Legit: FXX TV Show Cancelled, No Season Three

Legit TV show canceled, no season 3FXX has pulled the plug on Legit after two seasons. Tonight’s episode will also serve as the comedy’s series finale.

Legit revolves around a fictional version of Australian stand-up comic Jim Jeffries who’s made it big on the comedy circuit in the US and now wants to grow up. His friends and Venice, CA roommates are his divorced and alcoholic best friend, Steve (Dan Bakkedahl), and Steve’s brother, Billy (DJ Qualls) who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Episodes are based on Jeffries’ stand-up routines.

The series has struggled in the ratings, particularly once it moved from FX to FXX. As a result, the cable channel has decided they don’t want a third season.

In a post on his Facebook page, Jeffries wrote, “Legit has been cancelled. Sorry to everyone who was a fan of the show, please watch tonight it’s the final two episodes. I am very proud of the work that I did on this show and I made friends that ill have for life. So I’m going to try and not be sad about this.”

What do you think? Did you like Legit? Are you sorry that it’s been cancelled? Do you think it should have been renewed for a third season?

legit should be renewed or Netflix should pick it up for a new season since Netflix is purchasing and producing shows now it’s a thought and legit was a great show its a shame it was cancelled

Love this show and all the characters, and support a renewal. This show while funny also has a refreshing realism to it, we all have oddities and disabilities and we should all be able to laugh at ourselves. Jim Jeffries show helps people to not be afraid of befriending disabled people. I must say I never heard of this show and happened on to it. Watched the first episode on Netflix. Hopefully Netflix, Hulu or another network will pick it up.

Just found this show. Sucks to find out its been cancelled. I don’t normally laugh at TV but this show was pretty good. Figures it’d get cancelled, I liked it.

Goddamn tv executives.

Considering that Legit was the HIGH-WATER-MARK, in commercial network comedy, it only makes sense that such a ground-breaking program would be purged. It’s as if it went over-the-falls in a barrel, because the river-of-shit it was traversing was too stuffed with such vapid, base, swill that the network couldn’t allow the comparison to be made.

This is one of the best shows I’ve seen in a very long time. Funniest thing since Chappelle’s Show. I’ve also had a few tears shed for the characters in the show. BRING IT BACK! SEASON 3! PLEASE! <3

Take stupid louie ck off and give us back a worth while show like legit…. Jim jefferies is much better than louie ck, and funnier..
Jim jefferies is funny and has talent so take off stupid crap like louie ck . I know he is on fxx and he shouldn’t be on at all.
We want legit back, at least season three….

They made the right decision here. Legit was just a drawn out version of Jim Jefferies stand up routine and after season 1 he was out of material. It is no wonder there won’t be a third season. Louis CK is a comedic genius and his show gets renewed because it is original and he doesn’t make sacrifices to the show just to make a buck. Before the last season, he took a 2 year hiatus from writing and producing the show (he does EVERYTHING for this show) to come up with new material instead of going into the last season with nothing but the desire to make a new season and a buck. Jim, get back to your comedy routine and maybe you’ll have another season of a show in another decade.

This really sucks, this is one of the best shows I have ever watched. Why do they cancel all the good shows. I bet NRA had a say in this, those wankers.

Legit is one of the best shows on TV. FXX needs to step up and give us what we want or they can bugger off!!!
