United States of Tara: Showtime Comedy Cancelled; No Season Four

United States of Tara canceled season fourWhile Nurse Jackie has been renewed for a fourth season, Showtime has decided that they’ve had enough of their other Monday night comedy, United States of Tara. The latter TV series has been cancelled after three seasons.

Starring Toni Collette, United States of Tara revolves around a suburban wife and mother who suffers from multiple personalities. Others in the cast include Brie Larson, John Corbett, Keir Gilchrist, and Rosemarie DeWitt.

Collette has been nominated for three Emmy awards for the role and won in 2009 for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series. Debuting in January of 2009, the TV series was created by Diablo Cody and was based on an idea from Steve Spielberg.

Tara’s rating have been sliding for awhile so the cancellation isn’t actually a big shock. Last season, Tara averaged more than 550,000 viewers while season three to date is down more than 40%, averaging about 325,000.

In addition to tonight’s, there are three episodes left in season three. The series finale is set to air on June 20th and is titled “The Good Parts.”

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that there won’t be a fourth season or was it time for United States of Tara to end?

Bah! I love this show soooo much!! Toni Collete is SUCH a talented actress, she was AMAZING playing this role. I am so incredibly sad to see that it ended at Season 3, they could have gone another several seasons and I would have been there to watch every single one at LEAST three times! Also, John Corbett was/is sexy as hell. And I aint gonna lie… I’d do Buck too lol **** Nurse Jackie, that show has NOTHING on USOT! We miss you, Tara!!

Huge mistake loved this show, I finally found a show my husband and family would sit and actually watch together. No ending… u could have at least put an ending to it come on esp with the writer of this story has so much classic movies and great imagination i can only imagine what he would have done.

this one is a winner. i watched the first three seasons, then watched them again. i’m amazed at the thick oblivian of whomever makes these “green light” decisions; this show is leading edge. it’s probably too late to rev it up again, but i hope those in charge realize it was a mistake to cancel.
and who the hell is nurse jackie??

Agreed… Whoever end cancelled this show at Showtime are idiots! TV is dying, because of decisions like this. I never even knew the show was on in it’s Hay day. Just watched all 3 seasons and loved it! They’re losing tons of money in royalties by not having at least 2 more seasons to this show. Huge mistake, huge!

I am so sad this show was cancelled. I just now watched all three seasons in their entirety and am so impressed with the acting and writing. THere wasn’t a single episode that didn’t blow my mind! As someone touched on earlier, this show was realistic and touched on real problems that families have to deal with every day. And it’s therapeutic for anyone suffering from D.I.D. and/or bringing up a family in this multifaceted/destructive environment, and translating this into a tv show which everyone can relate. It’s bewildering to me, the shows that continue, with consective seasons, that don’t come close to the excitement and creativity that Tara delivered. It really makes you wonder what in the hell people find entertaining! Anyway, if anyone is listening or reading this…please contact the cast of this show and offer them a chance to continue this awesome and thrilling ride ! Tara, Max, Kate, Marshal, Charm, Neil and baby….Your fans love you and miss you!!!!

Exstremely unhappy1 ! Loved this show it was dramatic,funny,sadistic and a real problem in American society! I wanted to see if Tara realy received the help she needed and got better or if she continued to piss on her father.
