Is the End Coming for Cable Comedy Series?

Oct 19, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A sitcom that has had a good run on cable appears to be winding down, with Nellie Andreeva reporting on Deadline.com that the upcoming  seventh season of Comedy Central’s “Workaholics” is expected to be the show’s last.

Andreeva notes that the show is in the middle of a two-season pickup, and while Comedy Central has yet to announce anything, the cable channel is not commenting on the show’s fate.

Cast members have been freed up to take new jobs, Andreeva notes, with Anders Holm, who plays Anders “Ders” Torfinn Holmvik on “Workaholics,” set to star in “Pigeon,” a single-camera comedy that has just received a put pilot commitment from Fox.

Holm will play private eye Simon Pigeon in the new project, which comes from ABC Studios and is written by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky.
