It is being reported that Fox has cancelled Rel after just one season. The sad news comes three months after comedy ended its run, with the now-series finale airing on January 13.

The half-hour series premiered last fall as part of Fox's 2018-2019 lineup, garnering decidedly mixed reviews from critics. After drawing a sizable audience on night one, ratings slipped considerably for the remainder of its 12-episode season.

Co-created by comedian Lil Rel Howery and loosely-based on his own life, Rel follows a loving husband and father who has his world turned upside down when he finds out his wife has been having an affair with his barber. After his kids move to Cleveland with their mother, Rel starts the difficult task of rebuilding his life.
