Today, Jim Carrey is a household name. People know him for his comedic acting and his wide collection of funny films. He is currently not doing any film, but was involved in his TV show, ‘Kidding’. Carrey’s last stint on TV was in the 90’s show ‘Living Color’.
An unfortunate news has come though, Kidding has been cancelled. Created by Dave Holstein, the show will not return for its third season. The second season had arrived earlier this year on premiere cable.
Jim played the role of Jeff aka Mr Pickels who, is an icon for children’s televison and has a multimillion-dollar branding empire. The show displays how, when Mr Pickels’s family starts disorienting, his belief in fairy tales, also starts dwindling.
A statement on the cancellation of the show,by the network read :
“After two seasons, Kidding has concluded its run on Showtime. We are very proud to have aired this imaginative, critically-acclaimed and rewarding series, and we would like to thank Jim Carrey, Dave Holstein, Michael Aguilar, Michel Gondry and the entire cast and crew for their brilliant and tireless work.”
Besides Carrey, it also starred Judy Greer, Catherine Keener, Frank Langella, Cole Allen, Juliet Morris, and Justin Kirk.
