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?

Great show. Too bad it’s not renewed on FXX… but I like the idea of a possible 3rd season via Netflix, like arrested development did….

I don’t watch much TV but I followed this show on NetFlix. I don’t even have cable or satelite and this show made me consider paying for cable again just so I didn’t have to wait on Netflix to get it. This Show should be picked up by someone.With the junk that is still on TV how does this get canceled?

Why not on something like Netflix. They are making more and more Netflix original shows. They do edgy stuff and I think it would fit perfectly as a Netflix Series. Thoughts? That is where I discovered it as well. Netflix is where I found it and why I found this article.
