So Long, Farewell: VH1’s Single Ladies Canceled

March 1, 2014  |  


If you were a fan of the adventures of Raquel, Keisha and April, you’ll be sad to hear that VH1 has decided to cancel Single Ladies after three seasons.

VH1 has issued a statement regarding their decision to not renew the series for a fourth season:

“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies. Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”

The show starred LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea and Denise Vasi as well as newcomer, Letoya Luckett. Actress, Stacey Dash was a cast mate during the first season, but left the show after rumors circulated regarding drama behind-the-scenes. Denise Vasi replaced her in Season 2.

Although the show has whipped out its share of drama and plot twists, the current season is pulling in the same 2.2 million viewers as the last. The show was a production of Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment.  We hope VH1 works with the company again on future projects.

It’s always sad to see scripted-series go, but according to the Hollywood Reporter, VH1 recently picked up its third scripted series Hindsight, and renewed the basketball cheerleading series Hit The Floor for a second season in July.

The Single Ladies series finale will air March 24 9/8c.

Will you miss the show or do you think it’s seen better days?

    NO. I love this show. Yes the writers could do better and change the ideas of the characters of the show but don’t cancel the show.

  • Love

    Enjoyed Single Ladies. At least it is much better than Mary Jane. That should be taken off. Maybe OWN network will pick up Single Ladies

  • B Cooper

    The first season finale ended with a cliff hanger. Since they chose to roll the dice and bring the show back for season two after Stacy Dash left, they may as well have cast Denise Vasi as Val. At least they could have tied up the Val/Quinn/Jerry loose ends and maybe some more viewers to boot! Maybe they would have had more success with season three.

  • Taryn Bryant

    I knew that was going to happen.

  • Leah Robinson

    GOOD! That show was a piece of junk

  • Fair and Balanced

    Cheers to Stacey Dash, not that it was not a good show and should have stayed on the air and at least given a real chance but did anyone seriously think without real talent it was going to last?

    I’ll miss the pretty clothes

  • Brenda Cibelli

    low rent

  • Werdsmith

    Makes sense. The show was marginally written and poorly acted. “Next.”

  • FamuRattler85

    Dang. I actually like this show. I’m sure going to miss Keisha & Malcolm and whatever could have happened with Terrence & Raquel.

  • Astrid

    Yes, finally, put the terrible show to rest. Poor stories, awful acting and Lisa Raye has got to be the absolute worse actress on tv right now. I gave the show a try to support the Queen put I couldn’t stand Lisa saying “Mackum” one more time. lol

  • Guest

    Good riddance to this ratchet rubbish. Nothing more than mostly overly-made up h0s too old for those kinds of trashy roles. VH1 is a trashy network that needs to be yanked, anyway.

  • Chaundra Smith

    I like the show…. Everything on tv does not need to be reality… We need to be entertained but the imagination should be stimulated as well…

  • Michelle

    I am gonna say keep the show

  • Shawndrea Rachelle

    They look like cartoons. That picture is Photoshopped so bad

  • Andrea

    Thank you Jesus

  • Lissa 329

    Said to say but honestly, I saw this coming after the creator backed out before season 3 began filming. That says a lot right there.

    I enjoyed watching Single Ladies. I will always support shows with women of color. The storylines were becoming weak. I enjoyed Malcolm and Keisha’s romance – but I felt the story should have concentrated more on Keisha than Malcolm. The other ladies were beautiful but I didn’t like the addition of the Wayan. And Letoya Luckett’s role was one-dimensional. I am happy they are allowing closure with a series finale. Most shows lately are cut short. No ending – leaving viewers hanging.

  • chanela

    but yet these ignorant azz reality shows are on their 7th and 8th seasons. smh pathetic. i can’t stand this generation

    • cb

      Sorry its the baby boomers and genX that keep it business

  • Melissa Lowe

    It’s a good show & evidently a lot of people think so with 2.2 million viewers…I’m sure another network will pick it up with that many viewers..its a well liked show..much better than all these reality housewife & love and hip hop shows.

    • bigdede

      Oh no please don’t say that. If this show goes to BET, Keisha will start selling drugs, April will turn into a wigger and Raquel will end up having to sell her business and become the manager of the local Rainbow.

