The Goldbergs will be back next season but the same can’t be said for its companion series, Trophy Wife. ABC has cancelled the show after one season of 22 episodes.
Trophy Wife revolves around a former partygirl (Malin Åkerman) who becomes the third wife of an older man (Bradley Whitford) and becomes part of a large family that includes three step-kids and two ex-wives. Marcia Gay Harden, Michaela Watkins, Natalie Morales, Ryan Lee, Bailee Madison, and Albert Tsai round out the cast.
The sitcom started out okay in the ratings but they quickly dropped in subsequent weeks. They really fell after the end of 2013 and this week’s episode hit a series low with a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.48 million viewers.
Of the news, Akerman tweeted, “Thank u all for your loyalty and passion #TrophyWife fans. We had a blast! Sad to see it go but happy to have lifelong family out there. Xx”
The final episode is scheduled for next Tuesday night, May 13th.
What do you think? Are you sorry that Trophy Wife has been cancelled? If you ran the network, would you have renewed it for a second season?
