Showtime has pulled the plug on the comedy series SMILF.
According to multiple outlets, the series, which is currently in its second season, will not continue on to a third.
The series was created by Frankie Shaw, who also starred and served as show runner. The series has been suspended following Shaw’s misconduct allegations.
Shaw has an overall deal with ABC Studios, to which an ABC Studios spokesperson said, “Frankie Shaw’s overall deal with ABC Studios has been suspended without pay while we review our options,”
“After weighing a variety of factors, Showtime has decided that SMILF will not move forward for a third season. The remainder of the second season will continue to air as scheduled on Showtime through its series finale on March 31. We remain extremely proud of the two seasons of SMILF, and thank Frankie Shaw for her singular voice and unique creation, as well as the dozens of writers, producers, actors, directors and crew members both in Los Angeles and on location in Boston, who contributed to this exceptional series.”
SMILF premiered in 2017 and did very well with the critics, earning a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for its first season.
