Reba’s Malibu Country cancelled

Reba McEntire.

Sad news this weekend for Reba McEntire and “Malibu Country” fans. ABC has announced that they will not air a second season of the comedy, and has cancelled what was once named their highest-rated freshman comedy series of 2012. The series aired 18 episodes on its one and only season on ABC. The show followed the story of Reba’s character, a country singer, who had uprooted her family following her divorce from Nashville to Malibu, California. She was trying to keep her career going while raising two kids.

“Malibu Country” was Reba’s return to television after her show “Reba” had run from 2001 to 2007. “Reba” still gets airtime today on multiple stations, including CMT Canada. The show had guest appearances from stars like Blake Shelton, Laura Bell Bundy, and more. Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson had both previously expressed their interest in wanting to guest star on the sitcom as well.

ABC will be renewing Nashville, which has become a mega-hit for the station, so country music won’t be completely gone.

Are you sad to see the loss of “Malibu Country”? Did you get the chance to watch it while it was on-air?

Although they may no longer be co-hosting the ACM Awards, Blake Shelton & Reba will be reunited on the small screen very soon. According to HuffPost TV, Shelton is on his way to ABC’s Malibu Country. The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year will appear on the March 1st episode, playing none other than Reba’s brother.

We have to admit we’re excited! How long until Blake gets a sitcom of his own?
