NBC Cancels Working the Engels

Working the Engels Cancelled

Working the Engels… no longer is.

NBC has cancelled the Canadian-made family/legal comedy, pulling it from the schedule after just five episodes.

Engels’ Canadian broadcaster Global TV, meanwhile, is not expected to order any half-hours beyond its already aired 12-episode first season.

NBC will double-up on the Greg Poehler-created Welcome to Swedenwhich was already renewed for Season 2 — on Thursdays at 9/8c, to fill Engels‘ void.

Fellow Peacock network summer shows The Night Shift and Undateable received pick-ups for a second run, while the jury is still out on Taxi Brooklyn.

  1. This guy says:

    cute, but this isnt surprising

  2. Missy Kelly says:

    Taxi Brooklyn is only NBC show I am watching.

  3. Matt says:

    This was a thing?

  4. Rich says:

    Taxi Brooklyn is also the only summer show I’ve been watching on NBC.

  5. Lisa Benwitz says:

    Andrea Martin is such a funny, charming woman–it’s so frustrating that she can’t seem to find a well-written vehicle in which to display her talents. The fact that anyone at the network thought this show had any redeeming qualities whatsoever amazes me. Then again, I feel the same about the Sweden show–but with Amy Poehler behind it, the network is supporting it anyway, which is a shame.

  6. Cousin O'yaya says:

    I didn’t even know this was a show , thats bad marketing on NBC’s part

  7. Marcus T. says:

    Don’t see the point in not showing the rest of the episodes, it had it’s cute moment’s

  8. Jack says:

    First time I hear of this show then it gets cancelled. Ooookay. I like Kacey Rohl because of Hannibal.

  9. lechatnoir says:

    Told ya ! it was so beige and dull as dishwasher . It had to go.

  10. TV Gord says:

    Canada’s five-week long embarrassment is finally over! I was embarrassed to have it airing here, but to foist on you guys? That’s no way to treat friends. ;-)

  11. Tran says:

    At least Welcome to Sweden is way better than WTE. Still worried about the fate of Taxi Brooklyn.

  12. Matty says:

    The Night Shift and Undateable were two of my favorite shows this summer. I can’t wait for them to come back for their second seasons. Too bad it will be a long wait.

  13. Bradster says:

    I’ve never even heard of this show…

  14. I know a lot about TV but I’ve NEVER heard about this show. That’s saying something.

  15. Eludium Q36 says:

    Engels was a quirky, guilty pleasure comedy but I found that refreshing and like many others I had a tv-crush on Kacey Rohl (“Jenna”). Hope the cast lands successfully elsewhere.

  16. Emma says:

    I have never heard of this show before today… not even here on TVline, as far as I know.
