'Black Monday' Canceled At Showtime After 3 Seasons

Black Monday is done at Showtime after a three-season run.

Series star Paul Scheer confirmed the news last Thursday on the Twitch show Thursdays with Rob & Paul. It wasn’t widely reported until Thursday, following SpoilerTV posting about the news last week.

The series starred Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannels, Regina Hall, Scheer and Casey Wilson.

“I guess we haven’t said it, let’s say Black Monday was not renewed,” said Scheer on the show. “It’s been a known factor for months and months and months, but I guess no-one has officially said it. But now I have.” 

Here was the description of season 3:

Things are looking up for our motley crew as we groove into the ’90s. Mo (Don Cheadle) dips into the music business. But the crown jewel in his new venture, Nomi (guest star Adrienne Wells), a self-possessed young talent with the voice to prove it, might be too hot to handle. Meanwhile, Dawn (Regina Hall) is serving her sentence and herself by exploiting her business savvy behind bars. Freshman Congressman Blair (Andrew Rannells), a guppy navigating shark-filled political waters, is aided by his equally ambitious new Young Republican handler Werner (guest star Thomas Barbusca). Keith (Paul Scheer) is morphing, literally and figuratively, into a lost Leighman Brother, while the red-hot success of Skants is catapulting Tiff (Casey Wilson) to mega-moguldom. But all their happy days are numbered when it’s revealed that a killer is lurking in the shadows. As the body count climbs and the threats multiply, our band of traitorous traders will be running for cover before margin call. And how do jazz, drag queens, corndogs and fart closets factor into it?!

The series was created by showrunners and executive producers David Caspe and Jordan Cahan.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are also executive produced. Black Monday was a Showtime/Sony Pictures Television co-production
