Seems like Fox is undergoing the process of renewing and dropping shows.
Following three seasons, the network has made the decision to cancel the comedy show “Call Me Kat.” The show’s ratings have been going down, especially in the third season.

Animal Control, another comedy show, is still on Fox and is likely to get renewed for season 2. There’s however, uncertainty about the future of Welcome to Flatch amid its second season.
Despite Animal Control and Call Me Kat being paired, the two shows don’t seem to be compatible. Welcome to Flatch has reached a good price point, but Fox’s decision about whether or not to bring it back for a third season is not likely to be affected by the cancellation of Call Me Kat. Cheryl Dolins, the new head of comedy, has plans to prioritize finding more comedies.
Call Me Kat stars Mayim Bialik, who plays the role of Kat, a 39-year-old single woman. Kat fights against society and her mother every day to prove that one doesn’t need and can still be happy with their life. After quitting her job as a professor at the University of Louisville, her parents saved money for her wedding. She used that money to open a cat café in Louisville.
Late Leslie Jordan was a big part of the cast as the co-star. He sadly passed away in October 2022. The show also features Cheyenne Jackson, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, and Swoosie Kurtz in the same.
The series is based on the long-running BBC hit Miranda and has Bialik’s co-star from The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons as the executive producer.
Call Me Kat is produced by Jim Parsons’ That’s Wonderful Productions, Mayim Bialik’s Sad Clown Productions, and BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm in association with Warner Bros Television and Fox Entertainment. Alongside Bialik and Parsons, the show’s executive producers are Todd Spiewak of That’s Wonderful Productions, Angie Stephenson of BBC Studios, and Miranda Hart, who was the star of the original British show.
Alissa Neubauer was the showrunner for season two, and Darlene Hunt was the showrunner for season one. Jim Patterson and Maria Ferrari took over as showrunners for the third season.
We are very proud of Call Me Kat. But, unfortunately, the audience response to it was not as strong as we had hoped. We are thankful for our partnership with Warner Bros. Television, That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions, BBC Studios, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons and the entire cast and crew for their work and dedication to Call Me Kat,
said a Fox spokesman.
On the drama side of things, Sony Pictures TV and Fox Entertainment’s new shows Accused and Alert: Missing Persons Unit have already been renewed for a second season by Fox. They join The Cleaning Lady, which has been renewed for a third season by Warner Bros. TV, and 9-1-1: Lone Star, which has been renewed for a fifth season, while ABC’s flagship show 9-1-1 moves forward.
The John Wells Productions’ Hawaii lifeguard drama Rescue: HI-Surf, was also given a new drama series order by Warner Bros. TV. Sony Pictures Television and Fox Entertainment are co-producing the medical drama Doc, which is based on an Italian series.
The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Bob’s Burgers are among the renewed ones.
