CBS' newest comedy, Broke, will not be returning for a second season. The cancellation was confirmed as the network announced its renewals this morning for the 2020-2021 season.

Broke premiered in April as a mid-season entry, but failed to gain much traction in both ratings and critical reception. The comedy is five episodes into its run and is expected to air all its remaining episodes as planned.

The series follows single mom Jackie, who is surprised when her estranged sister shows up at her door along with her rich husband and his loyal assistant. The couple have run into financial difficulties and the three of them are looking for a place to live. And while class differences might separate the women, the size of the house with the increased occupants tests the limits of their new living situation.
