Netflix has canceled the animated Tuca & Bertie featuring the voices of comedians Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong after one season.

The comedy centered on two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building, and began streaming in May.

“While Tuca & Bertie won’t have a second season, we’re proud to feature this story on Netflix for years to come,” Netflix said in a statement to Variety.

Haddish and Wong served as executive producers along with Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Noel Bright and Steven A. Cohen. Show creator Lisa Hanawalt responded to the cancellation, by saying she was proud of the team that worked on the series.

“Tuca & Bertie is everything I wanted it to be: beautiful, funny, fresh, loving, horny, weird, experimental, comforting, and deep,” Hanawalt tweeted Wednesday. “The whole team put our hearts and asses into this show, and I’m so proud of it.”

Netflix also said it would not be renewing the Kiefer Sutherland political thriller Designated Survivor for a fourth season.

“We are proud to have offered fans a third season of Designated Survivor, and will continue to carry all three seasons for years to come,” Netflix said. “We’re especially thankful to star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland, who brought passion, dedication and an unforgettable performance as President Kirkman.”
