Kidding cancelled after two seasons
Jim Carey's troubled children's entertainer won't be back for a third outing.
Kidding has been cancelled after two seasons, US network Showtime has confirmed.
The acclaimed comedy-drama starred Jim Carrey as Jeff or beloved children’s entertainer Mr Pickles whose life starts to unravel after the tragic death of his son Philip (Cole Allen).
It marked the beloved actor’s first TV role in nearly three decades after the sketch show Living in Colour in the mid-1990s.
Season 2 ended in that unusually satisfying way which sees all of the major plotlines wrapped up, as Jeff and his estranged wife Jill (Judy Greer) finally got a sense of closure on their son’s passing, but still left the door open for more.
Created by Dave Holstein, directing duties on Kidding were shared between Micheal Gondry (who also worked with Carey on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Boys Don’t Cry’s Kimberly Pierce, Jake Schreier and several others.
"After two seasons, Kidding has concluded its run on Showtime,” said the channel's statement.
"We are very proud to have aired this imaginative, critically acclaimed and rewarding series, and we would like to thank Jim Carrey, Dave Holstein, Michael Aguilar, Michel Gondry and the entire cast and crew for their brilliant and tireless work.”
