Fox Cancels "Raising Hope" After Four Seasons
They’ve been bringing plenty of laughter and fun to fans over the past four years, but unfortunately for the cast of "Raising Hope," the show got the axe.
Fox announced on Monday (March 10) the comedy starring Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton and Garrett Dillahunt ends its run with an hour-long series finale on Friday (April 4th).
EP/showrunner Mike Mariano said in a statement, “On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and ‘Raising Hope’s’ amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons.”
“We planned our season four finale with the possibility in mine, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again and we’ll see you in syndication.”
The big decision to cancel the show comes days after the network announced its renewal for shows including comedies “The Mindy Project,” “New Girl,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
The show moved from its Tuesday block to Fridays this season as Fox made attempts to attract more male viewers to “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Dad.” Unfortunately, "Raising Hope" has a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 and has only 3.3 million views.
Meanwhile, the cast members including Neff and Dillahunt have had multiple pilot offers for new television series which may air next fall.
