It’s Fox Time Duncanville to wrap up. On Thursday, it was announced that the comedy series had been canceled after three seasons of airing on the network, just weeks after the season 3 finale aired. According to the information surrounding the cancellationlast six episodes of Duncanville do exist, but they will eventually air exclusively on Hulu later this year instead of airing on Fox. The series follows Duncan (voiced by Amy Poehler), a “spectacularly average 15-year-old boy”. Duncan can see adulthood on the horizon: money, freedom, cars, daughters, but the reality is more like: always being broke, driving with his mother sitting on a shotgun and babysitting his little sister. He’s not exceptional, but he has a wild imagination in which he’s never anything less than amazing.
Duncanville also starred Ty Burrell, Riki Lindhome, Betsy Sodaro, Yassir Lester, Zach Cherry, Rashida Jones, Wiz Khalifa, Joy Osmanski, Kathy Najimy and Natalie Palamides. The series guest stars include Alice Cooper, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, Nick Offerman, Stephen King, Jessica Simpson, Joan Jett, Jake Tapper and Dave Grohl.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Universal Television and Fox Entertainment, Duncanville was co-created by Mike Scully, Julie Scully and Poehler, through his Paper Kite Productions, which produces with 3 Arts Entertainment’s Dave Becky. Duncanville was hosted by Fox-owned Bento Box Entertainment, which also hosts the likes of Bob’s Burgers, central parkand The big North.
“Duncanville is another great addition to our Sunday Animation Domination block,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment at Fox Entertainment, in a statement when Season 2 was announced. “Amy, Mike and Julie have been fantastic partners, just like the teams of 20th and Universal Television. Our thanks also go to the entire voice cast, including Ty, Riki, Betsy, Yassir, Zach, Joy, Rashida, and Wiz. Duncan may be an average teenager. However, the show is anything but, and we can’t wait for a whole new season of the Harris family adventures.”
As it stands, Fox’s “Animation Domination” programming block now includes veteran shows The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, The Great Northand Familiaras well as new shows like Grimsburg and that of Dan Harmon Krapopolis.
