Jim Carrey’s Kidding has been canceled by Showtime after two seasons.

The comedy drama, created by Dave Holstein, launched its second season in February.

The show marked the second collaboration between Carrey and director and exec producer Michael Gondry.

The series starred Carrey as iconic children’s television host Jeff Pickles. The second season picked up moments after season one’s cliffhanger, and with his beloved Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time off the air for the first time in 30 years, Jeff was forced to find a way to communicate with his many fans who still need him.

The show also stars Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon), Catherine Keener (Get Out), Judy Greer (Married), Cole Allen, Juliet Morris and Justin Kirk and is executive produced by Carrey, Dave Holstein, Michel Gondry, Michael Aguilar, Roberto Benabib, Raffi Adlan, Jason Bateman and Jim Garavente.

“After two seasons, Kidding has concluded its run on Showtime. We are very proud to have aired this imaginative, critically acclaimed and rewarding series, and we would like to thank Jim Carrey, Dave Holstein, Michael Aguilar, Michel Gondry and the entire cast and crew for their brilliant and tireless work,” Showtime noted in a statement.
