It’s one and done for ABC’s Uncle Buck adaptation.
Star James Lesure took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that the network would not move forward with a second season of the Universal Television/ABC Studios co-production. ABC confirmed that the remake of John Hughes’ 1989 feature film will not return.
“Disappointed. No more @ABCUncleBuck. Cancelled. Thankful to have worked with @ABCNetwork. Proud of what we’ve done. Thx 4 let us entertain u,” Lesure wrote.
The comedy featured an African-American cast including Lesure, Mike Epps and Nia Long. Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley (Happy Endings) were showrunners. Will Packer executive produced the series.
