Apple TV has canceled the high school dramedy, Mr. Corman, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Don Jon), after only one season, via Deadline. The series debuted its final episode today.
According to Deadline, the series was canceled due to Mr. Corman‘s audience numbers falling short of other comedies on the streamer. The series received a 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and was met with favorable reviews.
Mr. Corman follows a fifth-grade teacher who’s suffering from anxiety following a breakup and then realizing that he won’t achieve his dreams of music stardom. Gordon-Levitt directed eight out of the ten episodes and co-wrote the series. He also serves as an executive producer alongside Bruce Eric Kaplan (Seinfeld) and Ravi Nandan (Hesher).
The cast also includes Arturo Castro (Broad City), Debra Winger (An Officer and a Gentleman), Bobby Hall (a.ka. Logic), newcomer Alexander Jo, Juno Temple (Ted Lasso), Jamie Chung (Lovecraft Country), Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), and Hector Hernandez (Disappearing Act).
Mr. Corman will be the second series to be canceled at Apple TV following Little Voice starring Brittany O’Grady (Star), which is very rare for the streamer. Meanwhile, popular series, like Ted Lasso, had been renewed at the streamer.
Gordon-Levitt will remain at Apple TV as he executive produced and voiced in the new children’s animated series, Wolfboy and the Everybody Factory, which dropped all ten of its episodes on September 24.
Mr. Corman can be streamed on Apple TV.
