After four years of ups and downs on the TRP scale, Hot in Cleveland will go off air post the current, sixth season. The American sitcom premiered in 2010 on channel TV Land to strong ratings, but has seen a steady decline in viewing numbers in recent years.
It followed three entertainment industry veterans from Los Angeles (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendy Malick) who escape Hollywood for the less shallow Cleveland, leasing a home from a sassy caretaker (played by Betty White), reported Contactmusic.
"After five incredible seasons of Hot in Cleveland, the sixth season, currently in production, will be its last. It's been an honour to work with Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and the incomparable Betty White as well as our executive producers Suzanne Martin, Todd Milliner, Sean Hayes and the rest of our exceptional writers, production team and crew," the channel said in a statement.
"The passion and talent they brought to the set each and every week over the past 5 years has put TV Land on the map as a network dedicated to quality original programming. We will continue to celebrate the show and are looking forward to a fantastic series finale," the statement added.
The sixth series premiered on November 5th and will consist of 24 episodes. Ernie Hudson, Andrew J West, Timm Sharp, Robert Wagner and Mario Lopez are all lined-up to make guest appearances during the final season.
