The comedy series The Moodys is ending its run on Fox after two seasons. The network confirmed the news on Friday.
The show’s cancelation was somewhat expected considering Fox removed the series from its schedule in April, midway through its second two. The three remaining episodes are expected to air later this month.
The Moodys starred Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins as a Chicago couple who welcome their three adult children—played by Francois Arnaud, Chelsea Frei, and Jay Baruchel—home for Christmas. The second season followed the family’s day-to-day lives and occasional gatherings.
According to Deadline, the decision to ax The Moodys was made because of the show’s poor ratings. The first season had a strong audience and regularly attracted more than two million viewers, which prompted Fox to order new episodes. But the ratings dipped in season two, barely topping one million viewers on average.
The Moodys was based on the acclaimed Australian comedy A Moody Christmas, which premiered in 2012 and followed the eponymous family during six years of Christmas celebration. The original was followed by a second series, which aired in 2014 and focused on the family’s celebration of various other holidays, including Easter and Australia Day.
