Alexis Bledel, Jason Ritter

Fox has decided to shut down production on Us & Them, effectively canceling the series before it has even premiered, Deadline.com reports.

Us & Them stars Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel as Gavin and Stacey, a young couple who decide to purse a long-distance relationship.

The network decided not to produce additional episodes after completing production on six episodes, plus the pilot. The news comes after the show went on hiatus early to work on scripts. Even though the network has not technically canceled the comedy, the cast has reportedly been told they are able to take other jobs.

(Hopefully this means Ritter can return to Parenthood!)

Us & Them is slated to premiere midseason.
