Fox is further paring down its live action comedy roster.
The network has canceled Welcome to Flatch after two seasons. The mockumentary series, created by Jenny Bicks and based on the BBC series This Country, finished its second season in February. The series also counts Paul Feig among its executive producers.
“While audience response was not as strong as we had hoped, we were thrilled with the creativity of the enormously talented Jenny Bicks and Paul Feig, as well as the outstanding, dedicated cast and crew they assembled,” Fox said in a statement. “We look forward to collaborating with them again in the future and are thankful for all of our partners at Lionsgate, Jenny’s Perkins Street Productions, Paul’s Feigco Entertainment, BBC Studios’ Angie Stephenson, and Charlie Cooper and Daisy May Cooper.”
Welcome to Flatch follows the eccentric residents of a small Ohio town, centered on two cousins (Sam Straley and Holmes). The cast also includes Justin Linville, Taylor Ortega, Krystal Smith, Aya Cash, Seann William Scott and Jaime Pressly.
The series was one of the least watched on Fox for both of its seasons. In 2022-23, it averaged 1.24 million viewers and a 0.28 rating among adults 18-49 after seven days of delayed viewing (not including streaming).
Along with Bicks and Feig, Welcome to Flatch’s executive producers are Stephenson and Charlie and Daisy May Cooper, who created This Country. Lionsgate Television, BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm and Fox Entertainment produced the series.
