Jim Gaffigan Show ending after two seasons
The Jim Gaffigan Show has run its course.
TV Land’s sitcom inspired by the life and family of comedian Jim Gaffigan will not be returning for a third season, he and his wife, showrunner Jeannie Gaffigan, announced Monday on social media.
“It is hard to say goodbye to this highly personal passion project, which we have nurtured and poured our hearts into for over five years,” Jim Gaffigan said of the show, which concluded its second season Sunday evening.
He called the experience “empowering, exhilarating and exhausting,” and said that the Gaffigans ultimately decided “the time commitment to make the quality of show we wanted was taking us away from our most important project, our five children.”
TV Land confirmed the news to EW and said in a statement, “We are really proud of The Jim Gaffigan Show and the amazing comedy that Jim, Jeannie, the cast, the creative team and JAX Media have made for us. After two great seasons, we have mutually agreed to not move forward with season three of the series. We have an incredible amount of respect for everyone involved, and are grateful to them for bringing their passion and dedication to The Jim Gaffigan Show.”