      • Zoe2133

        LMAO at rainbow stores

      • guest

        Kml you are silly!

      • cb

        true, because BET killed The Game

    • Astrid

      2.,2 million with 10 million that could be is not a good number. If there were only 3 or 4 million viewers available to choose but 2 million out of all the people out there to make the choice, not good numbers. It was an awful, terrible, sadly scripted, horribly acted show. And the reality shows are bad but at least they are bad in a more natural way. They are just being naturally rachet. They aren’t trying to act sophisticated and educated when they sound goofy and pretentious. And why couldn’t Lisa Raye ever learn to that he man’s name right. I got so sick of her calling him MacKum. lol. But, in fairness, it was no worse then some others so I agree with you on some of what you said.


    Im so upset, I really did like this show. ):

  • alex

    im sorry but i tried so hard to keep up with this show ….but it was just soooo boring….

  • Nya Jacobsen

    Good. I was insulted by the bad acting and writing. How arrogant must the entire cast be not to take an acting class after a year hiatus. I did like the outfits, but I wrote them off after the first episode this season when nothing else had changed. Try harder.

    • kale is king

      i saw two episodes and it seemed like the clothes were the best thing about it. i don’t know how lisaraye continues to getting acting jobs. there are more talented black actresses out there with much better personalities.

  • SugaSweetz

    Nooooo!!!!! dont go they always taking the good shows of the air. I love this show

  • ZiggyZoh

    (clicking to Stacy Dash’s twitter feed now…)

  • J Mc

    I’m ready for Hit The Floor to come back, so long Single Ladies!! lol

  • bigdede

    I loved Raquel storyline with Terrance. She was a the best thing about this show. Lisa Raye’s acting was horrid!! I am shocked she never got an acting coach, she’s been in the game too long to still be this bad. Also they had too many newbies. I liked the Keisha/Malcolm romance when it was focused on Keisha. Too much focus is on Malcolm and his whining. I don’t care about his daddy’s business or his daddy’s wife. Keisha is just a side player in what should be her storyline. I like April but why did they have to hired the ugliest Wayans to be her love interest? It always look like his eyes are closed. I just hope Terrance and Raquel get a happy ending for the finale. I also wish Black blogs like this one would have supported the show. Ya’ll have recaps of RHOA but not of this show. Well at least Hit the Floor is coming back.

    • hollyw

      I’m saying, she was the only decent female actor on set…which I guess makes sense as to why it had to go lol, but I’m just saying, though. I liked her.

      *sidebar: that promo photo is photoshopped as h–l!

    • Sweet Ga Brown

      Yassss!!! They got THE ugliest Wayans.

  • anonymous

    I liked the show, don’t go!

  • Rosemary Davis

    Best news I’ve heard all day Lisa Raye can not act period, too bad E entertainment.does not see the need to cancel KUWK Yaaaaaaaaay.

  • lainypoo

    This some bs. Every time a good show come on VH1, they always cancel it. But as long as derogatory shows on like Basketball Wives that kept up all that profanity, bullying, and everything else negative. You played that forever. I guess by the time I enjoy Hit the Floor, you’ll be pulling it off the air to.

    • JRoc85

      I’m a bit disappointed that Single Ladies has been cancelled! Single Ladies isn’t the best, but it’s certainly NOT the worst!!! After it’s 1 year hiatus after last season, I think that hurt viewership a lot (not to mention, Hit The Floor kinda stole a bit of its shine during their hiatus)! LeToya Luckett was KILLING EAT as Felicia Price, so it’s a shame I won’t be seeing more of her (or the possibility of a romance between Raquel & Terrence)!!!

  • Jazzmynn

    i like the story line

  • Guest

    About time! The first season was decent and it should have stopped there. Now if only Oprah can have the good sense to cancel that media vomit called Have and Have Not. That’s the worst thing to happen to television since its invention.

    • cb

      Have and Have Nots is a GREAT show

  • BabyBlue

    Thank goodness. They should’ve done that after season one. Their acting sucks

  • Mia

    Good! Bad acting on that show anyways.
