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?

This show is one of the funniest I’ve seen in along time it would be a shame and a mistake not to have a third or hey even fourth season especially now a days it seems like people don’t try or care enough to make decent shows or movies

Thought Legit was very funny. Disappointed it won’t be back. So much of TV is so bad. Legit made me laugh out loud every time. Back to the awfulness and horrors of The Big Bang Theory reruns, I guess. Cruel world.
