EXCLUSIVE: There will be no third season of Fran Drescher‘s TV Land‘s comedy series Happily Divorced. I’ve learned that the network has decided to end the sitcom, whose last original episode aired in February. Based on Drescher’s real life, Happily Divorced stars The Nanny alumna as a woman who re-enters the dating world after finding out her husband is gay and juggles her relationship with her current boyfriend and ex-husband. Happily Divorced got off to a strong start, with the series premiere drawing 2.4 million viewers in summer 2011. The second season opened with 1.4 million viewers, and its average of 1.5 million clinched a 12-episode back order, bringing the series’ second season to 24 episodes. That final batch of episodes launched to 1.3 million viewers last November. Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobsen, who previously co-created together The Nanny, were the series’ writers/executive producers. Happily Divorced joins fellow TV Land sitcom Retired At 35, which also was cancelled after 3 seasons. The network’s current slate includes flagship Hot In Cleveland, The Exes and The Soul Man, the upcoming Kirstie Alley sitcom Kirstie as well as multi-camera pilot Jennifer Falls starring Jaime Pressly. TV Land also recently fast-tracked Younger, a single-camera comedy from Darren Star.
