HBO isn’t feeling a sense of “Togetherness” anymore.

The channel has opted to end its comedy from creators Mark and Jay Duplass after two seasons. The Season 2 finale on April 10 will now serve as a series ender.

“While we certainly are feeling all the sadness that comes with this kind of news, our predominant reaction is one of gratitude,” the Duplass brothers and co-creator Steve Zissis say in a statement. “Millions of you tuned in to watch a personal, niche show about sensitive people and the sensitive feelings that they feel sensitively. In a time where you have so many great options on TV, we don’t take this lightly.”

That “niche” description fits pretty well. “Togetherness” opened to 427,00 same-day viewers in 2015 (the premiere eventually drew 2.6 million people on all platforms). Season 2 is averaging 337,000 same-day viewers and a 0.1 in adults 18-49.

The show joins these series that have been canceled or are ending in 2015-16.
