Freeform Cancels Lonely Island-Produced Comedy ‘Alone Together’ After 2 Seasons

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Freeform has canceled its Lonely Island-produced comedy series, “Along Together” after two seasons.

“Alone Together” starred stand-up comedians Esther Povitsky (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) and Benji Aflalo (“Not Safe with Nikki Glaser”) as two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds trying to make their way in the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles. These two only find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship.

Chris D’Elia, Ginger Gonzaga, Edgar Blackmon and Nikki Glaser also starred. Povitsky and Aflalo wrote and executive produced the series alongside The Lonely Island trio of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, and Paul Mather and Becky Sloviter.
