Working Class: CMT Sitcom Cancelled, No Season Two

Working Class canceledDespite a great start, there won’t be a second season of CMT’s first original sitcom, Working Class. The cable channel has announced that the TV series has been cancelled after just 12 episodes.

Working Class revolves around Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom who’s trying to give her kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that the transition is harder than she thought. She’s unwittingly befriended by her cranky neighbor, Hank (Ed Asner), and her only career prospect is a grocery store job working under Rob (Patrick Fabian), the man she’s attracted to who also has a girlfriend. With the help of her brother (Steve Kazee), Carli somehow finds a way to make it all work. Her kids are played by Lachlan Buchanan, Courtney Merritt, and Cameron Castaneda.

The sitcom started off as the highest-rated and most-watched series debut in CMT’s history with 1.2 million total viewers. Unfortunately, that didn’t last and the ratings dropped. The season finale aired on April 1st.

CMT has now decided to cancel Working Class and posted the news on the show’s official Facebook page.

Unfortunately, CMT will not be pursuing a second season of Working Class. We’re sad to see it go, but you can still catch Melissa Peterman in new episodes of The Singing Bee.

What do you think? Did you like the show? Are you sorry that Working Class won’t be back for a second season?

    I really hate to see this show canceled. It was a nice way to end a hectic week, with some good laughs. Very funny and I liked the chemistry of the characters. Such a shame it wasn’t given a chance with a second season.

    What a big mistake. That show was great. Not many enjoyable TV on Friday nights and this filled the spot for me. I can’t believe it! The network didn’t give it much of a chance. I am very disappointed@!!!

    Sorry this show was cancelled. It was a great light hearted comedy. Loved the cast.
    I hope another station will pick up this show. Maybe TV Land.

    Really!!?? A nice show the family can watch and it gets cancelled. Why not try it in another time slot first before cancelling? Great people, great show, give it another chance.

    I love this show!! I want more of it! The cast is great and it is sooooooooooo funny! I don’t think that there was much promotion of the show. It was put between Big Red Neck Weddings and it had nothing to do with rednecks! It deserves another chance on a real TV station!! Bring it back!! TV Land would be a great choice- right now I don’t think they have any family sitcoms.

    I watched Working Class and am sorry to see it departing the airwaves. Particularly since it featured a “hometown” boy, Steve Kazee, from Eastern Kentucky. The show wasn’t the freshest concept for a sitcom by any means, but it was enjoyable to watch because of the talent involved. Farewell, my friend!
