Other members of the cast included David Alan Grier, Porscha Coleman, Jonathan Kite, and Kyla-Drew as Foxx’s daughter.

Alex Avant and Corinne Foxx served as producers on the series. Bentley Kyle Evans came in as the show’s replacement showrunner at the start of production. Ken Whittingham directed the first six episodes of the eight-episode series and Evans directed the last two.

Over the weekend, people took to social media to share their opinions about the cancellation.

Camille Corbett, who was a staff writer on the show tweeted: “Not the show I was on getting canceled on Juneteenth.”

Twitter user @LBrothersMedia added: “No surprise here. The show wasn’t very good, and didn’t seem to know what kind of show it wanted to be yet. But I was hoping it would get another season to hopefully try to figure some things out and get better.”

@sirthevirgo tweeted: “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me didn’t get a lot of marketing. Some people barely knew the series existed. The cancellation is kinda left field.”

Foxx still has two upcoming projects with the streaming platform including the films They Cloned Tyrone and Day Shift.
