Say goodbye to Natesville! Fox has canceled TV series Raising Hope after four seasons on the air and three Primetime Emmy nominations.
An executive producer on the series, Mike Mariano, shared the news earlier today (March 10) in a statement.
“On behalf of myself, [fellow writer] Greg Garcia, and Raising Hope’s amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons,” he wrote (via TVLine). “We planned our Season 4 finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”
The show will come to a close during a one-hour finale on April 4. The first half-an-hour will air “How I Met Your Mullet,” an episode guest starring Lesley Nicol (better known as Mrs. Patmore of Downton Abbey) and then “The Father Daughter Dance” starring Arrested Development’s Jeffrey Tambor as Virginia's (Martha Plimpton) dad. Also lending his mega-watt name to the series’s ending is musician Kenny Loggins.
All that in mind, we’d say there’s a pretty good chance this send-off to the Chance family will be a good one. Tune into see for yourself at 9 p.m. April 4 on Fox.
