It is being reported that ABC has cancelled United We Fall after just one season. The sad news comes two weeks following the comedy's eight-episode freshman run, which came to an end on August 26.

The move does not come as a total surprise, as the show ultimately garnered average reviews and so-so ratings. Originally slated to air as a mid-season entry last spring, the half-hour series ended up being put on the backburner for a burn off during the summer months.

United We Fall series follows Jo and Bill, the parents of two young children who are trying to get through each day as a functioning family. Bill's judgmental live-in mother and Jo's large Latinx Catholic family are constantly critical of them, but Bill and Jo always have each other's backs, united against everyone - other parents, teachers, coaches, co-workers - and especially their kids.
