Regardless of a sharper third season and a slew of notable visitor stars, truTV has determined to cancel the Denver-set sitcom “These Who Can’t.”
That’s in response to its co-stars, Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy, who took to social media right this moment to disclose the dangerous information to followers.
“And that’s a wrap on #ThoseWhoCant,” Cayton-Holland wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning. “From the underside of our hearts, thanks to everybody concerned with the present and to everybody who ever watched. I couldn’t be prouder of the three seasons of tv we made and the world we created. Smoot Excessive Eternally!”

Cayton-Holland, Orvedahl and Roy, also referred to as the Grawlix comedy troupe, met and hatched the concept for “These Who Can’t” in Denver earlier than promoting it to Amazon Studios and, later, truTV. The present follows them and co-star Maria Thayer as they play inept, spirited academics at Denver’s fictional Smoot Excessive College.
Regulars on the present included stand-up buddies akin to Rory Scovel (Principal Geoffrey Quinn), Kyle Kinane (Rod Knorr) and Patton Oswalt (Denver mayor Gil Nash), in addition to Sonya Eddy (Tammy) and Cheri Oteri (Cattie Goodman) in supporting roles. Visitor stars ran the gamut from recognizable film-and-TV faces Sarah Michelle Gellar and Peter Stormare to Mark Hoppus (Blink-182) and Henry Rollins.
“It’s positively a bummer,” Roy mentioned in an emotional video posted on his Twitter account. “We’ve been doing the present in a technique or one other for six and a half years.”
When it debuted on truTV, some critics (together with this one) hailed the present for example of a national-quality product being sourced from someplace apart from Los Angeles or New York Metropolis. Though the sitcom was filmed in Los Angeles, Cayton-Holland continued to reside right here between manufacturing duties and run his Denver-based Excessive Plains Comedy Competition, whereas Orvedahl and Roy decamped to Los Angeles.
The present was reviewed positively upon its 2016 premiere, however the greater than two-year hole between the second and third seasons had followers (and even the present’s creators) questioning if truTV would renew it. “These Who Can’t” represented truTV’s first experiment with a scripted sequence. The Turner-owned community has since adopted with reveals like “I’m Sorry” and “Tacoma FD.”
“The very last thing you noticed our characters do on #ThoseWhoCant was run off in the direction of the sound of an ice cream truck. Like kids,” Cayton-Holland wrote on Twitter. “We didn’t know that will be the ultimate second of the sequence, however it’s really sort of excellent.”
“It was a dream job, and also you don’t get too lots of these in life,” Orvedahl wrote on Twitter Wednesday.
It is exhausting to convey in a tweet how a lot enjoyable it was to make These Who Cannot and what number of nice individuals we met doing it. It was a dream job, and you aren’t getting too lots of these in life. Due to everybody who supported us, and hopefully we might be doing one thing enjoyable for you quickly!
