Following six seasons, CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls is well and truly broke. In a batch of renewals on the network — with comedies such as The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, Mom Kevin Can Wait, Man with a Plan and Superior Donuts getting preferential treatment — the Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs-led show has been shown the door.
#2BrokeGirls kicked off back in 2011 and followed the story of two waitresses who try to raise money to start their own business. Upon release, the show experienced a meteoric rise in ratings, swiftly becoming one of the best comedies on TV and eventually earning Warner Bros. (who produced) a dizzying $1.7 million an episode from TBS alone. Relive where it all began in the Season 1 preview below:
Sadly, whereas once the #comedy averaged around seven million viewers, 2017 saw a different story with a significant drop in audience numbers. And following failed negotiations between CBS and Warner Bros., the network decided to bid a fine farewell to the series once and for all. Taking to social media, actress Kat Dennings shared her gratitude for being a part of such a "wonderful" #TV show, saying:
"We’ve had a wonderful six season as Max and Caroline and we thank all of you for watching and enjoying it along with us. We are so proud of our time on '2 Broke Girls' and of all the things this experience has given us, the most treasured is our lifelong friendship."
It's always a sad story when a beloved show isn't renewed but on the positive side, after six seasons, at least it gives some of our favorite actors and actresses the opportunity to extend their talent to other pastures. We'll miss you girls!
How sad are you that '2 Broke Girls' has been cancelled?
