Kari Lizer’s multi-camera comedy Call Your Mother, headlined by Kyra Sedgwick, will not see a second season on ABC.

Sedgwick announced the cancellation on Twitter:

Call Your Mother, whose pilot could not be produced last spring because of the pandemic, received a straight-to-series order in May 2020. Filmed during the pandemic, it launched in January and has had a frequently interrupted run after the first four episodes, with new installments a couple of weeks apart.

Written and executive produced by The New Adventures of Old Christine creator Lizer, Call Your Mother centers on an empty-nester mom, Jean Raines (Sedgwick), who wonders how she ended up alone while her children live their best lives thousands of miles away. She decides her place is with her family, and as she reinserts herself into their lives, her kids realize they might actually need her more than they thought.

In addition to Sedgwick, cast also includes Rachel Sennott, Joey Bragg, Patrick Brammall, Emma Caymares and Austin Crute.
