On the comedy front, ABC only picked up two pilots in the works and they will replace two that have been cancelled. Only one of the network’s freshman comedies from the current season will be back in the fall.
Trophy Wife, which starred Malin Akerman, will not be coming back for a second season. That news was shared on Twitter first by stars Akerman and Marcia Gay Harden. Akerman thanked all the fans who tuned in, writing, “We had a blast! Sad to see it go but happy to have lifelong family out there.”
Thank u all for your loyalty and passion #TrophyWife fans. We had a blast! Sad to see it go but happy to have lifelong family out there. Xx
