After three seasons, “Call Me Kat” has been cancelled by Fox. The British sitcom Miranda by Miranda Hart served as inspiration for the American sitcom starring Mayim Bialik in the title role. The show was a high-profile acquisition for Fox in 2019, however Season 3’s viewership was not as strong as anticipated.
Fox Gives Up Call Me Kat After Season 3
Fox’s wildly popular comedy series Call Me Kat, which aired for three seasons and received mixed reviews from viewers, has finally been cancelled. Mayim Bialik can be seen in the season finale episode of “Call Me a Donut Wall” In a statement, a Fox representative said, “We are quite proud of ‘Call Me Kat.'” But regrettably, the reception from the audience was not as enthusiastic as we had planned.
We appreciate our relationship with Warner Bros. Television, That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions, BBC Studios, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons, and the whole cast and crew of “Call Me Kat,” the spokesperson concluded.
Fox broadcast the show’s midseason premiere on January 3, 2021, before deciding to move it to Thursday for the duration of its run. Although the first season got off to a good start, by the third season’s finish, the ratings had rapidly declined. Bialik portrays a woman in the series who quits her work as a college lecturer to start a cat cafe.
Call Me Kat Was More Gimmick Than Sitcom
Dial Met Fox may have reported that Kat’s first season did well, but according to 15 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the show only had a 27% approval rating. A lot of people criticised it as being “more gimmick than sitcom,” drowning the endearing Mayim Bialik in a pit of hollow jokes and a thin ensemble.
Nonetheless, the show received nominations for Best Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards and Outstanding Multi-Camera Cinematography for A Multi-Camera Series at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards.
The show also stars Cheyenne Jackson, Swoosie Kurtz, Kyla Pratt, and Julian Grant in addition to Bialik. Until his passing in October 2022, Leslie Jordan, who was most known for playing Beverley Leslie on Will & Grace, also starred in the drama. On May 4, 2023, the “Call Me a Donut Wall” Season 3 finale aired.
