“We are really happy for that whole team,” she said.
Asked if the decision to cancel had been creative, or financial, Walden insisted a “variety of factors” led Fox to pull the plug after five seasons. “We love the show,” she said, touting its creators and “phenomenal cast,” while also noting five seasons is a “great length of time for a single cam” comedy run.
