Raising Hope Season 5? Nope, Fox Show Has Been Canceled

March 21, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Raising Hope was not renewed for a season 5, Fox announced earlier this month.

The show is wrapping up with several more episodes, including one on March 21, and a one-hour farewell event on April 4.

 The series finale kicks off with the all-new episode “How I Met Your Mullet” (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), in which guest star Lesley Nicol (“Downton Abbey”) plays Jimmy and Sabrina’s new maid.

Then, in “The Father Daughter Dance” (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), Virginia’s dad (guest star Jeffrey Tambor, “Arrested Development”) returns to Natesville with a big surprise for her and Burt, including a musical performance by Kenny Loggins (guest-starring as himself).

“On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and Raising Hope’s amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons,” said executive producer Mike Mariano in a statement. “We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville.  Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication.”

“Getting to know and love the Chance family on Raising Hope has been a sweet, hilarious ride,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment and Joe Earley, Chief Operating Officer, Fox Broadcasting Company, in the statement. “Thanks to the incredibly talented cast – along with Greg, Mike and the entire crew – for making us laugh for four fantastic seasons.”
