ABC has canceled half-hour comedy “Downward Dog.” Co-creator Samm Hodges tweeted news of the cancellation Friday.
In the note to fans (read it below), they stress that the reasons for the cancellation were strictly financial and that they are “committed to finding a new home.”
“Got the very surprising news today that ABC is not moving forward with Downward Dog,” Hodges wrote. “They loved it creatively and really wanted to make more but couldn’t find a financial path to do so.”

Hodges added that producers are “committed to finding a new home” for the series and that the last two episodes of the show’s eight-episode run will air Tuesday, beginning at 10 p.m.
The quirky comedy, starring Allison Tolman as the owner of a moody dog named Martin who speaks to the audience in voiceover, debuted last month to mostly glowing reviews, with a premiere at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
The final two episodes of Downward Dog will air next Tuesday, June 27 at 10/9c on ABC.
Tolman thanked fans for their support of the show, posting a message on Twitter saying, “To all #downwarddog fans, simply put- we wouldn’t be us without you. Thanks for getting us. Bark bark.”
