Undateable (Not) Canceled By NBC (UPDATED)

Per TV Series Finale, Undateable will not be returning for a 4th season. It's situation was quite unique over its run; despite a comedy 3 seasons in, it only produced 36 episodes. The first season aired in the summer double-pumped, and while steadily losing viewers grabbed a renewal for beating expectations. For lack of any other option, it aired after The Voice last spring for its second season to relatively underwhelming numbers, but managed a third season renewal as NBC's only returning comedy. Season 3 aired live on Fridays, though while steady, it was steady in fractional territory and NBC couldn't have been making a whole lot of money off of it considering its ad rate was one of the lowest on all of the Big 4.

UPDATE: A writer on Undateable has stated that there is "no truth whatsoever" to this cancelation. I will keep providing updates, but it looks like TV Series Finale may have jumped the gun on this one. The original statement came from the newly released Variety bubble watch article which stated:

“Undateable” is dead, despite the network’s creative gamble on a fully live season for the most recent third round. Sources say the show was effectively cancelled last week with NBC giving a heads up to the cast and crew, though the official news may not come until upfronts."

We will keep you posted.
