FOX has revealed that it has cancelled the comedy series, “Welcome To Flatch”, after two seasons; the series was originally shared in the United States between FOX and Hulu. The series is an American remake of the British comedy series, “This Country”.
The half-hour series saw a documentary crew go to a small town to study young adults and their current concerns. Their focus is the daily lives of cousins Kelly (Chelsea Holmes, “At What Cost?”) and Shrub Mallet (Sam Straley, “The Kids Are Alright”) and their idiosyncratic surroundings.
“Welcome To Flatch” also stars Seann William Scott (“Lethal Weapon,” “American Pie”) and Aya Cash (“The Boys,” “You’re the Worst”). In addition to Taylor Ortega (“Kim Possible”), YouTuber Krystal Smith and Justin Linville (“What We Do in the Shadows”).
According to a FOX spokesperson:
“The comedy ‘Welcome to Flatch’ will not be returning to Fox for a third season. While audience response was not as strong as we had hoped, we were thrilled with the creativity of the enormously talented Jenny Bicks and Paul Feig, as well as the outstanding, dedicated cast and crew they assembled. We look forward to collaborating with them again in the future and are thankful for all of our partners at Lionsgate, Jenny’s Perkins Street Productions, Paul’s Feigco Entertainment, BBC Studios’ Angie Stephenson, and Charlie Cooper and Daisy May Cooper.
The future of the show has been in doubt for a while, as earlier this year. While cancellations aren’t uncommon, following the resolution of the writer’s strike, executives have been looking to cut back on expenses due to a change throughout the industry.
