The 2017-2018 TV Season Grim Reaper has pulled out his scythe to do some damage once again. Champions, the pretty charming comedy co-created by Mindy Kaling for NBC, has been canceled after its debut season. The show revolved around a gay, theater-obsessed teen from Ohio (breakout J.J. Totah) who winds up living with the father and uncle he didn’t know he had in Brooklyn in order to attend a prestigious theater school. His mother (Kaling) kept her son’s real father a secret because of his, uh, un-fatherly tendencies. THR reports that the show is still trying to find a second season at a new home — Netflix passed, but Hulu might be an option, which previously revived Kaling’s previous show The Mindy Project after it was canceled by Fox.
