Sad news for fans of The Carmichael Show!
NBC has decided to cancel the comedy series after its current third season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The Carmichael Show was such a wonderful show that we choose to focus today not on its loss but on the three incredible seasons we had the pleasure to produce,” 20th Century Fox Television presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman, who helped produce the show, said in a statement.
“We are thankful to the brilliant Jerrod Carmichael and his talented cast, and to showrunner Danielle Sanchez-Witzel, our fantastic writers and devoted production team,” they went on. “It’s a rarity that a comedy series tackles the social and political issues of the day in such a clever and hilariously funny way. This show was special, and we will miss it.”
“For three seasons (okay 2.5), I got to make a show that I love with my friends,” co-creator and star Jerrod added. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was 13. Now, I’m excited to go make other things that I love. Thank you to every person who worked on or watched The Carmichael Show.”
The Carmichael Show‘s finale will premiere in August.
