Three's Company was an American Comedy TV series that aired on ABC from 1976-1984 and was based on the 1973 ITV series Man About The House. The show told the story of roommates Jack, Janet and Chrissy, with a running gag centering around Jack pretending to be gay so that the landlords would let him stay. The show had two Spin-offs, Three's A Crowd and The Ropers.
The canon pairings were:
However, Jack/Janet is by far the most popular het ship in the fandom due to the chemistry the characters and their actors shared onscreen. The show teased the pairing here and there, but nothing ever came of it due to the roommates' agreement to stay platonic. Fanfic pairing Jack and Janet tends to either ignore the series finale or do away with Philip and Vicky through either killing them off or having Janet and Jack break up with them.
Femslash pairing Helen Roper with one of the female roommates is fairly common; while Helen is married, she and Stanley are shown to be quite unhappy with one another most of the time. Chrissy Snow is usually the most popular choice for a Helen ship.
The OT3 of Janet/Jack/Chrissy has been written at least once.
