What really doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, FX has decided not to move forward with a second season of The Comedians.
Executive producer/showrunner Ben Wexler made the announcement on his Twitter account:
#TheComedians is cancelled at FX. I could not be more proud of the work we all did.

The series received mixed reviews from both critics and viewers and never seemed to quite find its place. The series marked Billy Crystal’s first return to television since his work on the ABC series Soap from 1977-1981.
The Comedians follows a veteran comedian is reluctantly paired with a younger, edgier comedian for a late-night comedy sketch show.
