Suburgatory: No Season Four, ABC Sitcom Cancelled

Suburgatory season threeAfter three seasons, ABC is moving on. The network has cancelled Suburagatory.

Suburgatory continues the story of single dad George Altman (Jeremy Sisto) and his teenage daughter (Jane Levy) after they move from the city an overly wholesome community in the suburbs. This season, the rest of the cast includes Cheryl Hines, Allie Grant, Ana Gasteyer, Chris Parnell, and Carly Chaikin.

The show premiered in September 2011 to a very strong 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.8 million viewers. The numbers dwindled downward over the course of the season but the network renewed it for season two anyway.

Season two started off well but once again, the ratings dwindled downward. This time, ABC gave Suburgatory a limited 13 episode renewal.

In season three, the ratings started pretty low and stayed there. The current season has averaged a 1.6 demo rating with 5.44 million viewers. It’s down 27% in the demo when compared to season two’s average.

The network has now decided to call it quits after 57 episodes. The season (now series) finale of Suburgatory will air next Wednesday, May 14th.

What do you think? Are you sorry that this show has been cancelled? Should it have been renewed for season four? Would you watch it on another channel?

Today I watched the last episode of season 3 and its definitly not an ending.
Therefore I’m shocked to read that this is the end.
I watched every episode from the Start and I wish a real ending for a really good serie.

I want to see more of george and dallas and definitly more if ryan and tessa.
Afterall this time they came back together and then nothing???

But I think nothing will change this decision.
Sad. Real sad.

I find this devastating that there will not be a 4th season of this show. I have watched every episode of every season religiously and think it is fantastic. The final episode of season three is in no way a series ender, you can NOT leave fans with this as a final episode. All these big companies don’t care about who IS watching their shows and only care about who ISN’T watching their shows. I’ve spent hours of my time watching this show for them to just cancel it like that, without a thought for its fans. So concerned about ratings at least create a proper finale episode, even make an online series or episode. So so so disappointed, this show was unique and enjoyable. It was comedy but I found myself feeling emotional with the characters through love (proposal ect). Very sad. UK fan.

This is indeed really sad news. I believe that the ratings have gone down because not many people are aware of this series. Well not as many people are aware of this series in comparison to other well known series. ABC could have advertised even more. But I know for a fact that most people will love Suburgatory even before the first season is over. It is worth watching. It is a series that stays interesting and above all stays different. It isn’t your typical Mom, Dad and three kids series but instead it shows a great relationship between a dad and his daughter who learn to adapt to their new circumstances. It is a light-hearted entertaining and highlight of the day type of series. I truly think this is one of my favourite series and the decision to cancel it was definitely the wrong one. 5.44 million viewers are hoping for a return of this series!! 5.44 million people love it. Aren’t 5.44 million people enough reason to bring back a series?..

Im litterally crying cause of the terrible news…it had became a habbit. I just fell in love with the caracters and hoped to be apart of their futur and you’ve just broke all the hope i had. Why? Why did you do this to me?? Maybe the views are low but im still watching it! People are still watching it! You may say “we’re loosing money, it is all about buisness, blah blah blah ” but thats not a fair reason to cancelled this amazing show. Make it famous, make a move, do something! Dont let us down, ours hearts are broken because of you! #teamsuburgatory‚ô°

I . truly disappointed that this show has been cancelled, I look forward to watching this show every week, I love how it is so unique, and that its not caved into the pressure of changing anything about it, the fact that it may not have plenty of viewers is ridiculous it may.not be the most watched program on television but I know of plenty f.people.who.enjoy it, and clearly by these other comments its not just in Britain. Only.people.who.can understand this program properly find it enjoyable, its like Tessa she is.nothing like the other people in chatswin but that’s what makes her great, and that’s what makes this show great, and I truly hope that you will reconsider renewing this.series, regardless of what channel it is on I happy to watch it. Thankyou
