ABC has dealt yet another crushing blow to fans of ‘Black-ish.’
Just moments after it was reported the Kenya Barris-created series would see its 8th season as its last (as we reported here), one of its spinoffs has been placed on the network’s chopping block as well.
As we reported here, ‘Mixed-ish‘ – one of three spinoffs from ‘Black-ish’ (alongside ‘grown-ish’ and the forthcoming ‘old-ish‘) – may have seen its first season greeted with commendable ratings figures, but such was not as much the case for its second swing at bat. As waning ratings reports followed for the entirety of its sophomore run, ABC nixed the show from its programming lineup.
What’s more, a few other beloved series caught the axe with the Tracee Ellis Ross-narrated comedy (which starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tika Sumpter, Christina Anthony, and more).
“Comedies “American Housewife” and “Mixed-ish” and dramas “For Life” and “Rebel” have all been canceled at ABC. A cancellation for the comedy “Call Your Mother” was previously announced.
“American Housewife” has aired five seasons and logged more than 100 episodes at ABC. “For Life” has aired two seasons on ABC. According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, there are plans to shop the series to other outlets for a potential third season.”
