It’s an early trip to cancellation hell for Angel From Hell.
CBS has cancelled the comedy-drama after just five episodes. There will be no Angel From Hell Season 2.
As Deadline reports:
CBS is making a change on Thursday. Midseason series Angel From Hell, starring Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson, is being cancelled effective immediately. It aired five episodes of its 13-episode order. Starting next week, the single-camera comedy will be replaced by multi-camera veteran 2 Broke Girls, which will return to Thursdays where it aired last season. (A Big Bang Theory repeat will fill Angel From Hell’s Thursday 9:30 PM slot this week.)
2 Broke Girls will make its Thursday season debut the following night, Feb. 18.
Angel From Hell, starring Lynch as a young woman’s (Lawson) caustic guarding angel, was originally slated to debut as part of CBS’ post-Thursday Night Football lineup in November but its launch was pushed to January. There had been rumors about creative issues on the high-concept series, which has drawn modest ratings for CBS’ Thursday comedy block standards, in the 1.3-1.4 rating range among adults 18-49 (live+same day).
The 2 Broke Girls move takes care of the remaining episodes of the fifth-season comedy.
