‘Deadbeat’ canceled by Hulu after three seasons, Tyler Labine confirms

hulu -The third season of “Deadbeat,” as it turns out, looks to also be the comedy’s last. It’s a shame, but based on what star Tyler Labine said in response to a question on Twitter, the show has been canceled.

One of the biggest reasons why the show is going to be missed is because of its bravery, but at the time, it was also especially easy to love something that managed to get guest-star appearances out of Samantha Bee, Fred Armisen, Jason Biggs, and many others. It was also one of Hulu’s earlier forays into original series, and while we’ve certainly been advocating over time for many show created elsewhere to head to Hulu, we don’t want to see their lineup of originals trimmed down either.

One of the reasons why cancellation announcements do tend to be a little more stunning here than with broadcast networks is because of streaming providers’ ultimate reluctances to really offer much in the way out data about many of their shows. Therefore, we don’t really know how well they are faring other than if they are renewed or canceled.

Ultimately, we just hope that Labine finds something else soon worthy of his talents. Sure, there is a part us interested in seeing a revival for “Reaper,” but at present, we don’t exactly think the odds of this happening are altogether high, even in this age of revivals.

Once there is some more news when it comes to current / potential Hulu programming and its long-term fate, we will have that for you here. Stay tuned.
