It is being reported that Fox has cancelled The Cool Kids after just one season. The news is a bit of a surprise, as the comedy had a fairly decent freshman outing. Its final episode airs tonight.

The half-hour series premiered last fall and got off to a strong start. Just three weeks into its run, the network added nine episodes to its initial 13-episode order for a total of 22. Airing Fridays following Last Man Standing, the show helped Fox come out on top among adults 18-49 in the 8:00pm hour on many nights.

The Cool Kids follows a rag-tag trio of friends living in a retirement community. And because of their advanced age, they are willing to break any and every rule to have a bit of fun. Uniting them is their shared belief that they're not done yet, and together they're going to make the third act of their lives the craziest one yet.
