NBC Cancels Comedy Series

Jul 29, 2015  •  Post A Comment

NBC is pulling the plug on a prime-time sitcom after the show failed to gain traction in the ratings. The AP reports that the network has canceled “Welcome to Sweden.”

The news comes two weeks into the series’ second season, with NBC still deciding what it will do with the unaired episodes.

The series stars Greg Poehler, the brother of Amy Poehler, who is an executive producer on the show.

The show was filmed in Sweden with U.S. and Swedish actors, and aired in Sweden as well as in the U.S.

NBC will move “Hollywood Game Night” into the show’s time slot while it decides on a longer-term plan.

  1. Really liked the show and as a tv reviewer, this is sad news. NBC could’ve done a far better job of promoting it the last year(which I don’t believe I ever saw any evidence of whatsoever from them IM0). A little promotion and patience and thoughtful sitcoms like this could potentially thrive.

  2. Interesting to hear. Sounds like a funny idea and show. Never heard of it. Did NBC even promote it?

  3. This is so unfortunate. I discovered Season 1 after it was over and watch on demand. it must have had zero promotion. I’m on NBC quite a bit and never heard of it. It was quirky and smart and a very good show.
