LOS ANGELES — Comedy series “Tacoma FD” has been canceled at TruTV after four seasons, Variety has confirmed.

The series originally debuted on the basic cabler back in 2019. The show was part of the network’s push into original scripted series, alongside other shows like “At Home With Amy Sedaris,” “I’m Sorry,” and “Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters.” However, TruTV’s original programming lineup has been winnowed down to virtually nothing in the past few years, with the only original series still on the network being the hidden camera show “Impractical Jokers.”

Likewise, fellow TNets like TBS and TNT -- all of which fall under the Warner Bros. Discovery umbrella -- have gone from notable rosters of scripted shows to having none. Most recently, the TBS comedy series ” Miracle Workers " was canceled after four seasons. That show featured a cast that included Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi.

“Tacoma FD” was set in a firehouse in the titular city in Washington state. The show followed the crew of the firehouse, who were portrayed by Broken Lizard’s Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme as well as Eugene Cordero, Marcus Henderson, Gabriel Hogan, and Hassie Harrison. Christopher Avila joined the show in Season 4 as the newest rookie at the station. Guest stars throughout the show’s run included Joe Pantoliano, Nat Faxon, Jimmy Tatro, UFC champion Stipe Miocic, Whitney Cummings, David Arquette, and Tony Danza.

The series was created by Lemme and Heffernan. Both served as executive producers alongside David Miner and Greg Walter from 3 Arts Entertainment and Inman Young and Savey Cathey from A24 Studios .

TV Line first reported the cancellation.
