It looks like class is cancelled for Those Who Can’t. Co-creator Ben Roy announced the truTV show has been cancelled after three seasons.
The comedy series centers on a group of trouble-makers at Smoots High School — the faculty. Spanish teacher Loren (Adam Cayton-Holland), gym teacher Andy (Andrew Orvedahl), history teacher Billy (Ben Roy), and school librarian Abbey (Maria Thayer) seem even less capable than the kids in their care.
On Twitter, co-creators Ben Roy, Adam Cayton-Howard, and Andrew Ovedahl confirmed Those Who Can’t will not be returning for a fourth season. Ratings for the truTV comedy have always been pretty low. Season three, which wrapped earlier this month, averaged .08 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 152,000 viewers.

And that’s a wrap on #ThoseWhoCant. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone involved with the show and to everyone who ever watched. I couldn’t be prouder of the three seasons of television we made and the world we created. Smoot High Forever! pic.twitter.com/Pcyw0f5gfT

It's hard to convey in a tweet how much fun it was to make Those Who Can't and how many great people we met doing it. It was a dream job, and you don't get too many of those in life. Thanks to everyone who supported us, and hopefully we will be doing something fun for you soon!
