Ghosted, the supernatural comedy starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson, will not be returning for a second season. Deadline reports that Fox has formally canceled the show, putting an end to the X-Files-inspired series.
The news isn't surprising since the show has maintained low ratings for the network. Rumors of cancellation started in April when Fox pulled the series from its lineup after airing the first 16 episodes. The season resumed with the final six episodes on June 10.
The story followed polar opposites who were recruited by a secret organization called the Bureau Underground to investigate paranormal activity in the Los Angeles area. Robinson played quick-witted ex-detective Leroy Wright who is skeptical of the supernatural. Meanwhile, Scott's Max Jennifer wrote a book on the multiverse and became a true believe after his wife was kidnapped by aliens (though no one believed him). The series came from Tom Gormican who also penned the script for the film That Awkward Moment.
Fox will kick off the fall with an entirely new slate of comedies includingLast Man Standing, which was picked up by the network after ABC's cancellation, and Rel starring Get Out scene stealer Lil Rel. The network also just signed a five-year deal with the WWE to air Smackdown on Friday nights starting in 2019.
