‘The Carmichael Show’ Ends After Three Seasons
NBC’s The Carmichael Show won’t be returning for a fourth season.
Earlier this month we reported that the show’s return is in limbo. Fast forward to the present day and the network announced the news shortly after creator and star Jerrod Carmichael revealed he was exiting the series, and as cast options were set to expire at the end of today. Carmichael released a statement today through his publicist.
For three seasons (okay 2.5), I got to make a show that I love with my friends. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was 13. Now, I’m excited to go make other things that I love. Thank you to every person who worked on or watched the Carmichael show.
20th Century Fox TV presidents Jonnie Davis and Howard Kurtzman said in a statement
The Carmichael Show was such a wonderful show that we choose to focus today not on its loss but on the three incredible seasons we had the pleasure to produce. We are thankful to the brilliant Jerrod Carmichael and his talented cast, and to showrunner Danielle Sanchez-Witzell, our fantastic writers and devoted production team. It’s a rarity that a comedy series tackles the social and political issues of the day in such a clever and hilariously funny way. This show was special, and we will miss it.
Comedian and cast mate Lil Rel Howery posted a statement about the show ending.
