July 1 (UPI) -- Comedian Jerrod Carmichael and NBC have announced the sitcom The Carmichael Show has been canceled after three seasons.
"For three seasons [okay 2.5,] I got to make a show that I love with my friends," Carmichael said in a statement to Deadline.com Friday. "It's something I've wanted to do since I was 13. Now, I'm excited to go make other things that I love. Thank you to every person who worked on or watched The Carmichael Show."
"We are enormously proud of The Carmichael Show and Jerrod's talent and vision to do a classic family sitcom that also taps into issues and relevant stories from the real world. We thank and salute the cast, crew, and producers -- and especially Jerrod -- for three critically-acclaimed seasons," NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt and NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke told Variety in their own prepared remarks.
The entertainment industry trade newspaper said the show is ending because Carmichael is ready to move onto other projects.
