The current fourth season of the Starz basketball comedy will be its last, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The season finale on Sunday will now serve as a series finale.
“We have been fortunate to work with incredible talents like Mike O’Malley, the executive producers and our cast on this very special show for four seasons,” Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht said Tuesday in a statement. “While this may be the end of the Calloways’ story, we do believe that the themes Survivor’s Remorse confronted over the seasons, through a unique mix of humor and sober observation, will be appreciated for the insightful, heartfelt way they were addressed. We are proud of the show.”
Back in August of 2016, when Starz renewed Survivor’s Remorse for a fourth season, the premium cable network ordered 10 half-hour episodes. As of October 8th, only eight had aired. Check out these remaining descriptions from Starz press materials:
