No Season 5 for the family comedy.
May 10, 2019
It is being reported that CBS has cancelled Life in Pieces. The sad news comes five episodes into the comedy's fourth season, which was moved to air in the mid-season this year for the first time.
The half-hour series has been a fairly consistent performer for the network, airing behind Mom, which acts as a reliable lead-in. The late season premiere this time around, though, had raised suspicions that the show was nearing the end of its run.
Life in Pieces follows three generations of the Short family, with each episode telling separate short stories that each focus on a different group of the clan. New episodes resume airing on May 23.

This is such a shame. I LOVE this show and it’s formatting. The way they manage to break the episode up into different segments while still tying the shows storylines together is epic. Makes me sad

It's a shame. I really enjoy this show. I think we may see some young actors become huge stars in the future. Canceling this show so quickly is not the correct move. Maybe a good lead in would have helped. Going to miss it.

This was well made, funny and had charm. It was also original which is difficult to do these days in the world of sitcoms. Would be nice to see a different network pick it up. CBS never did feel like the right home for it.

I just gasped when I read this!!! I laugh out loud every episode and that is so rare these days. The writing was on the wall when it did not start with the fall line up but it came back so strong I was hopeful. CBSucks strikes again!!

Very sad to hear this. One of the funniest shows on television!

I hope CBS will reconsider. I really like this show. Very disappointed :-(

Great show, with wonderfully talented cast and a good ratings performer. I am guessing the suits at CBS are looking for a more "Diverse" family comedy. It is only a matter of time before the three major networks are off the air.

One of the best comedies on the air. Wonderful cast, consisting of both veteran actors and newbies. Quality broadcasting. My wife and I laughed consistently during each show. How can CBS cancel such an entertaining series? Very surprising decision. I wish another network would pick this up. Maybe Netflix. They get it!
