TV Land has decided to cancel Happily Divorced after two seasons. The sitcom’s co-creator, Peter Marc Jacobson, broke the news to his followers on Facebook this evening.
Jacobson wrote, “THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT WITH HAPPILY DIVORCED. UNFORTUNATELY TVLAND HAS DECIDED NOT TO PICK US UP. BUT THANK YOU GUYS FOR UR LOVE N SUPPORT!”
Based on the real-life marriage of Fran Drescher and Jacobson, Happily Divorced follows a Los Angeles florist (Drescher) whose husband comes out of the closet after 18-years of marriage. Unable to sell their house, she and her gay ex-husband (John Michael Higgins) continue to live together. Still friends and now “happily divorced,” they both re-enter the dating world.
The cast also features Tichina Arnold, Rita Moreno, Robert Walden, and Valente Rodriguez.
Season one of Happily Divorced averaged 1.69 million viewers but season two dropped off, averaging 1.1 million.
The last episode aired on February 13th.
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Happily Divorced won’t be back for a third season? Did you lose interest in season two or are you still a fan?
