So Long, Farewell: VH1’s Single Ladies Canceled
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?
