Why was The Carmichael Show cancelled? Recently, NBC boss Jennifer Salke explained why the network axed the TV show after three seasons, Deadline reports.
Loosely inspired by the life of star and co-creator Jerrod Carmichael, the comedy follows a North Carolina family that consists of Jerrod (Carmichael), his old-school dad, Joe (David Alan Grier), devout mom, Cynthia (Loretta Devine), progressive girlfriend, Maxine (Amber Stevens West), and brother Bobby (Lil Rel Howery).
We loved the show and the cast and Jerrod from the start. It’s been a labor of love. Everyone was hoping the show would perform and grow. We saw a great stable audience slowly building with critical attention, but it remained in a challenging situation. We looked at the show with Jerrod, (and asked) what’s the long term plan? Is there a chance for real big success? Maybe it’s best to let the show end.”
