Fox Drops the Axe on ‘Call Me Kat’: Ratings Too ‘Catastrophic’ for Third Season

Fox Drops the Axe on 'Call Me Kat' - Ratings Too 'Catastrophic' for Third Season

Fox Network is making some big decisions about their TV shows. They’ve decided to cancel Call Me Kat after three seasons, which starred Mayim Bialik. Apparently, the ratings for the third season weren’t so purr-fect.

However, Animal Control is getting a second season, which means we’ll get to see more animal hijinks. As for Welcome to Flatch, it’s currently in its second season, and its future is about as uncertain as a cat’s mood.

Fox cancels Call Me Kat after three seasons, leaving cat café enthusiasts in despair.

But don’t worry, Call Me Kat fans! The show’s cancellation won’t affect the renewal decision for Welcome to Flatch. After all, Welcome to Flatch is more affordable than a cat’s litter box. Fox’s new head of comedy Cheryl Dolins, is on a mission to find more comedies for the network. They thought they found a good match by pairing Call Me Kat with Animal Control but turns out they weren’t compatible. Who knew cats and animals didn’t get along?

For those who haven’t watched Call Me Kat, the show stars Mayim Bialik, Leslie Jordan, Swoosie Kurtz, Cheyenne Jackson, Kyla Pratt and Julian Gant. Bialik plays Kat, a single woman who quits her job as a professor to open a cat café in Louisville. The show is produced by Bialik’s The Big Bang Theory co-star Jim Parsons and is based on the BBC hit Miranda. With a cast like that, it’s no wonder fans are meowing for more.

If you’ve been keeping up with Call Me Kat, you might have noticed that the showrunners changed each season. Jim Patterson and Maria Ferrari took over as showrunners for season three, replacing Alissa Neubauer and Darlene Hunt.

Despite the show’s cancellation, Fox still appreciates their partnership with Warner Bros. Television, That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions, BBC Studios, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons and the entire cast and crew. Aww, how sweet!
