Coach has been sacked.
NBC has cancelled the followup to the ’90s comedy, starring Craig T. Nelson, our sister site Deadline reports.
The new series found Nelson’s Hayden being called out of retirement to serve as assistant coach to his and late wife Christine’s grown son, Tim, who was starting up a new team as the head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania.
Although the midseason project received a straight-to-series, 13-episode order, only a pilot was filmed. It was met with mixed results, with creative issues contributing to the show’s cancellation, per Deadline.
Earlier this month, TVLine reported that Pam Stone was set to reprise her role as ladies’ basketball coach Judy Watkins-Dybinski.
Barry Kemp, who created the original series, served as executive producer and writer on the continuation.
