The ax fell on a comedy series that has been one of a handful of multicamera comedies running outside the broadcast networks. Variety reports that Netflix pulled the plug on the Kathy Bates cannabis dispensary sitcom “Disjointed” after one season.
Along with Bates, the series starred Aaron Moten, Elizabeth Alderfer, Tone Bell, Elizabeth Ho, Dougie Baldwin, Chris Redd, Betsy Sodaro, Nicole Sullivan, and Michael Trucco.
“The show received a 20-episode first-season order at the streamer in 2016, with the first half of the season debuting this past August and the second half premiering in January,” Variety notes. “Chuck Lorre and ‘Daily Show’ alum David Javerbaum served as writers and executive producers on the series, with Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. Television producing.”
Variety notes that with the cancellation of “Disjointed,” which received a lukewarm (at best) reception from critics, Netflix now airs three multicamera comedies: “The Ranch,” “Fuller House,” and “One Day at a Time.”
