Get ready to bid farewell to The Carmichael Show. NBC has confirmed that the series won’t be getting renewed for another season.
In a statement announcing the decision, 20th Century Fox Television presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman took a moment to thank the cast — which included Jerrod Carmichael, Amber Stevens West, LilRel Howery, Tiffany Haddish, Loretta Devine, and David Alan Grier — and crew for all their hard work in bringing the brilliant series to life for three seasons.
“We are thankful to the brilliant Jerrod Carmichael and his talented cast, and to the showrunner Danielle Sanchez-Witzel, our fantastic writers and devoted production team,” said Davis and Kurtzman according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Meanwhile, Carmichael himself released a statement saying that he’s already looking forward to what might be in store for him after The Carmichael Show.
“For three seasons (OK 2.5), I got to make a show that I love with my friends. 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,” said the series’ star and co-creator.
According to THR, NBC’s decision to pull the plug on the acclaimed sitcom, came just as options on the cast were due to expire.
With NBC ordering so many new series for the 2017-2018 season, it seems as though they just couldn’t find a place for The Carmichael Show.
The series finale of The Carmichael Show is set to air in August on NBC.
