The Carmichael Show will end after three seasons on NBC
The Carmichael Show has been cancelled after three seasons at NBC, The Hollywood Reporter today confirms. Created by Jerrod Carmichael, Ari Katcher, Willie Hunter, and Nicholas Stoller, the acclaimed sitcom is currently in the middle of its third season, which should finish airing this summer.
Inspired by the life of comedian Jerrod Carmichael, The Carmichael Show has followed Jerrod and his opinionated North Carolina family as they navigate topics that all families face today in America. Nothing is too uncomfortable to explore, including police protests, guns and religion. Jerrod often finds himself debating such issues with his old-school father, Joe (David Alan Grier), his devoutly religious mother, Cynthia (Loretta Devine), his progressive live-in girlfriend, Maxine (Amber Stevens West), his recently separated brother, Bobby (Rel Howery), and Bobby’s estranged and outspoken wife, Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish). And somewhere in the middle of all of their disagreeing is the heart of this family.
“For three seasons (okay 2.5), I got to make a show that I love with my friends,” says Carmichael himself. “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’ 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,” adds 20th Century Television. “We are thankful to the brilliant Jerrod Carmichael and his talented cast, and to showrunner Danielle Sanchez-Witzell, 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.”
Executive producers on The Carmichael Show include Jerrod Carmichael, Nick Stoller, Ravi Nandan and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel. The series has been co-produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television and Universal Television.
