So sad indeed that VH1 has decided not to give us a season 4 of “Single Ladies” It doesn’t really come as much of a shock since I couldn’t get into the show this season for some reason. Something was missing, and apparently VH1 thought so as well. Here’s a statement released from VH1:
“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies,” VH1 said in a statement to Deadline. “Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”
Comedic drama series Single Ladies started off as a movie before becoming VH1′s first hourlong scripted series. Its success opened the door to Hit The Floor, which became a breakout hit in its launch last summer, and drama Hindsight, which was just picked up to series. There were bumps on the road. Shortly after VH1 renewed Single Ladies for a third season in August 2012, creator/executive producer Stacy A. Littlejohn exited the project. Season 3 didn’t launch until this January, a year and a half after it was ordered. Still, Single Ladies is leaving on a high note. Its third season opener drew 2.6 million viewers. For the premiere airing and its same night encore combined, Single Ladies grew each seasons:, posting 2.9 for the season premiere, 3.2 million for the Season 2 opener and 3.5 million for Season 3. Also cancelled is VH1′s sketch comedy series Stevie TVstarring Stevie Ryan. It ran for two seasons, ending its run in July 2013.
Hey, it happens! Guess these “Single Ladies” will be on the job hunt searching for a new project.
