NBC is done with Welcome to Sweden according to executive producer and star Greg Poehler. He broke the news today via Instagram (see below).
On Welcome to Sweden, a former money manager to the stars (Poehler) decides to follow his Swedish love (Josephine Bornebusch) when she decides to move back to her native country. It’s a big culture shock for him and he does his best to win over her unusual family. The rest of the cast includes Lena Olin, Claes Månsson, Patrick Duffy, Illeana Douglas, Christopher Wagelin, and Per Svensson. Guests this season include Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Neve Campbell, Jason Priestley, Jack Black, and Paul Simon.
The sitcom drew low ratings last summer but the network picked it up for another season, thanks in part to the show already being renewed in Sweden.
This year, the ratings have been truly terrible. NBC will fill the Sunday timeslot with episodes of Hollywood Game Night. It’s unclear what will become of the remaining six episodes of Sweden.
What do you think? Do you like Welcome to Sweden? Do you think that it should have been cancelled? Would you have watched the remaining episodes — or a third season?
