The Odd Couple just got hit with an eviction warning.
CBS won’t be ordering more episodes of the sitcom reboot’s current Season 3, our sister site Deadline is reporting. The season will run for 13 episodes, the same length as the previous two seasons. It’s not officially cancelled, but ratings for the remaining five episodes will have to improve — by a lot — to justify a fourth season.
The Odd Couple stars Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon as the latest incarnation of classically mismatched roommates Oscar Madison and Felix Unger. Neil Simon’s original Tony-winning play inspired a 1968 film as well as the beloved 1970s ABC series starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall; there was also a 1982-83 ABC series called The New Odd Couple, which co-starred the recently departed Ron Glass as Felix.
CBS’s current Odd Couple reboot airs Mondays at 9:30/8:30c, after 2 Broke Girls.
Should The Odd Couple return for a fourth season? Or is it time for something new? Speak up in the comments.
