Too bad, but the show’s appeal is to an awfully narrow niche. I’m part of that niche, of course, and I enjoyed the show quite a bit. Part of me wonders if a third season ever had a chance or if Apple+ executives read the third season and decided to skip it on that basis.

I have my doubts that another streamer will pick it up. They’re all trying to cut costs, not add another streamer’s non-hit shows.

I hear you on the melodies, but the lyrics had their moments.  "Where the men are men and the cows are cows" always made me laugh.

Such a loss to our community, but sadly not a surprise.  I found this to be a bundle of joy but literally no one outside my online bubble has heard of it, much less chose to watch it.

This is really sad. They also recently cancelled Josh Gad's Central Park series so maybe they're maybe they are moving away from musical content. I hope the Come From Away pro-shot doesn't get removed too.

This is the push I needed to cancel my AppleTV subscription until Shrinking and The Morning Show come back.

So disappointing. I know it's a niche audience, but I'm squarely in that niche and thought it was terrifically clever and entertaining.  Guess I'll cancel the Apple TV+ subscription too, and being an older man, I'll write an angry old man complaint letter.

I so wanted to love this show -- and I tried watching it many times -- but I could never get into it.  I just felt it was too 'precious' for its own good.  I was surprised when it got renewed for a second season, because I agree that its audience was very niche.  i expected to be part of that niche, and discovered that it was not.

I was just listening to the soundtracks of the two seasons the other day. I really loved this very silly love letter to musical theatre and wish we could’ve gotten that third season. Don’t know how I feel about the stage adaptation - losing that absolutely perfect ensemble of the TV show feels like it would diminish some of the magic. But at least we had those two seasons. The mashing up of Sweeney Todd and Annie is still one brilliant bit of musical parody.
