FX Cancels Comedy Series After Two Seasons


Disappointing news, we won’t be seeing a season three for FX’s Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. The series was widely regarded as the best of the three rock themed series on television- the others being Vinyl, which was abruptly cancelled by HBO and Showtime’s Roadies. But despite some good reviews, after two seasons FX opted not to pick up the series for another season. Starring Denis Leary, with a supporting cast of John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales, the show had a solid first season followed by an even stronger season two but failed to gain enough of a following to garner a third season.

The series followed middle-aged rocker Johnny Rock, played by Leary, trying to regroup his band after addiction problems caused a promising career to end before its time.

The music-based comedy series was part of an impressive FX comedy line up that includes Baskets, Better Things, Man Seeking Woman, It’s Always Sunny and Archer.

Those hoping for a chance to see Leary and Kelly perform together will have an opportunity to see them in Boston this November for Leary’s annual Comics Come Home benefit at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass along with Bill Burr, Lenny Clarke, Nick Di Paolo, Jay Larson, Wendy Liebman, and Wanda Sykes.  Leary’s fundraiser supports the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care and has raised close to 30 million dollars since 1994.
