Fran Drescher’s latest sitcom won’t be returning to the airwaves for another season.
According to reports, the actress’ comedy Happily Divorced was recently canceled by the cable network. Although the show stuck it out for two seasons, apparently viewership wasn’t strong enough to warrant yet another go-around.
Based on her own life, Drescher stars as divorcee Fran Lovett on the program. The story follows the florist after she files for divorce from her gay husband. Their situation is soon complicated after the couple decides to keep living in the same home.
In addition to the former Nanny star, the sitcom featured Best in Show alum John Michael Higgins and D.W. Moffett.
Unfortunately, fans of Happily Divorced won’t get a proper send off. TV Land announced that the end of season two will effectively serve as the finale. Since the program was canceled in-between seasons, the story won’t have the luxury of wrapping things up.
Fran Drescher’s comedy isn’t the only series on the cable network to get the proverbial ax in recent months. After two seasons on TV Land, the George Segal comedy Retired at 35 was dropped back in December.
Despite the recent cancellations, the network still has a number of original half-hour programs to offer its viewers. The Soul Man, The Exes, and the popular comedy Hot in Cleveland are sticking around for the time being.
TV Land is currently working on a handful of new programs to fill the void left by Retired at 35 and Happily Divorced. Kirstie Alley’s aptly-titled Kirstie and Jamie Pressley’s Jennifer Falls are presently being developed. Sex and the City mastermind Darren Star’s Younger is also in the works.
Fans of the former Living with Fran star can find the actress next in director Clay Westervelt’s biographical comedy Scum Rocks. She will appear alongside Matthew Broderick and Kevin Bacon in the flick.
