What will happen to What Just Happened??!? FOX boss Michael Thorn recently spoke with Deadline about the future of the TV show.
Hosted by Fred Savage, the comedy series is a fandom-filled aftershow that’s devoted to a fictional television drama series called The Flare. The cast also includes Taylor Tomlinson, Jon Cassar, Carrie Havel, Bethany Cosentino, and Bobb Bruno.
During this year’s summer TCA press conference, FOX chief Michael Thorn told Deadline a second season of What Just Happened??! would be “challenging.” The show has not been cancelled yet, but it seems likley.
The comedy, which debuted in June, is currently averaging a .23 rating in the 18-49 demo and 682,000 viewers, making it one of FOX’s lowest-rated new series for the 2018-19 season.
However, even though What Just Happened??! hasn’t been a huge success, Thorn did say it’s been a great experiment:
While it didn’t break through in the ratings, it has been a great calling card for us in the comedy community where many creators and comedians have told us: ‘I can’t believe you tried that show, that’s amazing. Can I be on it if it’s on again?’”
What do you think? Have you seen What Just Happened??!? Would you watch another season?
