Comedy Central has cancelled the animated show Ugly Americans after only two seasons. After a lot of time on the fence about whether or not the show would be renewed for a third season, the network could not find enough outside funding to keep the show running. Producers David M. Stern, Daniel Powell, and Colin Lewis posted a statement on the show’s Facebook page confirming the cancellation and giving some additional information about why this came to be.
In addition to the lack of the needed financing from outside sources, the ratings simply were not high enough for Comedy Central to allow a third season to be aired. Though the show itself will now be off the air, the creators are exploring other options to keep their characters alive. Devin Clark, the show’s creator mentioned a possible movie, graphic novel, or web shorts to keep his characters relevant in any way possible. Though nothing is confirmed or even in the works yet, Clark and his team will continue to post any updates on the status of the Ugly Americans characters on the Facebook page.
As for the voices of the animated series, comedians such as Natasha Leggero, Kurt Metzger, Pete Holmes, and Larry Murphy have not given any information as of right now pertaining to any future plans or involvement they might have with these other potential mediums.
