Ugly Americans: Comedy Central Series Officially Cancelled

ugly americans canceled, no season threeWith the last episode of Ugly Americans having aired over a year ago, many suspected that the Comedy Central series had been quietly cancelled. Now, the animated show’s producers and creator have officially confirmed the show’s demise. There won’t be a third season but there’s a chance the characters could continue in another form.

On the Ugly Americans Facebook page, creator Devin Clark noted, “Yes. Sadly. It’s official. Ugly Americans is not coming back any time soon. I’m sorry we can’t make more episodes for you guys. I want to thank all the Ugly fans for their support and for all the awesome fan art. Keep it up! Who knows? Maybe we can Kickstart something Ugly in the future. A movie? A graphic novel? The other show producers and I are working hard to find a new home for Mark, Randall, Callie, Twayne, Leonard, and Grimes (and Koala Man of course).”

The producers wrote:

Ugly Americans fans,

As you might have gathered by now, Comedy Central did not renew us for a 3rd season. The reason this notice is coming so late is that, in spite of lukewarm ratings, the network did everything in their power to keep the show alive by trying to find outside financing. We came very close but unfortunately some legal technicalities kept any deals from going through.

We are exploring our options, even ones that don’t include traditional TV episodes, such as original web shorts or even a graphic novel. We love this universe and the characters and we want to keep them alive (or undead) for you in any way we can. We the producers would continue to make the show without a paycheck to ourselves, but unfortunately animation and all the aspects of TV production are rather expensive.

We appreciate your steadfast loyalty to our little show. We will continue to update this page with any news we have about Ugly Americans, along with new projects of interest from the writers, producers, animators, and cast.

Yours in Ugliness,
The Producers of Ugly Americans

    My husband and I love, Loved, LOVED Ugly Americans!!!!!! We have all episodes and watch them all the time. We were totally shocked when it wasn’t renewed… is that possible, when south park is still on?

    How much would it cost to actually fund one season of ugly Americans? I would imagine it being cheaper than arrested development. And it was taken back by netflix. There’s got to be a way to either keep producing it without airing it. And be able to make a profit of sales of eppisodes. Could amazon be the soul fanaciares and make it a selling point like netflix to arrested? I mean we all know that physical dvd’s and other computing devices are the way for the dinosaur. So amazon should seize the oppertunity they have here. Create there own utopic network as it may, and be soon called.
