The Carmichael Show Cancelled After Three Seasons
It looks like The Carmichael Show is coming to an end after its third season this summer. The Hollywood Reporter tells us that NBC has just cancelled the critically-praised television series from comedian Jerrod Carmichael. Definitely sucks to hear The Carmichael Show cancelled by NBC.
“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 said in a statement on Friday. “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. 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.”
Carmichael landed the series after his breakout role in Neighbors, which was directed by Carmichael Show co-creator and executive producer Nicholas Stoller. The series finale will air this August. Jerrod revealed that he was leaving the series as cast options were set to expire at the end of the day Friday.
“We are enormously proud of The Carmichael Show and Jerrod’s talent and vision to do a classic family sitcom that also taps into issues and relevant stories from the real world,” NBC Entertainment heads Bob Greenblatt and Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “We thank and salute the cast, crew, and producers — and especially Jerrod — for three critically acclaimed seasons.”
“For three seasons (OK 2.5), I got to make a show that I love with my friends,” Jerrod himself added in a statement. “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.”
