Cartoon Network has reportedly cancelled Uncle Grandpa.
Despite announcing the renewal of the animated series for Seasons 4 and 5 last month, the network is also ending production on the series, ruling out a sixth season, Cartoon Brew reports.
While there will still be five seasons of Uncle Grandpa, the site reports that the remaining seasons will be split into 26 episodes, half that of the 52-episode first season:
Here’s what’s going on: the Uncle Grandpa crew at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank was informed in mid-March that the show would wrap up production at the end of its current season. When they’re done, the crew will have produced 78 half-hours, or 156 11-minute cartoons.
Because the first season of the series consisted of 52 11-minute shorts, the crew members had assumed that there would be two additional seasons of 52 11-minute shorts. However, Cartoon Network is splitting up the remaining 104 shorts into 26 cartoons per season, which allows them to proclaim four new seasons of content.
Cartoon Network has yet to comment.
