Word is out that ABC has cancelled American Housewife after five seasons. The sad news comes roughly six weeks after the veteran comedy wrapped its run, with its March 31 episode now serving as its series ender.

The half-hour show stars Katy Mixon as an average wife and mother who is bringing up her family in the upper-class town of Westport, Connecticut. It premiered in 2016 and ended up becoming ABC's top-rated new comedy of the season.

The network moved the show to a few different time slots over the years, but it found a home on Wednesday nights since Season 4. Overall it was a fairly consistent performer during its time on the air, and recently surpassed the 100-episode milestone.
