“Weird Loners” have officially been canceled by Fox after just a six-episode run. It was said that the comedy was axed because of its low ratings. The series reportedly attracted only 1.9 million viewers and a 0.7 A18-49 demo rating.
Together with “The Mindy Project,” “The Following,” “Mulaney,” “Red Band Society,” “Backstrom,” “Gracepoint,” and “Hieroglyph,” fans of “Weird Loners” were saddened to hear about the show’s early demise. We Got This Covered pointed out that the cancellation came as no surprise to anyone because of the show’s “pathetic” ratings. “Weird Loners” was said to be the lowest-rated series of the season after its premiere. The series which starred Becki Newton (Ugly Betty), Zachary Knighton (Happy Endings), Nate Torrence (Hello Ladies) and newcomer Meera Rohit Kumbhani was axed after only six episodes.
“Weird Loners” is a single-camera comedy that follows the unlikely friendship between four people living in a townhouse in Queens, New York. The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
In an interview with Sioux City Journal, Nate Torrence shared that he was grateful to be part of “Weird Loners” as the series enabled him to be recognized as more than just a funny sidekick but more as one of the lead actors. He, however, was quick to add that there was nothing wrong with being a character actor. In “Weird Loners” Torrence played the sheltered thirtysomething who still lives in his parents’ home.
Despite the cancellation of the show, Torrence said that the cast helped him to become a better actor which gives him confidence in the upcoming roles that he would play.
