It’s time for the aliens to go home. ABC has cancelled The Neighbors after two seasons and 44 episodes.
A family sitcom, The Neighbors follows the Weaver clan as they try to live in a beautiful gated community that’s filled with alien visitors from the planet Zabvron. The ensemble castmembers are Jami Gertz, Lenny Venito, Simon Templeman, Toks Olagundoye, Tim Jo, Clara Mamet, Ian Patrick, Isabella Cramp, and Max Charles.
After a first season of mediocre ratings, the series could have been cancelled last May. However, ABC decided to stick with it and scheduled it on Friday nights. Expectations on Fridays are lower but The Neighbors’ ratings ended up being too low for a third season renewal.
Castmate Olagundoye tweeted the news, “Tweeps, I have known since last night, but was not able to share the news until it was announced publicly. #TheNeighbirs has been cancelled”
What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be a third season? If you ran the network, would you have cancelled this show?
This show was clever and funny. How can you yank a show when the whole premise has changed. The aliens are staying on earth, I’d love to see how it all plays out. PLEASE BRING IT BACK! There’s so much crap on tv these days, let’s get back to basics and bring back humor and lightheartedness.
