It is being reported that ABC has cancelled Kevin (Probably) Saves the World after just one season. The news is not a complete surprise after the network previously declined to give the new drama a full season.

The hour-long series premiered as part of ABC's fall lineup last October, and while it received a mostly-positive reception from critics, it struggled to find an audience on Tuesday nights. In November the network extended the show's run by only three episodes, which raised eyebrows due to it being short of a typical back-order for a fall drama.

Jason Ritter stars as the titular character, Kevin Finn, who is a self-absorbed man down on his luck and on a perilous path to despair. When he heads back home to stay with his twin sister and niece, an unlikely celestial being appears to him and tasks him with a mission to save the world, giving Kevin a new purpose in life.
