Done Deal: VH1 Has Canceled “Single Ladies”
VH1 has opted to cancel “Single Ladies” after three seasons.
The drama, which stars LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea and Denise Vasi, will end on March 24, with its season finale serving as the series farewell.
Produced by Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment, “Single Ladies” originally aired as a movie special on VH1 on May 30, 2011. The original film was spun off into a TV series that maintained solid ratings throughout its three-season run.
Season one of “Single Ladies” premiered with 2.9 million viewers, season two had 3.2 million and season three boasted 3.5 million. Despite its success and growth, VH1 is ending the show.
“We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies,” VH1 said in a statement. “Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.”
Actress Stacey Dash appeared on season one of the show, but was allegedly fired for behind-the-scenes challenges.
Vasi, an “All My Children” alum, joined the series for season two.
The show also featured actors D.B. Woodside, Terrell Tilford, Harold House Moore, and Travis Winfrey.
