Fox has officially cancelled Raising Hope, the sitcom created by Greg Garcia. The show spent this season on Fridays, far from Fox’s usual Tuesday night comedies.
Raising Hope will finish with an hour-long finale on April 4, reports TheWrap. The first half is called “How I Met Your Mullet” and will feature Downton Abbey’s Leslie Nicol. The last episode, “The Father Daughter Dance,” will feature Jeffrey Tambor and singe Kenny Loggins.
“On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and Raising Hope’s amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons,” executive producer Mike Mariano said, notes The Hollywood Reporter. “We planned our season four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”
Raising Hope centered on the dysfunctional Chance family, whose life gets even more crazy when Jimmy brings home a daughter named Hope. It stars Lucas Neff, Shannon Woodward, Cloris Leachman, Martha Plimpton and Garrett Dillahunt.
The show was created by Emmy winner Garcia, who is also responsible for My Name Is Earl and Yes, Dear. He is the creator of CBS’ freshman sitcom The Millers with Will Arnett.
Fox has been busy early with renewing shows. New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project have all been renewed.
