Hulu’s Pen15 is coming to an end.
The youth-skewing comedy drama will end with the second half of Season 2, which will debut on the streamer on December 3.
The news emerged in a long profile of creators Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle in the New Yorker.
The pair said that they always envisioned the series as three seasons but the pandemic – the show was forced to shut down production due to Covid19 – hastened the ending.

The first seven episodes of Season 2 launched in September 2020 with an animated special airing earlier this year.
Pen15 is described as “middle school as it actually happened.” The series from AwesomenessTV is co-written, created by and stars real-life longtime buds Erskine and Konkle. They play 13-year-old versions of themselves as middle school outcasts at the turn of the 21st century — surrounded by actual 13-year-olds. The best day of their lives can turn into the worst with the stroke of a gel pen.
Erskine, Konkle and their co-writer Sam Zvibleman executive produce alongside Debbie Liebling, Marc Provissiero, Brooke Pobjoy, Becky Sloviter and the Lonely Island trio of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer.
