NBC Cancels 'Marlon' After 2 Seasons, The Cast Reacts

NBC has canceled Marlon Wayans‘ comedy series, “Marlon,” after two seasons.

In the series, Marlon starred as an inappropriate and loving father who is navigating how to co-parent with his polar opposite ex-wife Ashley, played by Essence Atkins.

Cast members from the show took to social media to express their gratitude to all that supported and watched the series.

Essence Atkins

It’s official…@nbcmarlon is cancelled. It would be dishonest to say that I won’t miss telling these stories and working with these amazing souls every week but I am so grateful for the 20 magical laugh out loud funny smart and meaningful episodes we created.

This show gave me new friends who became family helped me heal after my own divorce and allowed me to thrive doing what I love to do.

Thank you @marlonwayans for assembling such a fantastic group of people who not only are talented but also extraordinarily dope and kind! I love and will miss all of you but y’all know the show may be over but we ain’t!!!

Thank you to everyone at @nbc who supported this show and believed in us (you know who you are) and thank you to the millions of people around the world who watched and loved it!

Cheers to having a “cool divorce” and walking away with dignity hope and trusting what God has for you in the next…

Sh*t! I should’ve waited to buy that yacht… But hey, do NOT feel bad for any of the people in the picture above. We’re so PROUD of the show we delivered. And like we’ve been hinting at for many months now, we all have shows, movies, deals, and in Marlon’s case, plans for world domination coming in 2019, so you will SEE what we got next.

My heart is so full of gratitude for everyone who watched, binged and loved this series. Your messages from around the world and even the DMs, when appropriate, filled our hearts with joy. To those who championed us at NBC and Universal-TV, and to that killer writer room full of funny people, I can’t wait to work with ALL of you again.

And fear not… Stevie ain’t gone. Stevie’s somewhere tutoring the kids, co-signing Ashley’s point of view, crushing on Yvette, and most of all, correcting Marlon, one factoid at a time. @marlonwayans I can’t thank you enough for giving me the chance to shine in prime time as an actor.

Peace, blessings and nothing but love to the viewers, crew, and cast of NBC’s Marlon. And here’s to 2019, the next chapter…!

All I can say is thank you for the support. Thank you for laughing at us. In my Whitney Houston voice “And Iiiiiiiiii will always LOVE UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!

I really love the cast of “Marlon” and it’s truly been a pleasure watching the show, visiting their set and interviewing them.



I wish all of them the very best in their endeavors.
