Oscar and Felix, consider this your official eviction notice.
CBS has formally cancelled The Odd Couple after three seasons, TVLine has learned.
The writing had been on the wall for the Matthew Perry/Thomas Lennon-led sitcom for months. Back in November, the network opted not to order an additional back-nine episodes for the series’ third season, capping it at just 13. What’s more, co-star Yvette Nicole Brown has already moved on; the Community vet is a series regular on ABC’s new comedy The Mayor.
Based on Neil Simon’s original Tony-winning play, which went on to inspire a 1968 film as well as the beloved 1970s ABC series with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall, Perry and Lennon starred as the latest incarnation of classically mismatched roommates Oscar Madison and Felix Unger. Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), Lindsay Sloane (Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) and Wendell Pierce (Treme) co-starred.
