·1 min read

Fans may consider it a major crime, but the Showtime series Flatbush Misdemeanors has been canceled after two seasons.

Starring Kevin Iso and Dan Perlman, the comedy centered around two young Brooklyn men struggling with modern life as they tried to keep their heads above water and not go broke.

"Flatbush Misdemeanors will not be moving forward with a third season," Showtime said in a statement. "We would like to thank the creators, executive producers, and stars Kevin Iso and Dan Perlman, along with fellow executive producer Keith Heisler, our partners at Avalon, as well as our scene-stealing supporting cast of Kristin Dodson, Hassan Johnson, and Kareem Green. We're very proud to have taken Kevin and Dan's distinctive shorts and expanded it into two seasons of excellent television. Those two funny and inventive seasons will live on our site for audiences to continue to discover and enjoy."

Perlman reacted to the cancelation on Instagram, saying, "Hey, hi, hello. There will not be a third season of Flatbush Misdemeanors. I'm incredibly proud of what we were able to do with this show. Me and Kevin made three episodes of a zero-budget web series and we were able to turn it into two seasons of a show on Showtime that people really loved."

The news of Flatbush's cancelation comes after a The Wall Street Journal story earlier this week reported that Showtime is considering discontinuing its streaming service and shifting its content to Paramount+.
