Fox Cancels ‘Raising Hope’ After 4 Seasons

Fox is pulling the plug on family comedy “Raising Hope” after four seasons.

The 20th Century Fox TV sitcom, created by Greg Garcia, will wrap with an hourlong finale on April 4.

The writing was on the wall for the show this season when “Hope” was moved to the low-traffic Friday 9:30 p.m. slot. Show revolving around a dysfunctional family that pulls together when the adult son winds up with an unexpected baby stars Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Cloris Leachman.

“On behalf of myself, 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,” said exec producer Mike Mariano. “We planned our Season Four 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.”
