TV Land aired the final episode of the family comedy “Jennifer Falls” last August, and the cable network has decided that after the 10-episodes that underscored its first season, the show will no longer be back for Season 2. Read on for the details to this news story.

The single-camera comedy series starring Jaime Pressly, “Jennifer Falls,” has been confirmed cancelled by TV Land, according to Deadline and various news sources. The show was about a mother with a teenage daughter who had to move back to the place where she grew up after being fired from her high-profile job in the big city.

“Jennifer Falls” started its run last June 4, 2014 and ended on Aug. 14, 2014 after a 10-episode feature. The series also starred Jessica Walter (as Jennifer’s mother), Ethan Suplee (as Jennifer’s brother), Missi Pyle (as Jennifer’s best friend), Nora Kickpatrick (as Jennifer’s sister-in-law) and Dylan Gelula (as Jennifer’s teenager). Matthew Carlson was the series creator, with Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis as the executive producers.

“Jennifer Falls” was the first single-camera comedy series on the network, which, for years, has been sticking to multicamera comedies. In fact, the show was original set for multicamera before it was tweaked.

The cancellation was due to the fact that the series never picked up with ratings. In its season finale, it only averaged 610,000 viewers, according to the news.

With this, viewers will never know what will happen to two cliffhangers the show left during the season finale. What would have happened to Jennifer finding out that her long-lost father is still seeing his mother? How would Stephanie face Wayne, now that he knows she has been lying to him about being on the pill, which is why they cannot have a baby?

The news of “Jennifer Falls” not getting renewed followed TV Land’s announcement that it will be picking up three new series for 2015. The cable network has “Impastor” (with Michael Rosenbaum), “Younger” with Sutton Foster and “Teachers.”

Meanwhile, Pressly will have a recurring role in a similarly themed comedy series, “Mom,” on CBS this season.

And there you have it for “Jennifer Falls” being officially canceled by TV Land after one season. For more news about your favorite stars, movies and television shows, check back to Movie News Guide (MNG) regularly.
