a fourth co-creator and serving as executive producer.[1] Kevin Etten is the series' showrunner.[2] Prior to Workaholics, the group was part of the sketch comedy group Mail Order Comedy, which began in 2006 in Los Angeles, California.[3] They have since created a production company under the same name.

Workaholics was ordered by Comedy Central in March 2010 after a Comedy Central executive (Walter Newman) saw a series of videos the group had posted on YouTube.[1][2][4][1] The pilot aired as a "TV Sneak Peek" after the March 15, 2011, debut of the Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump.[2][5][6] [7][6] The program ran its 10-episode first season from April 6 to June 8, 2011, and aired at 10:30 p.m. EDT on Comedy Central.[5] On May 4, 2011, the show was renewed for a second season of ten episodes, which ran from September 20 to November 22, 2011.[8] On October 25, 2011, the series was renewed for a third season which contained 20 episodes. The first 10 episodes of season 3 ran from May 29 to July 31, 2012[9] and the remaining 10 episodes aired from January 16 to March 20, 2013.[10][11] Due to the popularity of the series, on January 6, 2013, Comedy Central ordered 13-episode fourth and fifth seasons.[12] The fourth season aired from January 22 to April 16, 2014.[13] Its fifth season aired from January 14 to April 8, 2015. On July 9, 2015, Comedy Central renewed the series for a sixth and seventh season, each containing 10 episodes and set to air in 2016 and 2017. It was announced that Season 7 would be the final season;[14] it premiered on January 11, 2017 and concluded on March 15, 2017.

The A.V. Club's Kevin McFarland has praised the show, calling it "a more adult version of Ed, Edd n Eddy".[15]

Season 1 of Workaholics was met with "mixed or average reviews" in the words of review tallying website Metacritic.[16] Matthew Gilbert of the Boston Globe gave the first season an 80 overall on MetaCritic saying it was "witty, irreverent, and joyously juvenile." [17] Dave Wiegand gave the show a 75 overall and added, "The material works more often than not because the guys are completely shameless, which makes them difficult to dislike."[18]

Season 2 saw its first 2 million plus viewed episode with the season premiere. The highest rating, a 2.16, was achieved in episode seven titled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Roommates". The show received its highest number of viewers during this season and averaged about 1.64 (million) viewers per episode.

The third-season premiere achieved a 2.11 in the Nielsen ratings, the third highest in the show's history. The number of viewers began to drop off afterward. The final three episodes achieved 1.23, 1.21, 1.24 respectively. Season 3 wrapped up on March 20, 2013, after 20 episodes split over two broadcast seasons.
