CBS ‘2 Broke Girls’ Gets Surprise Cancellation After Six Seasons
The various renewals and cancellations from major networks haven’t strayed too far outside expectation, but it’s always odd of established series to face an abrupt end. So it is, that we eulogize CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, which endured an impressive six seasons, but won’t return for a seventh.
CBS dropped the news late Friday night, while The Hollywood Reporter claims Warner Bros. TV had attempted to negotiate for a thirteen-episode final run for the Kat Dennings-Beth Behrs comedy. As with a great many other cancellations this season, CBS apparently declined to renew the series over its lack of ownership.
More and more series are being produced with in-house studios, so as to limit licensing fees and control distribution, though CBS at least ordered its Big Bang Theory prequel Young Sheldon from Warner Bros. 2 Broke Girls first debuted in 2011 to fairly dismal reviews, but nonetheless averaged seven million total viewers in its sixth season.
Either way; be free, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs. Go and live your best lives.
