‘Not Dead Yet’ Canceled After 2 Seasons At ABC

After two seasons, ABC has canceled the Gina Rodriguez-led and executive-produced comedy series Not Dead Yet.

Written by Casey Johnson and David Windsor, Not Dead Yet centers on newly single and feeling-old Nell Serrano (Rodriguez), a self-described disaster who works to restart the life and career she left behind 10 years ago. A once-successful journalist, Nell put her career on hold to help her fiancé get his restaurant off the ground. Following their breakup, she takes the only job she can get – writing obituaries – which at first seems like a step backward but ultimately might be exactly what she needs to move forward.

Hannah Simone, Lauren Ash, Rick Glassman, Joshua Banday, Angela E. Gibbs, Jesse Garcia and Brad Garrett also star.

When the show premiered in early 2023, it was ABC’s most-watched comedy debut in more than 4 years. However, the ratings didn’t stick in Season 2. Deadline’s Editor-in-Chief of TV Nellie Andreeva wrote of the show last month, “The single-camera Not Dead Yet is heavily on the bubble. Its ratings have been soft, making for some bleak prospects, though the series starring Gina Rodriguez is said to have its supporters internally and could potentially find a spot next season based on ABC’s scheduling needs.”

ABC comedies that will continue include Abbott Elementary and The Conners, the latter of which will conclude following a shorter, 6-episode Season 7.

This is the second ABC show starring a Latina lead that will not return for a new season following the cancelation of the Jaina Lee Ortiz-starrer Station 19. However, the network did renew the Ramon Rodriguez-led series Will Trent for a third season. Alongside NBC’s Lopez vs. Lopez from George Lopez, Mayan Lopez and Debby Wolfe—which was renewed for a third season this week—Will Trent is only the second Latino-led project on network TV.
