The Neighbors: Cancelled, No Season Three for ABC Comedy

The Neighbors TV show cancel or renew?It’s time for the aliens to go home. ABC has cancelled The Neighbors after two seasons and 44 episodes.

A family sitcom, The Neighbors follows the Weaver clan as they try to live in a beautiful gated community that’s filled with alien visitors from the planet Zabvron. The ensemble castmembers are Jami Gertz, Lenny Venito, Simon Templeman, Toks Olagundoye, Tim Jo, Clara Mamet, Ian Patrick, Isabella Cramp, and Max Charles.

After a first season of mediocre ratings, the series could have been cancelled last May. However, ABC decided to stick with it and scheduled it on Friday nights. Expectations on Fridays are lower but The Neighbors’ ratings ended up being too low for a third season renewal.

Castmate Olagundoye tweeted the news, “Tweeps, I have known since last night, but was not able to share the news until it was announced publicly. #TheNeighbirs has been cancelled”

What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be a third season? If you ran the network, would you have cancelled this show?

OMG! Look at the lineup on other channel at that time. You tried to get rid of it after the first season, and there was a HUGE outcry. This time I heard nothing about it, so I could help with stopping the station from making an idiotic mistake. Man I remember when you were on top. You have slid into a low spot with decisions like this, you will slide even further. I have ONE show that I watch on your entire network, Last Man Standing!Just to avoid your advertising, I watch your shows on Netflix. Man ABC, you had better get back to the 1/2 hour comedies you were so great at. I do not know who had Dads, but that was the other show I was heartbroken about. Just my opinion, If you do not like it, do not respond, as I asked not to be notified of replies. I am done with ABC! Dancing with the Stars SUCKS. You always throw a couple of old people in there that CANNOT move, since they have never danced, or never exercised in the last decade. That is a risk to their health. Why not throw a wildcard in, make the star the dancer, and take a regular everyday person who is healthy, and see what happens! Or make the person a NEW celebrity like Kandee who was a You Tube hit, and now is the beauty person for Conde Nast who owns a number of entity’s, she would rock, I would watch if someone like that is on, not some of these unknown celebs. My 2 cents, thanks for reading! Better make some good shows or you will be just a memory.

Such a shame, one of the few American sitcoms of recent years I actually enjoyed.
Maybe that’s why it failed, because foreigners could actually get the jokes? lol

Sadly they’ll no doubt replace it with more mindless ‘reality’ crap like Jersey Shore to keep the Zombies from having to think.
