‘Bless the Harts’ Gets Raptured Off of Fox Lineup

Taking a break from announcing new animated shows in development, Fox is making room for the next Animation Domination class by cancelling Emily Spivey’s Bless the Harts. The co-production between Disney-owned 20th Television and Fox Entertainment will not return after wrapping up its second season in May. S2 has been dragging in ratings, with the most recent episode debut pulling a series low of 56,000 same-day viewers.

Created and executive-produced by Emmy winner Emily Spivey (SNL, Parks and Recreation), and featuring a voice cast of comedy all-stars, including Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, Ike Barinholtz and Kumail Nanjani, Bless the Harts follows the Harts, a Southern family that is always broke, and forever struggling to make ends meet. They one day hope to achieve the American dream, but they’re already rich – in friends, family and laughter.

A new Easter-themed episode will air Sunday at 7:30/6:30C.

Fox’s primetime comedy animation development/production pipeline includes a fully-owned new toon from Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon set in Ancient Greece, Cocky from the creators of The Knick, supernatural mystery adaptation Crag Banyon P.I., Greater Good, Demi-God, Ocean Village, an untitled Jermaine Fowler project, The X-Files: Albuquerque, Temporary Humans and Housebroken, which premieres May 31.
