October 6, 2023
Word is out that Fox has cancelled Welcome to Flatch after two seasons. Coming eight months after wrapping its sophomore run, the news was announced by showrunner Jenny Bicks, who adapted the comedy for US audiences.
"It is with a broken heart and a Barbarita that I announce the untimely demise of Welcome To Flatch," wrote Bicks on X, formerly known as Twitter. "I am fiercely proud of the show and all the insanely talented folks who made it happen. Thank you @paulfeig, my partner in crime."
In Welcome to Flatch, a documentary crew aims to explore the lives of residents in a small American town, and they come across the midwestern town of Flatch. With its many eccentric personalities, it's the type of place you want to visit - and maybe even stay.

2/2 thank you to all the fans who loved us, including but not limited to The NY Times, the LA Times and my parents. Flatch will always live on in our hearts. Remember to be kind to one another and if you want a pontoon boat, buy it. Xx— Jenny Bicks (@JennyBicks) October 6, 2023
But it was stupid fun.. which no one makes any more. Or rather.. US audiences don't seem to get any more because they are too concerned with (pointless) political arguments.
We just gotta accept the fact that Fox has to make room for terrific shows like: Dark Angel, Titus, Undeclared, Action, That 80's Show, Wonderfalls, Fastlane, Andy Richter Controls The Universe, Skin, Girls Club, Cracking Up, The Pits, Firefly, Get Real, Freaky Links, Wanda At Large, Costello, The Lone Gunmen, A Minute With Stan Hooper, Normal, Ohio, Pasadena, Harsh Realm, Keen Eddie, The Street, American Embassy, Cedric The Entertainer, The Tick, Louie, and Greg The Bunny. Lois: Is there no hope? Peter: Well, I suppose if ALL those shows go down the tubes we might have a shot.
