Fox has officially cancelled their comedy series Raising Hope. Deadline is reporting that the show is to wrap up after season four, which will go out with an hour-long farewell on Friday, April 4.
Fans will no doubt be upset. The quirky series was initially considered to be one of Fox’s standout comedies, becoming the first in a while to actually last. Things started to look down after creator Greg Garcia left the project and the series was moved to Fridays in the States, where its ratings dropped considerably.
Here is what Fox chairman Kevin Reilly and COO Joe Earley had to say: “Getting to know and love the Chance family on Raising Hope has been a sweet, hilarious ride. Thanks to the incredibly talented cast — along with Greg, Mike and the entire crew — for making us laugh for four fantastic seasons.”
Fans needn’t worry about the series going out without a proper ending. “We planned our Season 4 finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville,” Mariano said. “Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”
