NBC has cancelled sophomore comedy Welcome To Sweden, pulling the series from its schedule effective immediately. Word broke from creator and star Greg Poehler, who took to Instagram with a heartfelt post this afternoon thanking the fans and crew.

The import comedy was a mild success during its debut run, pulling in decent ratings for a summer series. Its fortunes took a turn for the worse this time around, however, with its numbers falling to less than half of what they were last year for all four of episodes aired.

Taking Welcome To Sweden's time slot this Sunday will be a rerun of Hollywood Game Night. The week following will begin NFL coverage.
