Now it’s officially over. After Fox‘s freshman Ben & Kate was pulled from the schedule earlier this week, production on the low-rated comedy is wrapping today with 15 filmed episodes. The series will not complete its 19-episode order as the network had previously suggested. The fate of the remaining 2 unaired episodes remains unclear, with a summer burnoff the most likely scenario.
