2 Broke Girls aired on CBS on September 19, 2011, and has run for 6 seasons. The American sitcom was cancelled after giving us 138 episodes of great laughs and fun plot lines.
The two lead characters are Max Black (Kat Dennings), the street-smart wisecrack waitress who bakes, and Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs), the dejected wealthy heiress who loses all her money. Their on-screen chemistry is fantastic and it worked so well with the storyline that it became the anchor that held the show together for so long.
The series has received equal amounts of both positive and negative reviews. The criticism for the show primarily focuses on the overuse of sexually based jokes and racial stereotypes.
It was created by former Sex and the City showrunner Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings. The show was an instant hit for anyone who loved a great comedy sitcom, and they kept coming back for more to witness the charming friendship of the two leading ladies and to laugh at the drama that filled their lives.
The show revolves around the two main characters trying to build a cupcake empire. With Max being the "talent" and Caroline being the "brains." There are many supporting cast members who are just as funny, and the mismatch of characters and unseemly friendships create a whimsical show that's great for playing while you want to relax and chill out.
Although the show was an instant hit with fans, it gained a lot of negative reviews and controversies because of the type of comedic stance it took.
The Hollywood Reporter claimed that it was "the most disappointing new sitcom of the fall." Vulture commented asking, "Does it have to be so mean?" and Emily Nussbaum of The New Yorker wrote that the supporting characters were "so racist it is less offensive than baffling" but noted that the show had "so much potential."
Some of the reviews were quite positive too! With most critics stating the show had a lot of possibilities, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said the show started as "a modern Laverne & Shirley" and attracted many young people in the beginning. However, they've lost traction every season since then.
The cancellation of the series came as a surprise for both fans and the stars of the show. The announcement by CBS was made on May 12, 2017, but there was no official reason provided for the end of the series.
There are some possible reasons as to why the show came to a sudden demise after 6 seasons, it may have been its declining ratings over the series or CBS' and Warner Bros' disagreement for the need to create the space to launch three new sitcoms on the platform.
However, none of these have been confirmed, and there is yet to be an official announcement about why or if there's any plan for a proper finale. So, it stands cancelled as of now.
