Unexpected exits: Shows sent packing after happy renewals

In the world of television, the journey of a show from renewal to cancellation can be a rollercoaster ride of emotions for both creators and fans alike. Despite the elation and relief that comes with securing another season, some shows find themselves facing an unexpected and untimely demise. And that was the fate of some shows recently.

Neil Patrick Harris’ Uncoupled will not return


Bupkis will not return for the second season. Comedian Pete Davidson has confirmed that he has opted not to continue with his semi-autobiographical comedy, which had previously been renewed for a second season. “I’ve always seen Bupkis as a window into my life, since it is so personal and about my struggles and family,” Davidson said in a statement, adding, “After nearly a decade of my personal life being in the media I wanted a chance to tell my story my way. Of all the work I’ve ever done, Bupkis is by far what I’m most proud of. I am so grateful to Lorne Michaels and Broadway Video, Peacock, Universal Television and the amazing cast and writers for helping me create something honest, funny and heartfelt. I do also feel that this part of my life is finished.”
