Word is out that Showtime has cancelled Work in Progress after two seasons. Executive producer Lilly Wachowski took to Twitter with the news, writing a series of posts expressing her disappointment that the comedy was not getting picked up.

The half-hour series premiered in 2019 and has garnered a healthy amount of praise from both critics and viewers. It is also currently nominated for a 2022 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. Unfortunately, it was one of the cable network's lowest-rated series, and its audience numbers in Season 2 did not warrant a renewal.

Co-created and written by Abby McEnany, Work in Progress follows Abby, who is played by McEnany in a semi-autobiographical role, a 45-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke with OCD whose despair and bad luck unexpectedly finds her in a new and vibrantly-transformative relationship with a young trans guy.
