Word is out that ABC has cancelled Mixed-ish after two seasons. The news comes ahead of next week's sophomore finale, with the comedy's May 18 episode now set to serve as its series closer.

Today's cancellation coincides with the network announcing that franchise mothership 'Black-ish' will be ending after its eighth season. As for Mixed-ish, it started out as a decent performer in 2019 but has seen its viewership fall off quite a bit in Season 2.

A spin-off prequel of 'Black-ish', the half-hour series follows Rainbow Johnson looking back at her early years growing up in a mixed-race family in the 1980s, after her parents moved them from a hippie commune to the suburbs to provide a better life for their family. Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they are not seen as black or white - leaving them with the constant dilemma of whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves.
