Childrens Hospital is closing its doors for good. The Emmy-winning alternative comedy will conclude its seven-season run on Adult Swim later this spring.
Creator and star Rob Corddry announced the news on Friday, tweeting, “Attention Staff, THANK YOU #ChildrensHospital fans! Your love for the show kept us loving it. That is all.” (Corddry spoke at length about his decision to call it a day with Vulture.)
Originally a web series on TheWB.com, Childrens Hospital quickly found its way to Adult Swim, where it’s aired 80 episodes since 2010. The project has won two Emmys for outstanding special class — short-format live-action entertainment programs over its run, a category that was just expanded recently to accommodate the growing amount of short-form programming.
Created by Corddry and developed by the comedian with Jonathan Stern and David Wain, Childrens Hospital was a passion project for many. The revolving cast includes comedy A-listers — Megan Mullally, Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, Malin Akerman, Lake Bell and Erinn Hayes are among its regulars — and recurring players such as Jon Hamm, Jordan Peele, Nick Offerman and Michael Cera.
The show is produced by The Corddry Co., Warner Bros. Entertainment and Williams Street.
