'Impastor' Canceled After Two Seasons at TV Land
TV Land is parting ways with Impastor.
The single-camera comedy starring Michael Rosenbaum has been canceled after two seasons on the Viacom-owned cable network.
“We want to thank the incredibly talented cast, producers and crew of Impastor for their hard work over the past two exciting seasons,” TV Land development and production president Keith Cox said Tuesday in a statement.
Noted Rosenbaum: "We loved our little show and I know many of you really enjoyed it. It was a good run and I'm grateful to have worked with an amazing group of people. I feel very blessed. Again, thanks for all the support. I hope to bother you by promoting my next projects as they come along. Much love to everyone and happy holidays."
The decision to cancel Impastor comes as TV Land recently picked up John Wells' American Woman to series. The comedy, starring Alicia Silverstone, joins upcoming rookies including Nobodies and Throwing Shade on the schedule for 2017. They join a slate that also incudes the sophomore returns of Teachers and Lopez. On the pilot side, TV Land still has Heathers in consideration after passing on its reboot of First Wives Club. Impastor joins The Jim Gaffigan Show as the only single-camera comedies to be canceled following TV Land's reboot.
TV Land currently airs originals one night a week but, to hear Cox tell it, does not yet have enough content to expand to a second night, though it is something the network often discusses internally.
