FX Cancels ‘Married’ After Two Seasons

FX’s comedy “Married” has been canceled after two seasons.

Show creator Andrew Gurland tweeted the news Monday, thanking the cable network and the show’s viewers.

Starring Judy Greer and Nat Faxon, the comedy followed the pair who played a longtime married couple.

At this past Television Critics Assn. press tour, FX boss John Landgraf spoke about the show’s chances of renewal, saying that the cabler is pleased with the show’s creative direction, but a Season 3 pickup would depend on the numbers.

“For any of you who haven’t seen recent episodes of ‘Married,’ that show has also shown great creative improvement since its first season. We love the cast, Judy Greer and Nat Faxon and Brett Gelman and Sarah Burns, and we remain fans of Andrew Gurland’s distinctive take on marriage and family,” Landgraf said. “It’s too soon yet to assess the ratings performance of Season 2, but we really are pleased with the show qualitatively.”

However, “Married,” which premiered in September 2014, never grew much of an audience, averaging just 410,000 same-night viewers on Thursdays this summer and early fall. In Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, its October finale drew 593,000 total viewers and 388,000 adults 18-49.
