FXX Cancels ‘Man Seeking Woman’ After Three Seasons

“Man Seeking Woman” has been canceled after three seasons, TheWrap has learned.

FXX has decided not to renew the Jay Baruchel-led comedy for a fourth season a month after the conclusion of the show’s low-rated third season. Including seven days of delayed viewing, Season 3 of “Man Seeking Woman” averaged just 367,000 total viewers per week.

The sitcom follows Josh Greenberg (Baruchel) as he soldiers through the life-and-death stakes of dating. The series also stars Eric Andre (“The Eric Andre Show”) as Mike, Josh’s confident and daring best friend; and Britt Lower (“Sisters”) as Liz, Josh’s intimidating older sister.

The critically acclaimed third season also introduced “How to Get Away With Murder” alum Katie Findlay as Baruchel’s fiancee.

“Man Seeking Woman” is based on executive producer Rich’s book of short stories, “The Last Girlfriend on Earth.” Jonathan Krisel, Andrew Singer, Ian Maxtone-Graham and Lorne Michaels are also executive producers. The series hails from Broadway Video and is produced by FX Productions.

Jay Baruchel on ‘Man Seeking Woman’ Season 3 Reboot: ‘This Is the Season We’ve Earned’

“Man Seeking Woman” basically rebooted itself for its ambitious third season, but the cast and executive producers say it will be their best season yet.

“One of the things that makes it so good is that we’re never content to rest on our laurels and just do what we did a season prior,” star Jay Baruchel said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday. “This is the season we’ve earned.”

This year, the FXX comedy abandoned its exploration of modern dating and courtship, instead choosing to explore a longterm adult relationship in it’s first completely serialized season. “How to Get Away With Murder’s” Katie Findlay joined the cast this season as Baruchel’s fiancee, and she receives nearly as much of the show’s attention as Baruchel himself.

“I told [FX CEO John Landgraf] we wanted to be way more ambitious this year … that we wanted to examine an adult relationship from it’s inception all the way to the wedding day,” series creator Simon Rich said. “And Landgraf said, ‘Cool.’”

“The amazing thing about working for this network is you have the freedom to take enormous creative risks,” he said, “I can’t express how grateful we are to get to make this show … We’ve all worked on a lot of projects in our lives and the opportunity to make something you really, really believe in and love, it’s a rare one.”

This time around, Baruchel’s character actually has a girlfriend — though it seems their bond might be in jeopardy. In addition to an uncomfortable family dinner, the 30-second spot features a robot, an explosion and a woodland creature that seems lifted directly out of “Where the Wild Things Are.” Eric André, Britt Lower and Maya Erskine all co-star in the show, which first premiered in early 2015.
