FOX has officially decided to part ways with historical comedy Making History after one season. The freshman, whose original 13-episode order was cut to nine before premiere, debuted earlier this year to soft ratings and never produced the type of rapturous reviews that a broadcast network would need in order to make a show its passion project.
From Julius Sharpe (The Showbiz Show with David Spade) and executive produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Last Man on Earth), Making History followed Dan Chambers (Adam Pally), a man who discovered time travel and, instead of informing the world at large and cashing in on this tremendous discovery, uses it to regularly travel to the 1700s to spend time with a colonial woman he’s fallen for. Thought of as brilliantly funny and immensely sociable in this new environment, Dan inadvertently oversteps his boundaries and finds himself forced to bring a colleague into his secret to ensure that history isn’t changed because of his actions.
In addition to Pally, Making History starred Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl), Yassir Lester (Girls), John Gemberling (Marry Me), and Neil Casey (Inside Amy Schumer).
The series finale of Making History is set to air later this month on FOX. The network will unveil its fall 2017 schedule on Monday, May 15th.
