TV ABC Cancels "Speechless"

"Speechless" Canceled after Three Seasons by ABC
by Erik Pedersen
May 10, 2019



ABC has rendered "Speechless" silent today with the Minnie Driver-led series canceled after three seasons. The cancellation is not a surprise, given that "Speechless" was ABC’s lowest-rated series.

"Speechless" had aired at 8:30 PM Wednesdays since its fall 2016 launch before moving to 8:30 PM Fridays this season. The third season wrapped April 12, with the sitcom averaging a 0.8 in the adults 18-49 demo and 3.1 million viewers.

Minnie Driver mourns Speechless' cancelation

"Well now listen. Speechless has been cancelled and it feels rather sad," she tweeted of the ABC comedy's cancelation after three seasons. "However, I truly believe we have left this conversation about family, disability and love in a better place than we found it. I love all the people I worked with on it, and all of you who loved our show too." Co-star Micah Fowler, who like his character has cerebral palsy, tweeted: "Thank you to all the fans, cast and crew who made this show so special. It was the greatest three years of my life. I hope we changed the world a little bit. I am so honored I got to do this."

ABC cancels Speechless after three seasons

The Minnie Driver-led single-camera comedy revolving around a family dealing with a teenager with disabilities ranked as the lowest-rated of ABC's scripted series this season.

"Speechless" Cancellation was a “Gut Wrenching” Decision for ABC Chief Karey Burke
by Peter White
May 14, 2019



The cancellation of "Speechless" was a “gut wrenching” decision for ABC boss Karey Burke.

The ABC Entertainment president revealed that it was a tough decision that caused a lot of “anguish” and also hit hard given that creator and exec producer Scott Silveri is a former producing partner of hers.




There was a lot of anguish for me and all of us at ABC. We love Speechless, it was a very tough decision. Scott Silveri is a former producing partner of mine and it was not without great gut wrenching consideration that we ultimately made that call.

We looked at a lot of factors and ultimately it came down to numbers and feeling like we could shore up the night more strongly with Fresh off the Boat,
” she said at Disney’s press upfronts.

It was so so I watched it but wasn't madly in love with it.
