Well, it looks like the class will be dismissed for a long time.
On Friday, Mike O’Brien (the creator and executive producer) announced on his Twitter page that NBC has canceled the show after two seasons. He asks fans of the show to still tune in as there are four remaining episodes left.
The comedy starred Glenn Howerton as Jack Griffin, a disgraced Harvard philosophy professor who is forced to take a job in Toledo, Ohio, as a high school A.P. Biology teacher. But it’s upon realizing that he’s teaching bright kids; Jack decides to enlist them to get revenge on his rival, Miles. The cast also includes Jean Villepique, Paula Pell, and Patton Oswalt.
The rating for season two was averaging just above a 0.5 demo rating; which ranks second-lowest among all of NBC’s comedies (above only to the midseason debut of ‘Abby’s’).
I was a fan of the show since the network announced the pick-up and the cast with Howeton as the lead; but it was a really good ensemble cast that had really good chemistry with not only the teachers but the students and Howerton as well. It kind had that Magic School Bus that was Rated PG-13 feel to it. I had a bad feeling this was going to happen. Even seeing that the rest of the episodes of the season is gonna air after May sweeps says it all. But I do think that NBC will pick up ‘Abby’s’ for a second season, as they do like to give a second chance for shows like Great News. But I could be wrong as they did pick up a new series from Michael Schur.
