It’s end of watch for Angie and her team. To little surprise, TBS has cancelled the offbeat and low-rated comedy series, Angie Tribeca. It won’t be back for a fifth season.
Angie Tribeca stars Rashida Jones in the title role. The cast also includes Jere Burns, Andrée Vermeulen, Bobby Cannavale, and Kiersey Clemons. Guest stars in season four include Kathryn Hahn, Rose Byrne, Anjelica Huston, Gillian Jacobs, Carl Reiner, Harry Hamlin, Taran Killam, Eliza Coupe, Deon Cole, Jimmy Tatro, Dove Cameron, Isla Fisher, Heather Graham, and Carol Burnett. The police sitcom follows Angie, a detective with lone-wolf tendencies. The fourth season kicked off 20 years after the law did Angie wrong. She returned with her team to fight for what’s right, or so they think.
The fourth season of Angie Tribeca averaged a 0.08 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 266,000 viewers. Compared to season three that’s down by 70% and 53%, respectively. The last episode aired on December 30, 2018.
The cancellation comes as no surprise as some members of the cast have already moved onto other projects. What’s perhaps more surprising is that the series lasted as long as it did with such low ratings. The cable channel had a very unorthodox strategy for Angie Tribeca, sometimes releasing whole seasons in a marathon prior to doling out the episodes in a regular weekly timeslot.
A few weeks ago, TBS officially cancelled fellow comedy series Wrecked and for now, the fate of Greg Garcia’s The Guest Book is unknown. The latter finished airing its second season in December. This leaves The OG, The Detour, and Search Party as TBS’ active original scripted comedies.
