Act Your Age has ended after one season on Bounce TV.

Show creator Alyson Fouse recently posted news of the cancellation on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“I’m sorry to say that my show Act Your Age will not be returning to @bounce for a second season,” Fouse shared with fans. “The first season will, however, be available on @netflix early next year. Thank you to everyone who watched and supported. It meant the world to us.”

The cancellation comes after the freshman comedy premiered with back-to-back episodes on March 4, 2023, with 2.14 million total viewers — making it the most-watched half-hour series debut in Bounce TV history.

The network did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the cancellation.

The series centered on three successful women in their 50s living in the Washington D.C.-area, who were each at a personal crossroads and decided the best way forward in life was together.

Kym Whitley, Tisha Campbell, and Yvette Nicole Brown led the cast.

Whitley played Bernadette, a no-nonsense real estate developer. Campbell portrayed Keisha, the wild card of the group who was always up to something, and Brown played Angela, the former First Lady of Norfolk, Virginia, who was looking to redefine her life after her husband died.

The sitcom also featured Mariah Robinson and Nathan Anderson as the 20-something children of Angela and Bernadette, respectively.

The 16-episode first season was split into two parts — with the first seven episodes running weekly on Saturday nights in the spring and the second half premiered over the summer. The season finale aired July 29.

In addition to creating the half-hour sitcom, Fouse served as showrunner and executive producer.

The series was produced by MGM Television and co-executive produced by Barry Poznick, Bradley Gardner and David Hudson, Ranada Shepard, and Ken Ornstein.

Bounce TV is part of The E.W. Scripps Company. The channel features programming for African American audiences.
