The Jim Gaffigan Show has been cancelled… by Jim Gaffigan himself?
The TV Land sitcom, which wrapped its second season on Sunday, will not return for Season 3, Gaffigan announced Monday afternoon on social media.
“After months of discussion, Jeannie [Gaffigan] and I have decided to make season 2 of The Jim Gaffigan Show the final season,” he said. “We realize this may surprise some and we don’t make this decision lightly. It is hard to say goodbye to this highly personal passion project, which we have nurtured and poured our hearts into for over five years… However the time commitment to make the quality of show we wanted was taking us away from our most important project, our five children. We are truly grateful for all the support friends on social media and television critics have given The Jim Gaffigan Show. Jeannie and I are excited to move forward with other creative pursuits.”
TV Land, meanwhile, said in a statement, “After two great seasons, we have mutually agreed to not move forward with season three of the series. We have an incredible amount of respect for everyone involved, and are grateful to them for bringing their passion and dedication to The Jim Gaffigan Show.”
