CBS is officially breaking up with The Odd Couple.
In the low-rated comedy, Perry and Lennon starred as the legendary mismatched roommates Oscar and Felix — characters who originated in Neil Simon's Tony-winning play. The play also inspired a 1968 film and the Jack Klugman-Tony Randall ABC series which ran in the '70s. ABC then rebooted the comedy in the '80s as The New Odd Couple with Ron Glass and Demond Wilson.
The news of The Odd Couple's cancellationshouldn't come as much of a surprise to fans. Last month, Perry tweeted that CBS had painted over the picture of his face on the Odd Couple stage door. "I think it's safe to assume that we have been cancelled. #subtle," the actor wrote.
The Odd Couple is the third comedy CBS has canceled this season. The network also said goodbye to 2 Broke Girls and The Great Indoors.
