After two seasons of bringing fresh and raucous, singe-camera humor to TV Land’s rebranded lineup, “Impastor” has officially been canceled today, the network and lead star Michael Rosenbaum have announced.
Created by Christopher Vane, and coming from showrunner Robert Greene, the series focused on a low-life man (Rosenbaum), who cons the residents of a small town into believing he’s their newly-appointed gay pastor. The series, which was one of a number of other shows to be part of TV Land’s rebranding from more traditional series like “Hot in Cleveland,” to younger and more modern fare, is now the second single-camera comedy to be canceled by the network, following “The Jim Gaffigan Show” earlier this year.
“We loved our little show and I know many of you really enjoyed it. It was a good run and I’m grateful to have worked with an amazing group of people. I feel very blessed,” said Rosenbaum. “Again, thanks for all the support. I hope to bother you by promoting my next projects as they come along. Much love to everyone and happy holidays.”
“We want to thank the incredibly talented cast, producers and crew of “Impastor” for their hard work over the past two exciting seasons,” added TV Land development and production president Keith Cox.
The series was TV Land’s highest-testing pilot when it first came to the network, and alongside shows like “Younger,” has been an integral force in reinvigorating TV Land’s lineup of original programming. The news comes just as the network is starting to pick up more and more series and pilots as well, including John Wells’ “American Woman,” “Nobodies,” and “Throwing Shade.”
